We are proud to announce that the ECAD Database for CADWorx will be available in our store soon. We showed it briefly at CADWorx University 2010, and since then have gotten more features included.

The goal in creating this database was to add functionality that users request on a regular basis. The highlights include aiding the process of creating a line list, populating the drawing names for process lines, and matched equipment, importing data from a project, exporting a pipeline attributes file to ISOGEN, export a query to Excel with a button, some general form cleanup, and linking to a SQL database. Also included with the database are a database.tbl (P&ID database table file) and a batch to allow using the database as the default when creating a new project.
On a personal note, I wish I would have had this when I was designing as it would have made my life much easier. This database brings additional functionality that reflects years of learning P&ID. For the first time, you can have drawing names for linked lines in your line lists. Also, with this database, it’s easy to test what your project will look like since we import the data from other projects leaving your live project secure.
