For those who have to send a SQL Server project to the field, (or to us for tech support), here is the workflow.

 

Create a new project in Plant 3D:

Check Copy Settings from existing project, and locate and select the project you wish to send:

SNAGHTML15934dc

On Page 5 of the wizard, choose SQLite local database.

SNAGHTML15a5537

Click Next and then Finish to create the project.

Click out the isometric drawing directories (we generally do not need generated isos). Clean out an extra specs that are not needed to reproduce issues.

 

Use the Copy Drawing to Project option to bring in drawings from the SQL Server project.

 

Once you have the new project cleaned and updated, zip it up using your favorite zip application (7-Zip).
