How do you limit or filter the space class current results in CI?


I created a child classification in the Space Class Current classification. In TRIRIGA, I am able to filter the selection to just this child classification via the filter in Report Manager. However, for my CAD Integrator users, it seems to be pulling the entire Space Class Current classification. Is it possible to limit that list in CAD Integrator?

Okay, I figured it out. In CAD Mapping, there is a Report Filter that is referencing a query called “triSpaceClassCurrent – CI – Available Space Class”. In this query, I added filters to filter down the list.

How do you rename forms without breaking CAD Integrator mapping?


I’ve made some modifications to a handful of forms that are connected to CAD BO Mapping records (e.g. triEmployee, triSpace, triFloor, etc.). I’ve updated the label to follow the traditional TRIRIGA customization standards and relabeled them with “cst” such as “cst-triSpace”. However, in AutoCAD, when I attempt to Smart Attach and/or Publish drawings, I get an error that seems to point towards the GUI Name of the form not lining up to the CAD Mapping. How do I get CAD Integrator to pick up the same form but with a different label?

When renaming those forms, you must make a few changes to the CAD backend:

  • 1. Create new CAD Mapping records that point to the new form. I recommend checking the old mapping records to make sure all fields are added properly.
  • 2. If you added any required fields, I believe that they need to be added to the CAD Mapping record.
  • 3. Open the CAD Hierarchy and make sure each node is pointing to the new Mapping record that you created from Step 1.
  • 4. Update the form on the CAD Label Style to point to the new form.

Note: If you are on a newer platform, I recommend keeping the form names as “tri”, and using object labels to manage versioning.

How do you change CI Organization Mapping from Org Name to Org ID?


We have multiple organizations with the same name. We would like to change the CAD Integrator > Batch Associate > Organization Mapping to display the Organization ID instead of the Organization Name. How can I change the list from showing Organization Name to show Organization ID?

You will need to change both the Organization Mapping and the query to call only the Organization ID. After that, clear all caches in Admin Console and do a Full Sync in the CAD drawing. Following these steps, we changed the Organization Mapping from showing Name to showing ID and changing it back. It does not appear to have any negative impact, but there has been no detailed regression testing…

Is AutoCAD LT compatible with CAD Integrator functionality?


Is AutoCAD LT compatible with CAD Integrator functionality?

No, it’s not compatible. See the compatibility matrix for IBM TRIRIGA CAD Integrator/Publisher. At the bottom, the comments provide more details.

For example: “My understanding is that the CAD Integrator does not work with the LT versions of AutoCAD because LT versions do not support database connectivity and cannot use programming tools such as VBS, LISP and ObjectARX.”

Is there a way for CAD Integrator to have multiple layers of labels?


We are working on CAD integrator (for AutoCAD) and we are wondering if it is possible to generate labels for spaces (based on label style) on different layers of the floor plan. For example, displaying the name and area on triLabelLayer and space class on triClassLayer. Actually, it seems that all the labels are created on the triLabelLayer. Is it possible to customize to allow multiple layers for labels?

I reviewed this with the developer. It would be a request for enhancement (RFE).

How do you customize the menu of CAD Integrator for AutoCAD?


Regarding the IBM TRIRIGA CAD Integrator plugin for AutoCAD, is it possible to customize the menu? Such as changing the name or hiding some menu item? If yes, do you know which files have to be changed?

I reviewed this with the developer. It would be a request for enhancement (RFE).

Is CAD Integrator 12.1.6 compatible with Windows 10 OS?


Is anyone having issues publishing CAD drawings via IBM TRIRIGA Platform 3.5.2, CAD Integrator 12.1.6, and Windows 10 OS? The support compatibility matrix mentions support for IBM TRIRIGA 3.5.2 with Windows 10 OS, but it doesn’t specifically mention that CAD Integrator 12.1.6 is supported by Windows 10 OS.

IBM TRIRIGA CI 12.1.6 with Windows 10 OS is supported and should publish without issue.
