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 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.

Why is the floor plan extremely zoomed out in the Graphics tab?


When publishing one of my floor plans from AutoCAD to TRIRIGA, and opening the Graphics tab, my floor plan shows up extremely zoomed out and I cannot figure out why. This has happened with a few of my plans, and I’ve tried a few different things that don’t seem to work. Along with this, my legend shows a very far distance from the floor plan, which doesn’t make sense, because the legend is right next to the plan in AutoCAD. Anyone have the same issue or know how to fix this?

Can you remove graphics from a floor record?


If a person mistakenly adds a floor drawing to an incorrect floor, there is no method of using IBM TRIRIGA tools (TRIRIGA itself or CAD Integrator) to actually remove the graphic from the floor record.

A request for enhancement (RFE ID 109781) has been created to address this issue. I respectfully request that you vote for this RFE if you would like to see the CAD Integrator product have the ability to remove the graphic from the floor record. If you do not currently have an IBM ID, you can sign up for one at no cost.

How do you use drawing labels for international measurements?


We manage properties globally so some of our locations are measured in Imperial and some are in Metric. What is the best way to manage this type of scenario so that our drawing and graphics section labels are not incorrectly sized when they are viewed from other global geographies?

The best way to address this situation is to have 2 sets of labels for your drawings, and 2 sets of labels for your TRIRIGA graphics section. You will need to adjust the height of the label elements to work for both situations. We are considering an enhancement to automatically scale according to the drawing units.

How do you reduce the PDF file size of an exported drawing?


We are currently using TRIRIGA 10.5.1/3.5.1.1. One of our user requests is to try and reduce the PDF size for an exported drawing from the Graphics tab. Of course, one way might be to hide a few of the layers before exporting. Apart from this, is there any other way to compress the file that is exported from the Graphics tab?

What would be the purpose of reducing the file size? (1) If you were expecting the export to run faster, that would not be possible except by turning off layers. TRIRIGA will process all the displayed graphic entities when generating the PDF. (2) If you want a smaller file size to make storage and transfer easy, then you can try using any third-party tool on the PDF file export after the fact. Note that I have no idea how compressible the graphic export is right now.
