Opening WaterCAD and WaterGEMS models in HAMMER

Product(s): HAMMER
Version(s): 10.XX.XX.XX, 8.11.XX.XX
Area:  Modeling


Can I open WaterGEMS or WaterCAD models in HAMMER, for a transient analysis?


HAMMER uses the same file format as WaterGEMS and WaterCAD, so you can directly open the files as long as the models were saved in a version equal to or older than the version of HAMMER that you're using. The version number can be checked under Help > About (in V8) or File > Help > About (CONNECT Edition).

Additionally, WaterCAD and WaterGEMS include HAMMER elements and properties, so you can add and configure them in your model while working in WaterCAD or WaterGEMS. That way you can simply open the model in HAMMER and be able to compute a transient simulation right away.
