Problem

Is it possible to open or import a SewerCAD or SewerGEMS (.SWG / .SWR / .STSW) model in WaterCAD or WaterGEMS?

Is it possible to open or import a WaterCAD or WaterGEMS (.WCD / .WTG) model in SewerCAD or SewerGEMS?

Solution

Currently the file formats are quite different between WaterCAD/WaterGEMS and SewerCAD/SewerGEMS, so the model files cannot be directly opened or imported.

As a workaround, you can export the element information to a standard file format such as Shapefiles, then use Modelbuilder to import them into the other application. This can be a tedious process though, and some information (such as a pump definitions) will not be included in the Shapefile export.
