How to retain Title Block data/information when separate DWG & DGN sheets are exported from Promis.e and imported into MicroStation?

Dear Sirs,

We are required by one of our Customers to supply them with DGN and DWG copies of the Electrical Schematics we have designed for their Project.

The issue they are having is once the Schematics have been exported into either DWG's or DGN's the Title Block becomes non-conformant due to the attributes being exploded (or appear to be exploded). Microstation doesn't allow them to import the Project file (.prj).

It's important that our Customer gets the attributes contained within the drawing as they are converted into metadata when imported into ProjectWise.

Would you be kind enough to either advise on the issue or explain the process of exporting and importing the title block and what we need to do to achieve an output which retains the attributes please?

Kind Regards, Dave.

  • Hi Dave,

    You have mentioned that the user are being supplied with Electrical Drawings. But you also have mentioned that the Title block become non-conformant due to the attributes being exploded. Do your customer want to change the attributes of the title block or they want to just view them.? And the Attributes for the Title Block are stored in Database which is not the case in Microstation or AutoCAD. Hence when DGN are converted to DWG the current Attributes values are converted to Tags which can be viewed in AutoCAD but they don't have any intelligence to them as in case of Promis.e.

    It's important that our Customer gets the attributes contained within the drawing as they are converted into metadata when imported into ProjectWise

    If the user need to use the Promis.e Projects and import them to ProjectWise they need to have Promis.e with ProjectWise Integration.

  • Hi Satish,

    Thank you for helping with this query.

    Do your customer want to change the attributes of the title block or they want to just view them.?

    The Customer just wants to be able to view them

    And the Attributes for the Title Block are stored in Database which is not the case in Microstation or AutoCAD

    Are attributes stored within the Title Blocks of individual DGN files/sheets?

    We normally supply the Customer with DGN's by sending the files that are contained within "C:\promise Data\My Projects" and then copy the DGN's from a particular project folder (see attached photo). Is this the correct method? Do they need any other files from within the project folder?

    Kind Regards, Dave
