CAD Link for Master Builder

Post Posted: 06.12.2006 07:25

Hello forum,

I am looking for any information that I might find about Dietrich's interface with an inventory and account, costing program called Master Builder. The company that I am employeed by has asked me to look into a third party Software called CAD Link to help Dietrich's translate the output from the project data module into this Master Builder program. The sales person for the CAD Link Software claimed that he had never seen his product work with Dietrich's, but had heard of Dietrich's and was sure that it would work no problem. Wink I think that its more of a AutoCAD based program, but I thought that I would throw it out on the forum to see what the consence was about third party Software to translate project data.

I appreciate any input.

Rick

Hi rhill225,

it would be good to know which file formats these programs can import.

Our program can export the following data formats:

-DXF or 3D-DXF from the construction program
-*.csv from the project data program (material lists and dimension takeoff)
-text files in a special format (DSA) for the dimension takeoff

We also have an own module for costing and quoting with the possibility to import/export in GAEB-format.

Please contact your local salesman to find out what is the best solution for you.

Best regards,

Jens

According to our Master Builder input and program users...the Master Builder program will read *.csv files, which means that it will read the output directly from the project data program of Dietrich's. No third party Software required...sorry CAD link you get the boot! Crying or Very sad Thanks Jen! You have helped shore up the confidence and justification of Dietrich's in this application. Laughing

Sold on Dietrich's

You have an edit button in the right upper corner of each of your posts.

To your data transfer problem:
The order of the fields in the csv file is the same as the order of the columns in your material lists. The order of the columns in the material list can be changed in the project data program.

Thank Joe!

I will try to save space and posts by editing my post rather than re-posting. Nice to see you have your Christmas decorations up. Tis the season!

Hi Rick,

you do not have to save space and posts but I thought that you did not know about the edit button. A lot of people do not see or realise it.
