The following example explains how to configure a column item for modules.

Prepare data for the module column items

In order to use a module column item in Smart Construction, the Module No property must be added to the Smart 3D tool map file. Models and drawings can then be published from Smart 3D to SmartPlant Foundation.

Map the Module No property to Smart Construction

The Module No property must be mapped to Smart Construction in order to correctly retrieve the component property. You must map the property to each type of class definition that the property uses in the column item.

For this example, CM_ModuleNo must be mapped to the ISPC_ComponentItem interface definition and SPC_ComponentItem_Module property definition.

Retrieve documents into Smart Construction

After you map the property to Smart Construction, retrieve the published documents (models and drawings) into Smart Construction.
