Export Conversion

Export conversion can be used to convert IMPACT names into numbers when the PCP(Eliplan) export is created. The reason for the conversion is often that the IMPACT names can't be recognized in the ERP system and therefore needs to be converted into something that the ERP system can read. 

The export conversion is structured with three columns:

Type - Sets the attribute that should be converted in the export.

IMPACT - The name/value in IMPACT.

Export - The name in the PCP(Eliplan) export.

The table below shows the different types that can be selected under Export conversions and an example on the IMPACT name and the converted name in the PCP export. 

TypeIMPACTExportExplanation
PRODUCTHC21110010Converts the product in the element definition.
QUANTITY_INSULATIONPolystyrene401010

Converts the insulation material selected in the element - How IMPACT reads the "IMPACT cell" can be set as a project propertie.

QUANTITY_REINFORCEMENT_BAR10-B201010Converts the reinforcement bars. All bars and stirrups with the same diameter and quality are summarized - The IMPACT value is: "Diameter"-"Quality"
QUANTITY_REINFORCEMENT_BENDED_MESH5100-Nps500315200Converts the reinforcement bended mesh. All bended mesh with the same diameter and quality are summarized - How IMPACT reads the "IMPACT cell" can be set as a project propertie.
QUANTITY_REINFORCEMENT_GROUPA1501410Converts the reinforcement group - How IMPACT reads the "IMPACT cell" can be set as a project propertie.
QUANTITY_REINFORCEMENT_MESH5200-Nps500305200Converts the reinforcement mesh. All mesh with the same diameter and quality are summarized - How IMPACT reads the "IMPACT cell" can be set as a project propertie.
QUANTITY_REINFORCEMENT_WIREWire025140Converts the wires in pre-stressed elements.
QUANTITY_SURFACEPainted502001Converts the drawing attributes "SURFACE_TREATMENT_NON_MOULDING" & "SURFACE_TREATMENT_MOULDING" - In project properties is it possible to set how 
QUANTITY_VOLUMEWhite Cement Type 1201003Converts the drawing attributes "CONCRETE_TREATMENT", "CONCRETE_TREATMENT_INNER", "CONCRETE_TREATMENT_OUTER", "CONCRETE_TREATMENT_PANEL_1", & "CONCRETE_TREATMENT_PANEL_2"

Table 1: Export Conversion table

Its possible to set different rules for when and how IMPACT should see the values under "IMPACT".

The different settings can be found under "Project Properties - ERP". The marked settings in "Figure 1: Project properties - ERP" is the settings that sets the rules for the export conversion.

"Table 2: Export Conversion settings" shows the different settings available in "Project properties - ERP".

SettingOptionsExplanation
Conversion of productYes / NoSets if the product should be converted.
ConcreteNo / Treatment or Material / (Material - Quality - Exposure Class) or Material / Material Sets the reference naming for "QUANTITY_VOLUME". Treatment, Quality & Exposure class is drawing attributes. 
InsulationINSU + Thickness / Material / Material - ThicknessSets the reference naming for "QUANTITY_INSULATION". INSU is a drawing attribute.
SurfacesPAINT / Treatment of surface up/dn or 1Sets the reference naming for "QUANTITY_SURFACE". If PAINT is set will it always write "PAINT" in the export. "Treatment of surface up" and "Treatment of surface down" is drawing attributes.
Reinforcement GroupGROUP / NAMESets the reference naming for "QUANTITY_REINFORCEMENT_GROUP"
Reinforcement MeshName + Quality / Diameter + Quality / Name + Quality and Diameter + QualitySets the reference naming for "QUANTITY_REINFORCEMENT_MESH"
