Good news to Industry Model users!
In Map 3D 2012 Release, Industry Model functionalities could be used with file-based industry model drawings. Those drawings are regular DWG files that contain an industry model in SQLite. What you see are just *.dwg, *.dwt files.
How to work with those file-based industry model drawings?
You could find some sample industry model drawing templates under folder %\AppData\Local\Autodesk\AutoCAD Map 3D 2012\R18.2\enu\Template\Industry Templates. Moreover, you could customize drawing template or drawing files in Autodesk Infrastructure Administrator by yourself. There are two ways: create based on sample DWT and create new DWT. And we will show you how to do it step by step:
Create based on sample industry model DWT:
Select File->Open (See Picture1). Open an existing sample DWT.
Use Administrator functionalities in the same way as in Oracle provider
Click File->Save/ Save as to save it as DWT, DWG files. You could also save it as SQLite files.
In this case, the DWT, DWG created will have configured form and an embedded display model.
Create new DWT:
In create new industry model, select modules, set units and spatial settings. Click OK to create.
After creating it, configure it with Administrator functionalities and then save it.

In Map 3D, you could new DWG with file-based industry model dwt files, or open an existing file though double click. Steps are the same as work with a regular DWG file.
And here are some tips and tracks you may be interested in:
- If you assign Global Coordinate System in the file, CS of its industry model will be changed at the same time. But the coordinates of features will not be transformed with the CS change.In create new industry model, select modules, set units and spatial settings. Click OK to create.
- Most Oracle-based Industry Model functions are supported in files-based industry models drawings. And do not forget to save after work!
