The project details are defined by 12d Users and can contain information to be placed on all company title blocks if desired. This panel first appears when a new 12d project is started (Project -> Details -> Details) and calls a standard “project_details.dtl” file from the 12d setup directory. The “project_details.dtl” file can be edited using the “Project -> Management -> Details Editor” panel to match your requirements for a company title block.

Note: All the setting can be amended, but it is recommended that the settings “names” not contain any spaces and the 12d provided “SnippetTrimesh *” options etc are maintained as a minimum.

The Project Details can be passed from the Project level down onto individual strings, giving the power of setting things list Project number, revision, client name etc onto each string.  This can then be output via the IFC files and passed onto other DE Model users.

Please have a watch of the video below and call support if you have any further questions.

To view the project details panel, Use: Project => Details => Details

As discussed within the Project_Details video above. Some users may wish to stop the panel from appearing when a new 12d Project is created.

This is NOT recommended by EXDS, as the benefits of the project details are shown in the video.  But if you do insist in wanting to turn the panel off. Please add the following variables into your env_config.4d option.

  1. show_project_details_4d                        1 (on) 0 (off)
  2. always_validate_project_details_4d    1 (on) 0 (off)
  3. project_details_4d                                    $USER/John_Smith.dtl  (remember to place the full directory path if you don’t use the $USER directory

If you have any problems editing your “env_config.4d” with the above variables, please give the Technical Support line a call.
