Here you determine the information that your mdb file is supposed to contain.

With the check box „Keep sub positions together with main positions“ insertion elements of a curtain wall will not be written as a separate position in the mdb file.

Settings Position Drawing

In the tab „Position Drawing“ you can determine how many position drawings and which information of a position are to be created. At least one position drawing should be activated here.

Attention!

After creating a mdb, please copy the referenced drawings and texts from the output directory into another directory or evaluate the data. The position drawings will be exported numbered consecutively. Therefore the position drawings would be overwritten with another mdb after the export.
