Professional Features: CAD, GIS, Google Earth Import and Export

DXF Exchange:  This module allows the user to import pipe data (lines and polylines) from AutoCAD to create a pipe system model in Pipe2018. Pipe2018 will also export the model and text labels back into AutoCAD.  This allows for model presentation and sharing in the AutoCAD environment, and the use of AutoCAD capabilities for plotting and other operations. This feature does NOT require that AutoCAD be installed on the same machine as Pipe2018.

Google Earth Exchange:  This module allows the user to import data from Google Earth KMZ files with embedded KML.  Attributes from KMZ and KML may be matched up with attributes in the model, such as pipe diameter.  Also data may be exported to Google Earth KMZ. This feature does NOT require that Google Earth be installed on the same machine as Pipe2018.

GIS Exchange:  This module imports and exports Pipe2018 data to and from shapefiles.  The GIS interface is a fully-compatible model maintenance option for several users with different uses for the same model data set.  This feature does NOT require that ArcGIS or another GIS application be installed on the same machine as Pipe2018.
