Lyondell partnered with Trinity to enhance Documentum functionality.

cadcapture is
CADCapture is…

… an easy-to use Documentum accessory that:

  • automatically extracts tag, text and title block information from Microstation and AutoCAD drawings
  • maps extracted drawing information directly to Documentum attributes and also registered tables.
benefits of cadcapture
Benefits of CADCapture
  • Configuration file can be modified to reflect plant or project-specific taxonomy
  • Provide central location and control for all company drawings










  • Provides vehicle to easily identify all drawings affected by a particular change
  • Synchronizes drawing title and revision number in the drawing with their associated Documentum attributes
  • Makes important drawing data searchable in Documentum without manual entry
  • Enables bulk check in of CAD files into a secure Documentum content repository

Bulk Loading


Process against up

To 8 Docbases

Process drawings for

Information not captured

during Manual check in

Captures data from

the drawing such as

equipment tags, line

numbers and title block


Enables users to get

desired information in

Documentum for reference

and searchability

the cadcapture architecture
The CADCapture Architecture
  • CADCapture is a Visual Basic application with a COM interface to Autocad 2000
  • CADCapture is configured through the .ini file to process information according to company standards
the cadcapture ini file
The CADCapture.ini File
  • Defines:
    • Title block, drawing number, and tag determination logic
    • Attribute data rules
    • Registered table definitions
    • Docbase connectivity information
    • Tag processing rules
  • Enables CADCapture to be customized to specific drawing labeling standards for each site.
parsing the anatomy of a tag
Parsing the Anatomy of a Tag
  • Sample Equipment Tag
    • M-1043-A
  • Broken down becomes
    • Field1(Prefix): M
    • Delimiter1: -
    • Field2(Seq No): 1043
    • Delimiter2: -
    • Field3(Suffix): A
anatomy of a tag cont
Anatomy of a Tag(cont)
  • Flexibility in naming taxonomy
    • Are fields required or optional?
    • Do fields have a required size or range of sizes?
    • Are delimiters required or optional?
    • Are spaces allowed between fields and delimiters?
    • Are there predetermined values (or filter list) that a field can contain, e.q., “M”, “AB”, or “####”
how does cadcapture work
How does CADCapture work?
  • User initiates the CADCapture process
  • CADCapture processes files to be selected or checks the Documentum Queue

process drawings in docbase
Process Drawings in Docbase
  • Automated-mode
    • Monitors up to 8 docbases
      • Processes docbases in a round-robin approach
  • Singular-Mode
    • Processes individual checked-out files
  • Handles queue requests to extract tags from drawings
  • Updates drawing object attributes
  • Updates registered tables
automated mode

Loops through docbases processing queued requests for tag extraction

singular mode processes a single checked out drawing
