RefMerge automates the task of merging master files and their 2D, 3D and raster reference files into a new output “merged” file. RefMerge contains all of the options needed to quickly create a complete set of project files that show everything you want, the way you want it, in a manner that can easily be archived, distributed, translated, submitted or plotted without concern for missing reference files. RefMerge gives you options to handle all aspects and potential problems associated with the merging process, including output file naming and location, element symbology control, non-displayed element inclusion or exclusion and much more.
RefMerge also allows you to further limit the merge to only include elements within a specific area defined by a shape, fence or view. This is in addition to smoothly handling existing reference file clipping boundaries and voids.
RefMerge for V8 also offers a new merging method that can be used to merge all external vector reference files into the output file as new models. The MicroStation V8 version includes ProjectWise support.
RefMerge then changes the reference file attachments in the output file to point to the new models rather than the external design files. The MicroStation V8 version includes ProjectWise support.
