You can export an MIS list to a file.
You can export model data to Manufacturing Information Systems (MIS). The MIS export supports the following formats:
DSTV - The exported file contains the MIS information written in the DSTV format.
FabTrol / KISS - We recommend using the FabTrol reports instead of the MIS export for exporting FabTrol data. The FabTrol reports are available for the Steel Detailing role in the US environment. If you do not use a suitable environment you may also contact your local support for the FabTrol files.
EJE - US environment, Imperial role only. Structural Material Manager internally stores all dimensions in sixteenths. Its External Data Interface writes all dimensions, such as widths and lengths, except for Beam and Channel descriptions, in sixteenths of an inch. As an example the length 12'-8 7/8 is equivalent to 2446 sixteenths, which is calculated as (feet * 192) + (inches * 16) + (eighths * 2) = (12 * 192 + 8 * 16 + 7 *2).
EPC - The EPC (Estimating and Production Control) module of SDS/2 requires multinumbering to be active.
