HOW TO MIGRATE FROM NOVAPOINT 20 TO 21, AND FROM QUADRI MODEL 2 TO 3

This Migration Guide explains how to go from Novapoint 20 to 21, and from Quadri 2 to 3. The guide does not include the installation steps, but give advice to what steps to take for the quadri models.

Upgrading a local Quadri model from 20 to 21

Do not use this process for worksets downloaded from Trimble Quadri server.

  1. Install the new version of Novapoint 21
  2. Backup the local Quadri model*
  3. Open the local Quadri model from Novapoint 21
  4. You are asked if you want to upgrade model
  5. Answer Yes
  6. The Quadri model will be converted to use the new Feature Catalogue [Quadri 1930 (1.25)]

*After being upgraded from 20 to 21, the Quadri model cannot be downgraded to 20.

Upgrading a NP20/TQ 2.0 model to a NP21/TQ 3.0 in QMM

1. Upgrade Trimble Quadri server to 3.0, see guide: here

2. Login to QMM on the upgraded server

3. In QMM, go to Models page, and set the model you want to upgrade unavailable

4. Go to Server page­, then to Maintenance tab and click on Upgrade Models

5. Select version to upgrade to: 3.0, and select the model you want to upgrade

6. Then click the “Start Upgrade” button

7. Upgrade has started and might take some time. Go to the Models-list to see status.

8. Click on the model and see that it has new version 3.0

9. Then upgrade the FC, on Models page, choose: Upgrade Feature Catalog

10. Select feature catalog you want to upgrade to and select your model, click Upgrade feature catalog

11. Click Yes on next dialog, this is NOT reversible, so be sure you want this

12. Refresh Models page and click on model to see that it has the correct FC

13. Now set the model available and you can download new worksets for use in NP21 clients.

Upgrading Design Tasks

  • With Novapoint 21 we have done changes that require upgrading the tasks to be able to work with them.
  • Note that some tasktypes will require preceding tasks to be upgraded to work as intended.
  • Look for the (!)-mark on the task icon to see if it needs upgrading.

ALIGNMENT TASK

1. Click to edit the alignment task.

2. A dialog appears to select a template. It is now important to select the correct template as there is no longer one type of alignment task.

If the alignment task is a reference alignment (centerline) then select what discipline it belongs:

  • Road
  • Railway
  • Pipeline
  • Sea
  • Air
  • Other

These alignment tasks will get network elements as part of the tasks in the Quadrimodel and only these ones can be used as reference alignement (centerline) in the design modules. Non-alignment line can only be used as boundary lines.

If the alignment task is only used as boundary alignments then select the template Non-alignment Line

When setting it to be a Non-alignment Line then it will not get network elements. It is also necessary to set what kind of result feature it should be, as Non-alignment Line consists of a feature separate from reference lines.

3. Press Finish on the task to complete the upgrade.

ROAD/RAILWAY TASK

When starting to work with a Road/Railway task it will check if the alignment task for the reference alignment is upgraded. It also checks that the alignment and road/railway tasks used as calculation basis and in all preceding tasks are upgraded before you are able to continue.

When starting to edit a road/railway task you may see this dialog:

Press YES and you will see which tasks needs your attention to be able to continue working:

To upgrade a road/railway task do the following:

  1. Click to edit the road/railway task.
  2. It will now start an upgrading process using the cross-sections already calculated for the model.
  3. You will get a notice in the process info that “Task ‘XXXX’ upgraded successfully”.
  4. Press Finish on the task to confirm and complete the upgrade.
  5. If the task has a calculation basis it will now start a new complete build.

WATER AND SEWER|CABLE TASK

When starting to work with a WS|Cable task it will check if the the reference alignment is upgraded. It also checks that tasks used as calculation basis and all preceding tasks are upgraded before you are able to continue.

Task needs to be manually upgraded to NP21 (opening a downloaded workset you must reserve the task to able to upgrade).

1. Switch to AutoCAD environment to upgrade the WS|Cable model. IF right clicking WS task and Edit Task;

2. In AutoCAD; select WS task and Open Construction dialogue. Click YES to upgrade.

3. REMARK: IF one or more Trenches are related to a Road/railway task, and the predecessors are not updated, a message will be presented, after Clicking YES to upgrade of WS model;

Click Yes to list the predecessors tasks that must be upgraded.

4. Switch back to Novapoint Base (Quadri model) and upgrade predecessors (How to upgrade ALIGNMENT and ROAD/RAILWAY tasks; see chapters above) Due to changes in Feature Catalogue (the NP20 feature “Formation” is in NP21 replaced with new feature “Subgrade Surface”), you need to update WS|Cable Calculation Basis .

5. After upgrading predecessors (Alignment and Road/railway tasks). Open Dynamic Query dialogue and add new Subgrade Surface.

6. Go back to AutoCAD; select WS task and Open Construction dialogue. Click YES to upgrade.

7. Click Save in Construction dialogue.

8. Open Cross Section-Quantity calculation.

9. Select all trenches and Update. Click Build and recalculate.

10. Close Calculation dialogue. The upgrade from NP20 to NP21 is completed.

BRIDGE TASK

1. Click on the reserved Bridge task, right click and choose Edit, then you click OK in the tool.

Note: - You must migrate the connected Road/Rail task before you migrate the Bridge task.

TUNNEL TASK

1. Click on the reserved Tunnel task, right click and choose Edit, then you click OK in the tool.

Note: - You must migrate the connected Road/Rail task before you migrate the Tunnel task.

- After you have migrated the Tunnel task, for some situations you can’t change the geometry anymore. A a better solution is to model a new tunnel task from scratch. Unfortunately the import function of tunnel geometry files from NP 20 doesn’t work either.

Another workaround is to manually copy the conversion file from the Novapoint installation. Copy this file:

.\ Configuration\Default\Templates\Tasks\TunnelDesign\DefaultTunnel\Novapoint.QuadriModel.Tunnel For DCM.cf.xml

to all the tunnel tasks you have migrated. Replace the existing file with the same name on these tasks. You find the directory for the tunnel tasks by clicking on the tasks in the process tree and reading the GUID-value. The GUID-value corresponds to a directory marked with brackets under the project directory, like this: {661be673-3db1-4fd9-8ff4-6c89d8b8a79e}

Note that you have to turn on “Show internal values” to see the GUID-value in the property window:
