Information on MIS file types

See below for information on MIS file types.

  • DSTV

    The exported file contains the MIS information written in the DSTV format.

  • EJE

    US Imperial version 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.
