    Default SSI Publisher LT

    Does anyone in the Marine group tell me how to use SSI Publisher LT and where are the instructions and help files. Will be creating/scripting output FBX files.

    Thank you for your interest in PublisherLT. You can go to for a recorded webinar we recently completed on PublisherLT. This will give you an overview of its functionality and how to script your own commands. In response to your request for outputing FBX files, we also wrote a command: FBXForModelSpace. It uses the AutoCAD -FBEXPORT command. The information can be found in our Knowledge Base and I also posted it below:

    Paste the following operation into your Operations.xml file in between the <dwgoperations> and </dwgoperations> elements. Restart the PublisherLT and use the Load Manager to select the drawings you want and choose the FBXForModelSpace operation for those drawings.


    <!--@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@-->
    <!--FBX Generation-->
    <!-- generate an FBX file for all visible objects in model space -->
    <!--@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@-->
    <operation id="FBXForModelSpace">
    <call procedure="ExecuteCommandForLayout">
    <string>-FBXEXPORT V A E "%outputfile"</string>
    <string>Model</string>
    <string>${baseDwgNameNamingConv}.fbx</string>
    <int>180</int>
    </call>
    </operation>


    In the FBEXPORT command,

    V = Visible
    The function is asking whether to export all Visible entities or only those Selected
    A = Types to export
    All types = Objects = Yes, Lights = Yes, Cameras = Yes, Materials = Yes
    Settings = User decides whether each of Objects, Cameras, Materials is set to Yes or No
    E = Request for how to handle textures
    Options are: Embed, Reference originals, and Copy originals
    Additional information on this AutoCAD command can be found on the AutoDesk website

    An advantage of PublisherLT is that it is user configurable. This means that ShipConstructor will store a pre-populated Operations.xml file for each user in %appdata%/SSI/ShipConstructorVersionOfChoice/EnterprisePlatform
