DesignSpark Electrical saves all its drawing files in DWG format; Database information is in a unique SQL format. DesignSpark Electrical can open any DWG file up to rel. 2010 without requiring conversion. Please see separate help item regarding the import of existing DWG files, noting especially that imported electrical schematics will not adopt the intelligent functionality of schematics drawn in the tool.
Drawings of non-electrical items can be imported without a problem. Bills of Materials can be exported as Excel, text or XML formats (in addition to the direct online link to the RS website). Drawings can be exported as DWG or PDF formats.
