How many documents can I build?

The practical limit is in the range of 30,000 documents, but depends on many factors.

To see how many documents you are licensed to build:

  1. Start BuildPlus.
  2. In the Help menu, click DBDOC License.
  3. The number of documents you are licensed to build is stated in the first line.

The following document types are counted toward your build:

  • CAD files / Sheets in CLD files (blank sheets are not counted)
  • Process Portal B / Operate IT / Conductor NT models (but not submodels)
  • SODG Graphics (but not symbols)
  • Ladder (each counts for 50 documents)
  • AutoCAD, MicroStation and PDF sheets (each counts for 1/3 of a document, rounded up)
  • Text, RTF and Batch files
  • 800xA VB v.5 graphics
  • S+ and PGP graphics

The build process counts the number of documents. The hyperlink compilation is terminated if the licensed document count is exceeded. It is your option to either reduce your build set or opt for a larger license. For time limited licenses, a warning is displayed if there are 30 days or less remaining in the license.
