Database

The Export, Database command allows you to export database data from Pointwise.

The entities that you have selected via either the List panel or the Display window determine the file formats that will be available for export. For example, if a database model is selected before using the Export, Database command, only file types that support database models will be displayed.

Supported database file formats are summarized in the table below. Press the button to show the table.
