AVEVA Plant/Marine can export RVM file to AVEVA Review, so the RVM file contains all the geometry information. The RvmTranslator can read RVM file and translate to STEP, IGES, STL, etc. And so can exchange model data with other CAD software, such as Autodesk, Solidworks, Pro/e, etc.

2.RvmTranslator Usage

RvmTranslator can translate PDMS RVM to STEP, IGES, STL, etc. The usage of RvmTranslator is easy, after you download the RvmTranslator, run RvmTranslator by RvmTranslator.bat, and input the RVM file name and the export file type, such as STEP, IGES, STL.
