Bentley Systems Inc. released a series of announcements at its invitation-only “Be Inspired: Infrastructure Best Practices Symposium and Awards Event” in Charlotte, N.C.

 

This newest version of MicroStation features innovative and flexible value-creative enhancements for infrastructure professionals highlighted by RealDWG library support and integrated 3D printing capabilities. SELECTseries updates for all Bentley products maintain forward and backward compatibility across the entire V8i lifecycle.

 

Initially available in October 2009, the new version of ProjectWise Navigator V8i (SELECTseries 1) can be used by infrastructure teams to interactively view, analyze, and augment project information. Bentley also introduced i-models to make the process dynamic and help feedback flow in both directions so any participant can add value. An i-model is a container for open infrastructure information exchange.

 

With ProjectWise Navigator V8i (SELECTseries 1), users can:

 

  • Take advantage of its ability to be customized and its ease of use to open multiple file types—including DGN, DWG, and i-models—with a single software solution

  • Explore models naturally and intuitively in real time, and manipulate view settings to interactively change geometry display on screen

  • Perform intelligent analysis, find business intelligence behind geometry, and measure distances, areas, and volumes with complete engineering precision

  • Simulate what-if scenarios, optimize schedules, and dynamically resolve clashes to reduce on-site errors.
