ProSteel:

  • 264 Fixes!!
ProSteel MicroStation crashed when 'seed2d' and 'seed3d' have been used.
The Detail Center Express option dispatch blocks didn't work properly.
One of the blocks got inserted on the zero point of the drawing instead of inside the frame.
DetailCenter list didn't updated if the model view was closed.
In this case the list must have been cleared or the DetailCenter must have been completely closed.
Otherwise the program crashed if some operations were done (e.g. calling a preview).
When 'open 2D drawing' got selected in right click context, then 2D detail center dialog closed.
This removed the flexibility to go back to the model.
Wrong orientation of curved shapes fixed in PSB import.

The following crash has been fixed:

1. Create a new DGN using seed as "PS-S4-US-CDN_Imp".
2. Place a beam and add web angle connection at both ends using grouping ON.
3. Open 2D Detail Center (Standard).
4. Apply Standard detail style to the group.
5. In 2D Detail Center dialog, go to "Views" tab.
6. Select the View and click "Preview" from right context menu.

Using -create clean drawing- on a 2D drawing the holes in shapes and plates disappeared.
Using -create clean drawing- on a 2D drawing some colors have changed. I.e. for example the position flags.
Performance issues with 2D views of ProSteel objects have been fixed.

Using the 2D display option to show different colors for beams, columns, bracings didn't responde right.

8.11.4.42 import in Microstation Special parts are not transfered via .psb. (Before making the special part by PS_create_Spezpart the parts have been volumemodells).
User has 100 of them in the AutoCAD modells he wants to transfer.

ProSteel is messing up the scale of references somehow.
Opening, saving, closing, opening again a dgn with references in pure Microstation everything is fine.
Doing the same in ProSteel the scale for references will be changed.

Steps to reproduce:
Open Dgn file>>Go to Prosteel >>Positioning>>Positioning to all parts.
2)Go to connection center>>Column/Beam connections>>Web
Result: Unhandled exception while closing "change positioning dialog box".
Abnormal termination of Prosteel.
1. Open a fresh DGN file.
2. Place a member.
3. Go to Connection center>>StrucLink>>Export.
4. Go to PSMS main menu, File>>Close.
5. Click New file button icon.
6. Create new file. Input some name.

Black & Veatch
When using the option in the model to place elevation flags, if a different value is selected for the origin point, this value is lost. Closing and reopening the dialog box, even simply closing the dialog box, causes the origin point value to reset to 0.
This causes the 2D output to appear with incorrect values.
Black & Veatch
Black & Veatch requires line weights to appear in order to match their companies symbology and leveling standards.
During the ProSteel 2D Output and as noted by Anne Marie Garkohill, in the modeler portion as well, these lineweights do not seem to be displayed. When tested the following comments were noted:
" While in MS the drop element works sporadically with the 2D PS cell. If you use the change attributes command it will assign the new line weight but it does not graphically appear. My printing test also indicated that all lines print as weight zero. When drawing new lines through the PS MS interface line weight is also ignored. " - Unknown
This is a Bug (Unless there is a setting incorrectly set in the environment) Please note however that this may already be fixed in the first official update for SS4 soon to be released. Testing neext to be done with this new patch first.
"If changes are made to how lineweights are handled in ProSteel then Widget Tables may need to be redone." - Hratch Nerdjivanian
Black & Veatch
Detail Style Settings Mentioned Below:
1- Height above ToS markings: Using the text parameter $(E) in 'Descriptions-->Additional Text --> Views' with the '2D Display--> Views --> Object Display' setting 'Global Format String' to display elevation is not displaying incorrect heights. (See Issue05-Img01)
2- Also to use the $(E) method, labels need to be enabled in the model before they will appear in the 2D drawing. ***May be related to a current fix. Needs to be retested with new SS4 update
3- If we select “Name and Elevation" from '2D Display--> Views --> Object Display', the same problem with incorrect elevation, plus the fact we need the option to remove the prefix, or change it to something else than the default “EL=” that comes automatically.
*** Note that the incorrect Elevations being displayed may be directly related to Issue Number 1122. Please check again once this issue has been addressed.
Black and Veatch
Major Issue
When creating previews (this also applies to the 2D block creation, which is where the real problem happens) the result of the display for the ProSteel shapes (columns, beams, etc) can be different from one refresh to the next sometimes showing the elements properly sometimes only showing their part label, sometimes neither will show.
This should be looked at with the new SS4 update..
Also note that refreshing previews is sometimes extremely slow.
Black & Veatch
Moment symbols applied to the ends of beams is not working properly, you can assign the moment symbol but then the beam does not appear.
Carsten already looking into this issue according to Tegel.
Black & Veatch
Black & Veatch would like to have a new option available in the dynamic bracing.

When selecting the plate geometry they need an option to not place any plates.
Using the “Without connection plates” is not a workaround because it places and connects the bracing elements to the support elements (Beams or Columns) and what they want is to be able to create a template for bracing that has no plates showing but has cutbacks for the bracing element. As of Right now, they need to go to each bracing individually and use the “disable the creation of gusset plates…” button at each end of the bracing.
An addition to the 'Gusset Type' of "None" or "No Gusset" would be a better solution. Unlike the option "Without connection plates" this would still allow the user to manipulate the Offset and edge distance, etc.. as if the plate existed even if no plates are showing which is what Black & Veatch are looking for.

Please refer attached snap, it seems that ProStructures gets installed on MS V8i but unable to launch the same.
when using Printing in Background (Batchplot) with Printorganizer, even with correct installed Objectenabler and added comemnts in Prostuctures.cfg used this modified prostructures.cfg that has the console line as
follows: %if !defined (_CONSOLEAPP) %if defined (_IMODELCOMPOSER)
plotting in batchplot with printorganizer throws an error. According to Dennis Allely thats an outstanding issue with the OE for Microstation.
Priorty Account issue - Byggnadstekniska
in the flyout for Plates the list of plate descriptions is missing. (Version 8.11.5.99 12.1.2012 and Version 8.11.4.57)
Checking the devtrack database there are 17 issues related to the object enabler. Thouhg this report is done for company Byggnadstekniska, it is a Problem all our users have. Most of the companies and their sub contractors need to view ProSteel dgn's in pure Microstation.
We urgently need an officially released Object Enabler downloadable on Bentley Select ProSteel - free Updates/Utilities.
Using the preview in Detail center results in the creation of a shared cell each time. This way the dgn is getting bigger and bigger. The user could compress the file, but he can't get rid of all shared cells.
This should not happen at all and in case the shared cell is necessary for the preview then it should be recreated or older cells from the previews should be removed automatically.
This is also a performance issue. The last project from the user contained 20MB of useless shared cells.

If we try to import any file format from Project wise data source then it always shows offset of one file format. E.g. if we select .std file format then applications searches for .psb file with same name.
Using PSB format for import export a lot of group data gets lost. See attachments with original file, psb and new file. Instead of 372 groups the new file contains only of 301 groups.

Build No: 08.11.10.13
Platform / OS: MS 08.11.09.287 / Win 7 32 bit
Steps to reproduce:
1) Create new dgn using any seed file.
2) Create any Concrete and steel elements
3) Go to part families and load the default part families from template or create new part family with different color assignment.
Assign the part family to the concrete / steel elements, here it can be noticed that, color of elements is not changed as per the part family assignment.
this issue is happening in S5 regardless of the units.
1-create a new dgn using "ProSteel V8i Metric.dgn"
2-notice all PS levels are listed in MS level manager
3-exit dialogbox
4-invoke PS shape dialogbox
5-notice PS levels are not listed in the level dropdown list
6-exit dialogbox
7-goto ProSteel_Option>Configuration / Isometric Views>Levels
8-rename PS_WORKFRAME to WORKFRAME
9-exit dialogbox
10-go to a different dgn and then return to this one
11-invike PS shape dialogbox
12-notice WORKFRAME level is available in the level dropdownlist
if you start initially with a seed file that was saved including all PS levels such as "PS-S5-US-CDN_Met.dgn" then all the level are listed / available in the dropdown list and you will not notice the problem.
prosteel creates the configurate levels during opening of dgn.
additional files or videos are needed when follow above procedure to duplicate this issue.

PS build: Prostructures for Microstation 08.11.10.14
Bentley View S1
Test dgn: ConcTest_iModel.dgn.i.dgn
Concrete Elements_ss5.dgn.i.dgn
Concrete.dgn.i.dgn

Testing Observations:
As discussed with Johannes, this issue is valid when Prostructures for Microstation ss5 is installed and i-model.dgn containing rebar/concrete elements is opened with Bentley view.
This issue is related with COE files that full installer of Prostructures ss5 updates in RealDWG 2010 and 2012 folders or ….config/appl folder.
a) ConcTest_iModel.dgn.i.dgn
When opened this i-model with Bentley view, I got the same results as Johannes.
Pad footing is missing.
Reinforcement of pad footing is displaced.
b) Concrete Elements_ss5.dgn.i.dgn
Pad footing rebar is different than its provided in original model – I have provided bottom rebar in orginial model; in i-model it is shifted to top.
Slab and beam elevation is changed.
Panel dimensions are differenent than its provided in original model.
Staircase upper flight is missing.
c) Concrete.dgn.i.dgn
Here in Original model I have created one pad footing and coulmn then copied it to multiple locations.
In i-model opened with Bentley view only one Pad footing and column is displayed which I have created at first instance.
Primary Conculsions:
• Modifications of Concrete / Rebar elements in any form like moving, copying, changing the dimensions through ps_properties are not supported by i-model.dgn
• I observed that Any element that I have copied / moved or edited through ps_properties are not displayed correctly in i-model.
• Please refer the attachements supporting my observations.

1. Open ProStructures for MicroStation and login to PW data source.
2. In open file dialog select any ProStructures dgn file and open it with option 'Open as read only' using check box.
Here ProStructures session will result in not ustn.exe not-responding more than 40 minutes.
Also if we check out any PSMS file and try to open the same from context menu, double click or open through application is not possible.
But if already PSMS session is running then open any checked out file or read only file then we will not find this issue.

Copying groups a couple of times up from the fourth group there are additional senseless lines in shapes and plates. Comparing the parts they are not detected as equal anymore. Neither rebuild nor check dgn at load are helpful. The problem is that the sample here is a very simple group. Such problem goes undetected in a model with more complicated groups. The user said positioning is most time consuming because of such problems and the time spent for remodeling.
This is similar to issue 684 there the same problem occured by creating shapes.

For partlist or ERP data there is separate check box for ProjectWise integration as 'Export to ProjectWise'. When running ProStructures session with non-integrated mode then that check box should be disabled. OR when check box is checked in non-integrated mode and if we hit to create or export then PW login dialog should appear.
It will be better if we implement the second fix i.e. asking user to login to data base.
Currently if that check box is checked then it is not possible to create reports.
The boolean addition of a plate is not displayed. The plate was alright for the time it was done. The dgn was later used again and then the plate wasn't displayed correctly. That makes the program most unreliable. I am going to suggest to the user that boolean features should not be used until this is fixed. It is impossible to check every single part in big models. Such problems lead to loss of material and time.

Concrete objects are not included in the .psb processing and need to be include to support conversion from .dgn to .dwg.
This is fairly important problem.
We have a strange problem in that in the latest S5 release we can not change the properties of the objects in the model like:
The was achievable in S4.
Basically the overrides on the objects (Color, Linetype and Weight) will allow us to change them, but they do not obey this display in the model or print like this.
The reason this is a problem is that the team is applying the Color & Weight in the model. And then referencing in the saved views of the models into drawings.
In the new release no matter what we do we can not adjust the display to suit. Hence all our drawings display as weight of zero.

Subject: ProSteel For Bentley
Swain,
We have installed the latest copy of Prosteel – 8.11.05.43 - here at Process Consult.
The current issue we are having is the scaling of objects from previous versions.
If we open a drawing that was produced in the previous version the PS objects appear in the right place but are not selectable.
A mdl fix range fixes the non selectable Prosteel objects, however it scales all PS objects up 1000 times (a 352 beam is now 352 000mm) and a few objects disappear.
The PS object are out in space so its scaling them from the original origin in V8i.
If we again open the same drawing in a previous version of PS the objects that previously disappeared in the .43 version show up in the correct spot and the previously scaled object are missing.
Again a MDL fix range fixes this and all PS objects now show where they should be at the correct scale, but once we save the drawing the objects are no longer visible in V8i.

We have tried the obvious things like units, seed files, but have failed to find out what is setting the scale units in PS in the drawing.
At present our units are set at 10000:1 m in all our seed files, the default, I am led to believe.
Can you shed some light on this, when are you going to be in Brisbane again!

I have not found a working procedure to batch print drawings in PS for MS. First of all it´s not possible to place a detail in the layout tab, it has to be placed in modelspace.
However it is possible to make a print organizer job that prints from a fence in model space.
The problem is that the geometry is missing in the print. Text and dimensions are printed but not the actual geometry of the steel.
In PSMS SS4 read me web page Version number reads as PSMS SS4 08.11."05".XX but our PSMS version numbers use to be 08.11."04".XX
It is also confusing we released PSMS SS1 V 08.11."05".XX and next release will be lower numbered (??) 08.11."04".XX.

when using detail express on Microstation both in Imperial and Metric views are not being processed, the previews are created, however the view detail blocks/dgn are not created and in turn the 2D view drawings are not created.
I believe the same is happening on the AutoCAD version.

I noticed on the ‘Extended Stairs’ , the ‘Stairs’ tab when editing the width of the first run of stairs (La) with the Run selected (NS) set to 1, if the value is changed here then all the flights of stairs are affected but only the stringers for the first run adjust. (Image 1 the ‘La’ was changed from 3‘-0” to 4’-0”)
I believe this to be a bug. It would be more appropriate if only the stairs of the first level were affected seeing as each level has its own individual control for this value. (See image 2) ‘NS’ indicates the Stair run (level).
also, if blocks are used for the steps they do not stretch at all on any level when resized (see image 3). Blocks for steps do stretch in the standard staircase however and the blocks used in the extended stair are the same ones used for the standard staircase

A tool needs to be added to align beam members by ToS after being imported regardless of importation method used.. Right now all beams are generated and placed by center when imported. To change there insert point to ToS (Top of Steel) only members of the same size can be selected. Depending on the size of the model hundreds of different sized members may exist causing hours of cleanup time to occur. If several members are selected and changed to the ToS point at the same time all the members will move the distance required by the first member selected instead of moving the appropriate distance for their individual size.
A tool that allows users to select several different sized members at the same time and change their insertion point to ToS correctly for each is what is required.

I guess deletion of cope is extending the mebers.
If we say delete connection then connecting members having connection with copes will get extened beyond support member. If we try same thing with connection which is without cope then this case is less serious i.e. member will not extend beyond support member. The correct case would be member should restore its original position.
We can observe that connecting member extended beyond support member.

The positioning is set up so that each group gets the same number as the mainpart, in case of differences it goes on with .1, .2 and so on.
This is not working for one group. This group gets a position number that is already in use for a different group. And position number of main part and group is not matching. Group check couldn't find a problem. I could not find any obvious reason for that failure.

Shape Class I has not been inclued for stiffener connections. All Indian beams are under in ShapClass I and due to this issue it is not possible to make stiffener connection.
The member with assignments which are not in the allowed list also gets exported even when the check box is toggled on.
I.e. Primary steel Level can be Yellow or Green but the same level is used.
Problem we have is that when objects are created to ACIS and the question is asked “to keep the part on the original display”, it only retains the level.
It would be much better if it could retain Level, Color, Line Type and Line Weight.

The workframe is a laborious manual process that is very time consuming. We need a way to automate this procedure during the import process.
In CIS/2 import the current workframe simply places workframe views on the exterior of the structure and I believe these always starts at z=0 even if the model is not built at that location. If this could be enhanced it would provide a much better resource for the client.
Items Discussed:
1- It would be nice if the Workframe could be built by selecting points on the screen for each required axis (in the 3 directions X,Y & Z) line instead of having to type-in the exact distance between grid lines in the dialog box.
2- Look at ISM Enhancement for bringing any precreated work frames(Grid data) across.

Please refer attached model. Weld flag text value is too big as compared to object. I guess this might be a probable reason why Detail center express is crashing with imperial units or slow performance with imperial units.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open attached model.
2. Assign group ‘GR Pos ???_1 (W10x49)’ to 'US_SS4_GR_Steel_Column_Pos' or Standard' detail style.
3. Go to views tab and preview GR Pos ???_1 (W10x49).
Here it can be observed that weld flags text height set by default is too big.

The Elevation isn't displayed correctly in the Topview. Example (DGN and screenshots) attached.
While ISM import/Export. In merge status window values are displayed with 13 digits decimal places. See attached email communication.
One of the big changes for V8 was that apps no longer had to have any .mc code. The .ma still lives to hold the command and dialog resources, but the “code” section can be replaced with a “DllMdlApp” resource that ties the MDL task name to a DLL. A couple small changes related to the name for “main” and handling commands are also needed, but that’s all (besides getting formerly .mc code to compile with Visual C++).
All hook functions described in the MDL Programmer’s Guide can be native or MDL-based so that is not a concern.
The big benefit, of course, is that all of the app can be debugged through Visual Studio and one can forget all about the “MDL debugger” and the difficulties involved in debugging main () when the app is loaded as an INITAPP or DGNAPP.
.mc-based applications will not be supported in Bejing.
