• Legal Reports Bug - bad bearings

    Using Open Roads Designer Connect Edition, Version 10.05.00.35, the reports PropertyDescriptionExtended, PropertyDescriptionExtended2, and PropertyDescriptionLong give bad bearings.  These reports show the wrong quadrant and angle.  The angle seems to be…

  • [ORD 2019 R2] Creating Text Favorite for Survey Point - Point Properties Not Available

    I wanted to test making a Text Favorite for our Survey TREE features. Our Attribute names are not the same as the delivered example and I did not see any way to change the field properties of an existing fevorite.

    So following the video, I attached a…

  • [OR Ss4] Survey Data Files - Single big file or separate daily files and Oddities that occur

    For a long time, the standard workflow here has been to combine all data files (in our case, TDS RAW files) into a single behemoth. This dates back to early software where preprocessing was required before bringing in an ICS file of the full Survey. When…

  • RE: [OR Ss4] Survey Data Files - Single big file or separate daily files and Oddities that occur

    In my experience the control points have always been in a separate file "Point List" from the Raw Data. Each Brand of Survey Software treats it slightly different, I can see trying to break out a large file to represent a daily file could wreck…

  • RE: How to restore configuration variables

    Hi Marcus,

    Thanks for the reply. I tried with your suggestion but it did not work for me. Even I cleaned the registry files. 

    What I did, I copied configuration variables from other computer then resolved the issue. 

    Thanks

  • Question about Linear Stoke Tolerance - PowerGEOPAK (SS4) 08.11.09.904 -

    I'm pretty new to SS4 and have a problem with linear stroke tolerance.

    I currently have the tolerances set in config as follows:

    When I input a fieldbook, all tolerances work just fine.

    Problem is, if I either do a "Create Terrain Model from Graphic…

  • RE: Civil3d LandXML surface to Microstation Surface - Help

    Actually have a look inside an LandXML file out of c3d and youll understand what I mean. Breaklines are defined by an array of points instead of unique breaklines that define triangle edges, therefore they are "rebuilt" differently by different software…

  • RE: Civil3d LandXML surface to Microstation Surface - Help

    Hi,

    Is there any reason you can't just reference in the surface dwg into a new 3d dgn and merge to master?

    We have found that the problem with Civil3D LandXML lies in the fact that c3d does not export breakline data in its XMLs so we always have…

  • Bentley Learn Server - SLOW

    Does anyone else experience crazy wait times for the Learn Server to load just a list of tutorials? It's quite brutal to try to move through training when 75% of the time is spent waiting for a list to load. This is not an exaggeration. Total tutorial…

  • Merging files without losing survey data

    Is it possible to merge two .dgn files containing fieldbook data without loosing the features of point generated linear features (manage point list, insert point in linear feature, break linear feature... etc.) from the merged file?

    I changed the configuration…

  • RE: [IR Ss4] A Bentley Civil Users Guide to Using Map to Reference In or Convert ESRI Geo-database Files

    Bentley Map does support the File Geodatabase, through the Interoperability tools.  It uses a Connect & Query approach - connect to the database & query the features you want to see. It is not a file-based reference, you can either review or edit the feature…

  • RE: [ContextCapture]Use photo positioning data for adjustment? rigid registraion?

    You can use survey measurements from targets to adjust model after aerotriangulation. At first do a aerotriangulation and then add measured points as control points.
  • RE: Large shp file issues

    Have you exited the DGN file?  MicroStation cache's memory, so an Exit and re-initialization will return the system to the previous memory allocation.

    And remember that a Shapefile is made-up of more than one file.  You must keep all of the files (…

  • RE: Large shp file issues

    Cliff, if you used the suggested Interoperability Import process then you have effectively "copied" the feature instances from the SHP file into your design file. If the result contains more data than desired, then you can simply delete the geometries…

  • RE: Are .markupdb files visible in mobile Map?

    Cliff,

    You are correct. By design, the .markupdb files which contain the redline data are not visible to the Bentley Map Mobile app. These .markupdb files are intended for use in downstream workflows whereas users can reference attach or open them in…
