This being my first post let me take a minute and introduce myself. My name is Douglas Morton and I am an Applications Engineer with Bentley Systems. My specific area of knowledge includes ProStructures. ProStructures is a 3D modeling package that allows the user to build 3D models in both Steel and Concrete. From here 2D drawings can be developed based off the generated 3D models. For more information please take a look <here>.
My first experience with ProSteel was about 7 years ago, prior to the Bentley acquisition. I have since had the pleasure of watching the program develop and grow into a more stable and comprehensive package.
Throughout these following posts I will be placing items related to the ProStructures software as a reference. Some may be how to's while other may point to upcoming events or news about about the product. It is my hope that some of the entries will be useful to you along the way.
Hi Douglas, I am with Hatch and we are in the middle of a little training system using proconcrete for a project based in our Winnipeg office. We have modelled Slabs, columns, Beams using Proconcrete and placed Rebar into these shapes. From these we were able to extract drawings and quantities. This is a great step forward for us and look forward to reading your blog on a regular basis as we move through into more complex rebar placements.
