What's New Highlights

Components Center (Technical Preview)

Components Center is a cloud-based digital component library and catalog management service. It allows users to efficiently manage their digital component libraries while providing their designers with approved, proprietary components as well as manufacturer's content via subscriptions.  

Components Center users can create their own organization catalogs and populate them with content provided by Bentley or upload custom content to share among all their users.  

Both Raceway and Equipment can be downloaded from Components Center. The first time a raceway is routed or an equipment placed, the catalog will be downloaded to a local cache folder making it faster to insert the next time you route raceway or place equipment.

Enhanced Cable Routing

  • When routing cables the software will now consider the minimum bend radius of the cable. You can specify the minimum bend radius in the Options > Cable Data > Cable Types dialog.

  • After visualizing routed cables you can now update the calculated lengths to include the bend radius. 

Enhanced i-models

We now include raceway cable fill information in i-models so that the information can be reviewed in Navigator.

Flexible Equipment Level Assignment

You now have the ability to set the same level for equipment and equipment IDs in the Options > CAD Standards > Levels dialog.

Enhanced Raceway Labeling

You can now display the position of any raceway as defined in the grids of the Duct Bank or Raceway Router dialogs in Raceway ID labels.  i.e. "A1" would represent a position defined by column "A" and row "1" in the routing dialog. 

The following tools now allow you to include the "Position" attribute in the ID Settings:

  • Duct Bank Router
  • Raceway Router
  • Raceway IDs

New Place Equipment API

This new API allows you to specify an equipment name and position to automate the placement of equipment.

Consistent Project/WorkSet Creation

When creating a new project in the Project Manager the software will now create the DGN folder and place the rcmProject.xml file in this folder.
