New Release - WaterGEMS, WaterCAD, HAMMER CONNECT Edition

We're happy to announce the CONNECT Edition release of our water distribution modeling products. There are a lot of new features we think you'll find useful. Some of these include:

  • Access tools quickly through a modernized ribbon-based user interface with built-in search to find commands more easily, consistent with MicroStation CONNECT Edition and Microsoft products.

  • Create and manage customized reports that automatically combine graphs, data tables, color-coded and annotated plan views, and more into a single report. 

  • Run historical simulations using actual operation of pump and valve controls based on SCADA system records.

  • Additional capability to model shut downs and power outages in SCADAConnect Simulator.

  • Create AVI videos of your model runs.

  • Include service laterals, for automatic customer load assignment during hydraulic analysis.

  • Collaborate on water system design and operation as a team using Bentley CONNECT Cloud Services.

We will be presenting a "What's new" webinar during the week of November 7, 2016. Go to the link below to sign up for the webinar.

A more comprehensive article on all the new features and changes will be available soon and an announcement will be posted in this Blog.

We are also updating our training materials and will be offering some training using the latest release in the upcoming months.

You can download the latest release by going to the CONNECTION Center at and scrolling down to the Download section.

For SELECT and ELS subscribers, there is no charge to update to the latest version. 

We hope that these new enhancements help you be more successful in your hydraulic modeling!
