Bentley View V8 and Bentley View Connect Edition

Bentley View V8:-

I have suggested to a client that he installs Bentley View V8 edition on his machine ( in the absence of a Connect version ), he has asked me if Bentley has a tutorial for this, do we have a PDF or video tutorial?

Bentley View Connect Edition:-

Firstly, can anyone advise when the new version will be available and secondly will it have similar measuring and extended viewing capabilities i.e. will my client be able to view Display Rules etc.

  • Can anyone advise when the new version [of Bentley View] will be available?

    You might be astonished to learn that Bentley View CONNECT Edition was introduced a couple of years ago.  However, Bentley Systems subsequently, within months, pulled that product with no explanation.

    Bentley Systems product strategy is not clear.  They haven't explained why there is no longer a Bentley View CONNECT Edition, nor have they suggested an alternative.  It's one of the mysteries of Bentley Systems marketing: they like to keep their cards close to their chest.  Perhaps they are waiting for all the bugs to be fixed in MicroStation CONNECT?
