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.
This is the same situation here in much of the Australian market (sydney anyway)
OpenRoads Designer 2021 R1 (10.10) | Microstation CE Update 16.2 | ProjectWise CE 3.4
And a number of other things, hence the dominance of Revit in the UK, in a market that Bentley had sown up.
I was using Bentley View Connect edition before it was withdrawn, it was a natural progression for your clients to interact with a DGN deliverable taking account of the new included functionality, then as you say the viewer was pulled without explanation. To date I am constantly being asked to convert DGN's to DWG which is a waste of my time.
I say come on Bentley Bro's give us your take on this, I paying your organisation £1050 a year in subscription fee's, at least tell the users and our respective clients your plans for the viewer. If you have plans it would be great to be able to comment on them.
The reintroduction of Bentley View CONNECT Edition is forthcoming, anticipated to be early in the fourth quarter of this year. As has been the case with previous generations of Bentley View, it is a derivative of the MicroStation codebase and thus will support CONNECT Edition capabilities as expected (fpr example, Display Rules and the latest version of RealDWG). Users who would like to install Bentley View V8i can do so now and as soon as Bentley View CONNECT Edition is available, it will be posted as a free download on the MicroStation product page on Bentley.com.
