Downloaded the CE version... seems a bit faster, which is good stuff.
Bentley View has the potential to reach a very wide audience... so I was a little disappointed to see the Clip Volume tool not being available. :-(
If the dgn has a DV then the DV's Clip volume is available. But, we need to realise that BV will be used as a 'swiss army knife' go-to tool to view all CAD formats. It opens a huge number of formats pretty well, but these days viewing 3d models is becoming increasingly common. If you accept this, than not having clipping tools to 'peel back' the 3d model to see what's inside is a critical got-to-have that any go-to tool will need to have.
The cut geometry etc is proxy graphics anyway that is volatile... should be compatible enough in read only mode? So near, yet... so far. Update 13?
The same goes for attaching Reference files. Mstn has already got all the functionality in place.
Hi Dominic and helgeh,
We are currently investigating the possibility of making the Clip Volume tools available in a Read-Only file in Bentley View CONNECT Edition. We will keep you and everyone posted.
Any news at all on these things yet?
I do not have anymore information to share at the moment on these items. I can assure you that we have received multiple requests now for the ability to do a clip volume in Bentley View and we are still working on seeing what we can implement, at the earliest, Update 14 of Bentley View CONNECT Edition.
Thanks for the update Dan, its good to see it seems to be progressing .
I hope this will come sooner. Because Naviswork freedom can create a box to view a volume. It's not so good if BV Connect falling behind with the development of a BIM viewer.
