The design data in Bentley Raceway and Cable Management (BRCM) can be pushed into an iModel in iModelHub so that the iTwin Services such as Design Review can be utilized. The iTwin Synchronizer is used to publish the iModels created to iModelHub.
This article will describe the process of pushing the design data into the iModelHub so that iTwin Services such as Design Review can be used. The article will explain the process of creating an iModel from Bentley Raceway and Cable Management and push the design data in the iModel to the iModelHub by using the ITwin Synchronizer application. When the iModel is pushed into the iModelHub the iTwin Services such as Design Review can be used.iTwin Synchronizer:The iTwin Synchronizer is a design collaboration tool that enables you to synchronize the design changes from your desktop design tool with the iTwin in the cloud. The iTwin Synchronizer leverages the capabilities of iModels on the iModelHub which makes the process of reviewing and analyzing the design data simpler.
Project collaboration between team members who are spread out geographically or in different teams and from different disciplines, using varied design applications, is made possible by the iTwin Synchronizer. Team members can synchronize their design changes from a design file to an iModel on the iModelHub using iTwin Synchronizer. This iModel is then available for review to all team members.
The iModel created in Bentley Raceway and Cable Management can be pushed to the iModelHub by using iTwin synchronizer and the design data can be reviewed, analyzed and validated by team members and project stakeholders from data stored in iTwin from a web browser. The iTwin Synchronizer works with Bentley and Non-Bentley applications. Note: iTwin Synchronizer is a separate application that needs to be installed.
1.Open the Bentley Cloud Services homepage, sign-in with the required credentials and click on Projects tab.2.In the projects tab , click on Register a Project to register the project to use the iModel Manager service.3.Provide the necessary details in the fields and click on Register to create a project. 4.Click on the created project and scroll down and go to iModel Manager.5.In the iModelHub webpage that opens, click on Create iModel. 6.In the Create iModel dialog that opens, provide a suitable name and description to the iModel. This will house the iModel which will be published from BRCM.7. Launch BRCM CONNECT and open any drawing file to publish the iModel for that file. For instance, Equipment.dgn file is opened for publishing iModel. Go to File>>Publish i-model.8.In the Publish i-model dialog that opens , check Create a single package and click on Publish to create the i.dgn file ( iModel file ) for the Equipment.dgn file.9. The iModel will be created at the default location of the drawing file.10. Install and open iTwin Synchronizer application. Note: iTwin Synchronizer can be downloaded from this link. It can be seen that the created project is listed in the drop-down menu.11. A job definition needs to be created with the iTwin Synchronizer. Select the created project from the drop-down menu and Click on New to create a job definition.12.The New Synchronization page opens. Provide a suitable name to the synchronization and from the drop-down menu ,select the iModel in the iModelHub to which the synchronization will be mapped. Provide the file path which contains the iModel created from BRCM to be pushed into the iModelHub. Note: The iModel created from BRCM needs to be pushed into the iModelHub rather than directly pushing the DGN file if you wish to get a complete EC schema for the equipment and raceway properties available for iTwin Services. Click on Add to add files required to be synchronized. Select the iModel file created in Bentley Raceway and Cable Management . 13. The list of files selected is displayed under the Files section and the files can be unmapped using the Unmap button. Click Next to proceed to associate the iModel Bridges.
14.After clicking Next , the iTwin Synchronizer will check for required bridges and enable them. Click Save to save the new synchronization.15. The newly created Synchronization is listed along with information about the iModel and the files associated with it. The changes can be synchronized , edited and deleted using the Synchronize , Edit and Delete buttons.16.Click on Synchronize to push the iModel into the iModelHub and to view the changes.17. A change comment can be provided. Check ‘Create Named Version’ and provide a suitable name to the named version of the iModel. Click on Synchronize to sync the iModel or in other words push the created iModel to iModelHub.18.After the iModel is synchronized , click on Go to iModel to view the changes.19. The CONNECT web portal will be opened in a web browser displaying the named version of the iModel. Click on View to view the complete iModel.20. The created named version will be displayed. Click on the ‘Changes’ tab to view the changes done to the model. Click on the named version ‘view2’ to view the complete iModel in iModelHub.21.After the iModel gets pushed into the iModelHub, the saved views and 3D model views will be available for the iModel. Click on Enter iModel to see the published iModel.22.The complete 3D model of the published iModel will be visible. At the bottom right corner, in the Scope menu select the option Top Assembly to view the properties of the published iModel.23.Select Element selection option and select any part of the published iModel to view the detailed properties of the selected part. For instance, the properties of Cable Tray, Conduit, and Equipment are selected and are displayed. a)Cable Tray:b) Conduits:c) Equipment:
