Reading a cable routing report to understand the paths that each cable takes can be time consuming as it often requires cross referencing the raceway IDs in the report with models. Fortunately, in Bentley Raceway and Cable Management Update 5 , there is a new feature to generate Isometric Cable Report that embeds an isometric image of each cable path through raceway system. This article explains how to generate Isometric Cable Routing Report.
1. Launch the application and open Routing DGN file. Note: Open an already routed DGN file. For detailed steps to perform automatic routing refer to this link. 2.Go to the Output tab and click on the Output Manager.3.In the Output Manager , Select the Detail_Cable_Route_List_IV report and click on Select Resources to lock the resources.4.In the Collaboration Manager dialog, right click and select all the resources and click on request lock to lock the resources. Click OK to return to the Output Manager.5.The locked resources get populated in the Output Manager. Click on Export Cable Routing Path Images to export the Isometric images of the cable routing path.Note-After the export of the isometric images is completed, the images are saved on the location pointed to by the configuration variable BRCM_IMAGE_PATH. By default, the images are saved in the following location- C:\ProgramData\Bentley\BRCM CONNECT Edition\Configuration\Workspaces\BRCM Imperial Example\Worksets\BRCM_PLANT_US_COMP\Standards\BRCM\Reports\Images. It can be changed from the configuration variables settings.6.Select Detail_Cable_Route_List_IV and Click on Preview. The report can also be exported to an excel file (.xlsx). The cable report will be displayed with the isometric cable route path images.
