    python product for microstation v8i?

    Why?  By the time that's gone through alpha and beta test, Bentley Systems will have retired MicroStation V8i.

    If you want to develop shiny new technology, then develop it for shiny not-so-new 64-bit MicroStation CONNECT!

    Customer Demand

    To my knowledge, in the twenty years I have been monitoring the Bentley Community Forums, there has been exactly one request for MicroStation Python. If you're looking for a new income stream, it is unlikely to come from MicroStation developers.  Good luck!

  • Hi Allan,

    I agree with Jon that now anything new should be aimed to CONNECT Edition, because V8 will be retired soon.

    But my primary note (or concern) is that your post looks more like phising activity than serious offer:

    • There is zero information about you in your profile (country, company...) and because it's your first post, there no "your acitvities log" exist.
    • There is no contact like e-mail, web page etc. so it's not clear what is a source of the project.
    • There is zero information about the product itself. Is it commercial, open source (which I would expect), is there any info page (e.g. on GitHub pages?).
    • The offer does not look well because of its format: it's not python but Python, it's not microstation v8i but MicroStation V8i and when I will be very strict (which as SW tester I am ;-) the beginning of the text is capitalized and the end is a period.

    It does not mean the information and your offer does not sound interesting, but it's form decreases it.

    With regards,

    This one looks likely.
