Over the years Bentley has developed several custom solution modules for ProSteel 3D. These modules cater to specific manufacturing industries and dramatically increase productivity for modeling and detailing work.
The custom modules utilize the powerful open-architecture offered by ProSteel 3D. These are not sold off-the-box, rather offered as custom solutions. This is because users frequently request Bentley to further customize these modules to cater to specific workflow of their companies.
Currently available custom solution modules include TowerPro 3D for Tower industry, JacketPro 3D for offshore platforms, and PVGen Pro 3D for pressure vessels. Bentley also offers MBS Extension Toolkit for users of MBS metal building software.
Brief description of these modules are given below:
TowerPro 3D is a multi-legged lattice tower configurator and powerful model generator that allows you to build a tower structire, including all the connections - in minutes!!
For more details please refer to the following announcement in Bentley Structural Analysis and Design forum:
TowerPro 3D - Tower solution in ProSteel 3D
JACKET Pro 3D is a collection of applications that convert ProSteel 3D into a dedicated software tool for companies involved in the design, construction and fabrication of off-shore structures.

PVGen Pro 3D is an integrated software solution aimed at the engineering and manufacturing of Pressure Vessels.
This unique module for ProSteel 3D generates 2D drawings, nozzle schedules, BOM and CNC data from a 3D model of a pressure vessel designed with Compress.
PVGen Pro 3D is ideal for engineering consultants and fabrication shops.

MBS Extension Toolkit module for ProSteel 3D allows users to read the MBS project data files and generate an equivalent intelligent model in ProSteel 3D.
Once the 3D model is created, the users can use the full power of ProSteel 3D to manipulate and enhance the 3D model in order to complete the project at hand.
