When i.dgn file is opened in navigator V8i and run for Clash check operation, the program does not respond and comes up with crash. Whereas the same is not happening in MicroStation.
this issue is coming due to missing ECSchemas in navigator V8i. While running Clash check operation in navigator, it looks for the properties and when it doesn't get any properties, program goes to unresponsive state and ultimately go crash. So to get rid of this issue, the ECSchemas need to be copied from ProStructures CONNECT Edition directory to Navigator V8i directory. Please follow the below steps to get rid of this.
1. Go to ProStructures Directory at "C:\Program Files\Bentley\ProStructures CONNECT Edition\ECSchemas\Dgn\" and copy the following Schemas
a. BaseElementSchema.01.00.ecschema.xml b. DgnCustomAttributes.01.00.ecschema.xml c. DgnElementSchema.01.00.ecschema.xml d. ExtendedElementSchema.01.00.ecschema.xml
2. The Bentley Navigator V8i looks for ECSchema files in the directories listed in the MS_ECFRAMEWORK_SCHEMAS configuration variable.
The default setting is:
which evaluates to the following directories:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Bentley\Navigator V8i\Navigator\schemas\
3. Paste all the schema files copied from proStructures directory to the 2nd path ( C:\ProgramData\Bentley\Navigaor V8i\WorkSpace\ECSchemas\ProStructures\ )
Please note that in this path, you need to create the folders (ECSchemas and ProStructures) manually and then paste all those Schemas.
4. After keeping all those files, launch Navigator and do the clash check. The operation will run smoothly.
