iModel Connector for ProStructures:iModel can be published to iModelHub in U5.2. Following workflows are currently supported.
iTwin Synchronizer enables you to sync design changes from desktop design application with an iTwin in the cloud. Connectors transform engineering data from native design application into a schema. Design changes are recorded in a timeline of change providing an audit trail of who changed what when. Team members and project stakeholders can view, validate, and analyze the data stored in the iTwin from any location with a standard web browser.
Proxy iTwin Synchronizer workflow is possible in U5.2. The prerequisites are as follows:
C:\Program Files\Bentley\ProStructures CONNECT Edition\ProStructures\ProStructuresBridge.dll
C:\Program Files\Bentley\ProStructures CONNECT Edition\ProStructures\imodelbridgeaffinity.dll
InstantON Service : InstantON is a iTwin Service where ProjectWise Datasource Connection is created using URL. iModels can be published to iModelHub without Product OR ProjectWise client.
Text styles from dgnlib can be used for placing Shape label.
Revision Manager: Selected part in Revision manager now gets highlighted in 3D model.
Substation Tools improvements
Great Britain dataset has been updated for detail center templates and detail styles.
Parametric cells can be created with MS solids with Rebar and saved in cell library. This cell library can be attached to any other dgn and parametric cell can be placed. After placing, cell can be dropped and further operations can be performed like rebar modification, Bar marking, Drawing generation, IFC export, etc.
The Match and Extend tool automates the Single Rebar Distribution placement. The tool is used for placing additional rebars like corner rebar, wall , slab , dowels etc.
Fudge rebar tool offers the facility to offset the overlapped 2D rebar by required distance in 2D drawing.
Now, Polycuts can be added in Single Rebar Distribution and Irregular dispatch reinforcement.
Item Types properties can be seen in tool tip. By customizing INI file, Item Type properties can be displayed now in Element tooltip. In below image, item property i.e., User mark for rebar element is displaying in tooltip.
Added support for showing rebar Free Leg Dimensions in brackets in Bar Bending Schedule.
Bar Spacing and Bar Zone is now exported to ARMA. In ARMA Export tool, two new Remarks tabs are added using which one can customize their ARMA export
