Because of the intensive enhancements in ProStructures only the topics are listed here. Just follow the links to download more detailed documents.
Layered platforms will still continue to exist for the time being and there is no long term plan to drop the AutoCAD based layered product.
The PowerProStructures version has a form of the MicroStation Engine built in and so the environment for this and the MicroStation layered product should be fairly similar.
The release date for PowerProStructures will be shortly after the release of the layered products.
In the 2D Detail center, right clicking on one of the existing drawings and going to ‘Additional Functions’ will allow you to do a drawing verification of the selected 2D drawing.It will either return a “No Errors Detected” message or it will open a dialog window that lists the issues withthe drawing in question so that the user can fix them.
Some example lines sampled randomly from the file:• PS_APPS = $(MSDIR)Prg/• PS_WORKSPACE = $(_USTN_WORKSPACEROOT)ProStructures/• _USTN_FIRSTDGNAPPS > $(PS_APPS)PsUSTN.ma• MS_MDL > $(PS_APPS)• MS_MDLAPPS > $(PS_APPS)• MS_ADDINPATH > $(PS_APPS)• %if exists ($(PS_WORKSPACE)ps_language.cfg)% include $(PS_WORKSPACE)ps_language.cfg%endif• MS_SEEDFILES < $(PS_WORKSPACE)Seeds/
This is just a few of the customized lines generated to help enable control of ProStructures in a MicroStation environment.
Ps3d_ustn.cfg is generated by the installation.
It sets ProStructures main path and its workspace path through variables
MS_PROSTEEL3D and PS_WORKSPACE.
In ProSteel we have added hook anchors, bent and plate anchors, head bolts and dowels and studs.
These objects are parametric and can be inserted manually at a specific point or automatically at existing drill holes.
In the Dynamic View section where the display options of the seed file is mentioned, you need to add that the ProConcreteDrawingSeed.dgnlib contains several drawing seeds per type of Dynamic View including preset scale, display style and borders for automatic generation of sheet drawings
