Bentley Systems announces the general access of the ProStructures CONNECT Edition V10 structural detailing application, which now incorporates the capabilities of the ProSteel and ProConcrete applications. The release also features interoperability with Bentley's reality modeling capabilities, which will allow users to incorporate real-world conditions in their modeling throughout the design and construction lifecycle.
ProStructures CONNECT Edition V10 includes a streamlined user interface and includes these new capabilities:
- Functional Components - Easily create libraries of parametric structural shapes for both reinforced concrete and structural steel by applying user-defined variables and equations. Drag and drop existing components from a library that allows editing to specification to reduce time and eliminate errors associated with manual input. - ComponentCenter - Easily access structural components for use in design. Integrate with the ComponentCenter as a source of content for rebar couplers, terminators, and form savers. - Documentation Center - Automated production of high-quality drawings, including multi-discipline documentation sets, which are consistent across the entire project. Get a live view of the project in sheet orientation. As the design changes, so will the sheets. Create, publish, and share project deliverables across multiple disciplines. Quickly identify structural steel or reinforced concrete in the model by using any attribute such as member length or rebar size. - User Interface - New and improved user interface allows for ease of use, access to learning content, and project sharing. Ribbons help users to easily find commands with a minimum number of clicks. - Increased Performance - Access more addressable memory with 64-bit computing. Increase efficiencies in editing larger design models, and processing more complex Adobe PDF documents and iModels. - CONNECT Advisor - Receive personalized support and learning without leaving the product experience. Interact with various Bentley content in one location, eliminating the need to browse to various sources individually in a unified interface.
About ProStructures CONNECT Edition. ProStructures CONNECT Edition is a (BIM) software comprising of ProSteel and ProConcrete, it allows structural engineers, designers, detailers, and fabricators to efficiently create accurate 3D models for structural steel and reinforced concrete structures. ProStructures integrated tools provides fast creation of design drawings, fabrication details, and schedules, with automatic updates whenever the 3D model is changed.
