2011 BE Conference Summary

We just returned from the conference and here is a quick look ahead at the many exciting things happening with Bentley Software.

MicroStation: Hyper models were demonstrated which integrate 3D and 2D drawings. Think 3D model with 2D detail drawings/sections associated with design elements. Apparently a lot of R&D has been taking place developing iPad applications as well. See our Youtube link to the keynote demonstration.  click here

Civil Applications: Significant changes to the civil platform are coming late this year. The enhancements present a familiar feel to InRoads users but the structure of the software is dramatically changing. The civil applications are being integrated into the MicroStation environment providing  in-place editing, retention of design intent, dynamic editing/updating and content sensitive workflows.

Hot Tip: AccuDraw and more importantly Civil AccuDraw play considerable roles in future software. Now is a great time to start learning and using these productivity boosting tools.

The enhancements are to numerous to cover in detail here. Contact us if you would like additional information on these exciting changes.
