Bentley Announces the V8 Generation of Structural for MicroStation TriForma

(January 04, 2002)
Bentley Systems, Incorporated today announced that the V8 Generation of Structural for MicroStation TriForma is now available.

Structural for MicroStation TriForma optimizes MicroStation TriForma for structural design and construction documentation. Using parametric and solid modeling tools, structural engineers can create models of buildings, plants and other structures that contain both geometric and attribute information.

Now with MicroStation V8 compatibility, there is a direct link between MicroStation TriForma and the electronic product catalog of Corus, a leading steel manufacturer. Any Corus steel product can be inserted directly into MicroStation TriForma DGN Models design environment once their catalog is downloaded from the Bentley SELECT Web site.

"In addition, VisualBasic programs are now delivered with Structural for MicroStation TriForma, such as programs for parametric handrails, corbels, trusses generated via spreadsheets, and more" comments Tom Anderson, Vice President of Product Marketing at Bentley. "As users have access to the source code of these VBA programs, they can customize them as necessary."

"Thanks to the advances made possible by the V8 Generation of Structural for MicroStation TriForma, full interoperability is no longer an aspiration," adds Lynne Taylor, CAD specialist at Whitby Bird. "Communication with DWG-based data and our supply chain is no longer a major issue now that geometry is seamlessly interchangeable."

Bentley Systems, Incorporated provides the most comprehensive portfolio of solutions and professional services to the leading infrastructure engineering organizations around the world, including the majority of the ENR Top 500 Design Firms.

Since 1984, architects, engineers, builders and owner/operators have relied on these focused industry solutions that build upon Bentley(R) MicroStation to help them effectively create, manage and publish engineering content critical to the profitable construction and management of infrastructure and facility assets.
