MicroStation Based 3D Mechanical Equipment Modeling


PlantSpace Equipment


Bentley PlantSpace Design Series provides a full range of intelligent 3D modeling applications for the engineering and design process of process plants and discrete manufacturing. Built on top of MicroStation and MicroStation TriForma, you have a full suite of tools to produce documentation required to assist in the engineering, construction, and maintenance of the plant.

Design Series provides you with a consistent interface between design modules that operates without live links to a database. JSpace, the object-orientated technology, is the basis on which the Bentley PlantSpace family of application software is built.

Using Design Series, you can also

  • Generate deliverables from an object model, such as Isometrics, material take-off lists, and bills of materials.
  • Produce Orthographic drawings using the TriForma Drawing Extraction Manager.
  • Use TriForma interference detection using the Detection module of the Bentley Interference Manager.
  • Generate input files for stress analysis programs.

Design Series uses component-based storage of data from your project database through the Model Control System (MCS).
