Bentley AutoPlant Raceways V8i

Model Electrical System Cable Trays and Conduits in a 3D Environment

 

AutoPLANT Raceways


Product Overview
AutoPLANT Raceways V8i combines speed and power into an intuitive, graphical interface that makes the process of creating models easier than ever. Raceways has been designed to make your job easier by reducing drawing time and automating traditionally time-intensive tasks.

Project managers will appreciate the efficiency with which project data is handled, and how easy it is to share data between the entire suite of Bentley AutoPLANT products. Component and drawing control data is dynamically linked to an external project database. The database information can be used to generate reports, or to globally manipulate and revise the descriptive component data.

Advantages

Integration with other AutoPLANT applications

AutoPLANT Raceways uses the same project structure as Bentley's AutoPLANT P&ID, AutoPLANT Piping, AutoPLANT Structural and AutoPLANT Isometrics applications with both 2D and 3D data in the same database. If other application sets are used, the 3D user will see a full list of line numbers to select from when placing raceways. Line numbers can be entered into the database using Data Manager. If the user is only responsible for the detailed design phase of a project, Data Manager and Datasheets can be used in conjunction with the 3D data.

3D modeling and design of cable trays and conduit

AutoPLANT Raceways enables you to quickly layout and design spec-driven 3D cable tray and conduit with advanced routing and editing features. The program architecture takes advantage of the latest AutoCAD technology to produce intelligent, three dimensional production models under demanding deadline constraints.

Spec-Driven Design

AutoPLANT Raceways provides sample database catalogs of tens of thousands of components from which manufacturer-specific specifications may be produced. The Spec Generator program enables you to build and customize the database specifications used with particular projects or clients. Specifications can also be edited or modified to suit unique requirements, and any number of specifications can be created. These specifications are available in imperial, metric, and/or mixed-metric versions.

Automated orthographic drawing creation

AutoPLANT Raceways has utilities to automate creation of 2D orthographic drawings. These drawings are  referenced from the model so any changes to the model will update the orthographic drawings. AutoPLANT Raceways has tools for annotating elements with information pulled from the database like coordinates and elevations.

Flexible working modes

The V8i (SELECTseries 3) Edition introduces a new Briefcase mode technology. This allows designers that do not need the work-sharing features of the project to work independently with less administration and setup. Using the same technology large projects can easily move models between projects or model disconnected from the project or restore individual project models from backup.

Extensible

AutoPLANT Raceways is an open and flexible application that can be adapted to the requirements of each of your projects.

Proven on all sizes of projects

The same powerful features used to successfully complete multi-discipline mega projects are available to jobs involving small teams of designers.

Intelligent components

AutoPLANT Raceways uses models are not merely drawings. As the model is created, component data is also maintained in an external project database. The component data can be edited at any time during a drawing session.
