Moving to MicroStation CONNECT - HANDS-ON Beginner/Intermediate - Mike Lazear

MicroStation CONNECT is the successor to MicroStation V8i and there is much more to it than just a new ribbon interface and cloud connection. We will be taking a look at how MicroStation CONNECT differs from MicroStation V8i and how much they are alike. Come try out some of the new features of CONNECT and hear about the best ways to transition from V8i to CONNECT. Whether you are ready to move to CONNECT tomorrow or in a year or two, you will want to understand the direction Bentley is going with their core platform.
Prerequisite: MicroStation V8i Experience.

Intro to MicroStation CONNECT 3D - HANDS-ON Intermediate/Advanced - Tom Lazear

This MicroStation class is for users that wish to develop an understanding of the 3D capabilities of MicroStation CONNECT. This class will give an introduction to navigating/working in a 3D design file, and creating/editing 3D curves, solids, and surfaces in MicroStation. In addition, users will be introduced to Dynamic Views to creating 2D drawings. Prerequisite: Need to have Microstation experience.

AECOsim Building Designer for Owners - Managing Building Spaces and Assets - HANDS-ON Beginner - Mark Enos

AECOsim Building Designer is a multidisciplinary Building Information Modeling (BIM) software, that has features and functionality to manage building Spaces and Assets beyond Design and Construction into Operations.  Building types such as Retail, Office, Transit and Transportation Buildings, or multiple building “mega-projects” such as an Airport will be explored.  Owners can even leverage existing facilities data by promoting legacy 2D CAD graphics to intelligent building spaces and assets for Space Planning without modeling the entire facility in 3D.

This hands-on session will cover the tools to Create, Manage, Report, Track, and import data on Spaces, Furniture, Fixtures, and Equipment (FF&E) across multiple building Models, along with:

  • Interoperability: RealDWG, .SKP, Autodesk Revit® i-models, manufacturers RFA content, and many other file types.
  • Industry Standards: IFCs, supports COBie to Export (FM Handover) in the Bentley’s delivered “COBie Template Dataset”, and MasterFormat, OmniClass, and UniFormat classifications.
  • Linking external documents such as equipment data for warranty and maintenance can be added to the BIM objects.
  • Create graphical color-coded thematic maps and displays in both models and drawings and publish to 3D PDF with BIM properties.
Advanced RAM Structural System - HANDS-ON Intermediate/Advanced - Allen Adams

Increasingly, today’s buildings are becoming more elaborate, while the building code requirements are becoming more complex. In this session attendees will learn how to model more complicated geometries and how to utilize a range of products such as steel joists and cellular and castellated beams for roof and floor framing, and buckling restrained braces and SidePlate in lateral frames. Attendees will obtain a greater understanding of how engineering principles and requirements are implemented. An emphasis will be placed on obtaining designs that conform to the material specifications and building code requirements for seismic and wind design. This course is recommended for Structural and Civil engineers involved in the design of buildings. Attendance at Intro class or experience and basic familiarity with the RAM Structural System assumed.

ContextCapture: Using the Reality Model in a Design Environment - HANDS-ON Beginner - Mike Barkasi
