Bentley OpenPlant Modeler V8i

Work remotely or connected with the markets most productive and easy-to-use 3D plant design and modeling software

Owner-operators as well as engineering design firms will see the benefits of using this easy-to-use, interoperable plant design software. Bentley OpenPlant Modeler V8i is the first 3D CAD plant modeling software to use ISO 15926 as an instrinsic data model as specified by the iRING user community. Like all OpenPlant products, OpenPlant Modeler V8i incorporates the ongoing and ever-advancing capabilities of MicroStation V8i, the market-leading platform for plant creation and every infrastructure discipline. OpenPlant Modeler V8i alsonatively supports workflows combining all pertinent plant software standards, including DGN, RealDWG, point clouds, and PDF.

Most Productive and Easy-to-Learn Tool 
OpenPlant Modeler V8i is a specification-driven modeling system that matches how a plant designer works. Using the highly intuitive MicroStation V8i user interface, already familiar to many users, the rapid creation of 3D models including piping, HVAC, and electrical components is made easy. With the assistance of MicroStation features such as AccuDraw and AccuSnap, the placement of components requires a few simple clicks of the mouse.

Easy Reuse of Corporate Standards 
Existing designs, models, and associated data, as well as catalogs and specifications from PDS, AutoPLANT, and PlantSpace, can be easily reused, enabling faster project start up and continuity of plant design.

Piping Specification from Multiple Formats
To enforce compliance, piping specifications will limit the components that can be placed to what is in the specification. Running Specification Checktools validates that all components in a line meet the piping spec and will reduce checking time required, saving you time and money on your plant design projects.

Piping Plus
Model integrated HVAC and structural components alongside piping in single integrated project model.

Open, No Proprietary Lock-In
Existing PDS designs and other third-party models can be reviewed and augmented to produce ISO 15926 output that enables future data reuse.

Freedom of Work Location
ProjectWise V8i Managed Workspace provides a centrally administered workspace, freeing the designer from having to be connected at all times and allowing work to be performed in a disconnected mode. All updates to design session and workspace are transferred upon connection.

Model Component Browser and Pipeline Manager
The Model Component Browser provides designers complete insight into the plant design project to see which components are available to check out. Due to the dynamic check-in and check-out process, working with OpenPlant ModelServer V8iallows the designer to add or subtract components from the working session as required. This allows the user to work on an individual line, a complete system, or the whole project.

OpenPlant ModelServer V8i, which executes on top of ProjectWise V8i, allows the designer to be located anywhere in the world for a truly global project execution.

Modern Review and Publishing Functionality
The user can use the latest MicroStation V8i capabilities such as Dynamic Views to make working in large models much easier. Plotting is available to Adobe PDF (2D and 3D) and many other formats.

Designers can quickly rectify mistakes in their design session by using the MicroStation V8i UNDO command, with no fear of corrupting their plant design or database records.

Breakthrough Value
With Bentley’s Designer for Piping Passport Subscription (OpenPlant), individual piping designers gain access to Bentley OpenPlant Modeler V8i, Bentley OpenPlant Isometrics Manager V8i, ProSteel Modeler, ProjectWise Passport, and ProjectWise Clash Resolution Visa – plus complete virtual training – for the single annual fee that is typically less than the Unix-era maintenance fees of other vendors’ proprietary piping design systems .

Advantages

01

Most Productive and Easy-to-Learn Tool

OpenPlant Modeler V8i is a specification-driven process plant design modeling system that matches how a plant designer works. Designers can rapidly and easily create 3D models using the highly intuitive MicroStation V8i task-based user interface, making it the most productive and easy-to-learn industrial-strength plant design environment ever introduced.

02

Easy Reuse of Corporate Standards

Existing designs, models, and associated data, as well as catalogs and specifications from PDS, AutoPLANT, and PlantSpace, can be easily reused, enabling faster project start-ups and continuity of design.

03

Open, No Proprietary Lock-In

Existing PDS plant designs can be reviewed and augmented, through ISO 15926 protocols or i-models, to escape proprietary lock-in.

04

Not Just Piping

OpenPlant Modeler isn't only the premier solution for piping design. Electrical and HVAC design components are supported within the standard interface, providing for the ability to view plants in a single integrated project model.

05

Auto Routing Placement Features
