Bentley software design provides drawings from 3d models

Software company Bentley Systems has put together a package which produces technical drawings from an architectural 3d model and adds in all relevant data and specifications.

 The Bentley OpenPlant Orthographis Manager Vi8 is aimed at engineers, architects and construction and procurement companies and is intended to cut time spent in making drawings and diagrams as well as eradcating errors and omissions.

 Ken Adamson, vice president, said, “We address the ongoing need in many industry sectors to create and deliver drawings for construction, operations and maintenance, and more.

 “The new software automates this typically labour-intensive production process, enhancing the quality and accelerating the delivery of these documents to help keep projects on schedule.”
