Bentley Announces the V8 Generation of MicroStation TriForma

EXTON, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 4, 2002--Bentley Systems, Incorporated today announced that the V8 Generation of the MicroStation® TriForma® Engineering Configuration is now available.

Now compatible with MicroStation V8, MicroStation TriForma provides the building and process manufacturing industries with a common modeling platform and consistent user interface for architectural and plant design.

This 3D modeling software provides a robust set of tools designed to address object management, modeling and drafting, visualization, interference review and drawing and report extraction, resulting in faster, better, more cost-effective projects.

MicroStation TriForma provides improved communication and coordination by laying the foundation for a suite of discipline-specific applications that address the needs of the many disciplines involved in a building or plant engineering project.

"The value of engineering content increases exponentially as the number of architects, engineers, builders and owner-operators using that content increases," said Buddy Cleveland, general manager of Bentley Software. "MicroStation V8 is the common basis for sharing of that content now, and all the new features of MicroStation V8, including design history and working with DWG files in native format, are now available in MicroStation TriForma."

"We use MicroStation TriForma as our standard for all architectural projects," said Jeff Larrick of Burt Hill Kosar Rittelmann. "We particularly like the advantages of the single project model; the ability to create a master repository of all building information and leverage this across our design process, from schematic design through facilities management, is a huge benefit for us." He continued, "Virtually constructing a building in the computer helps us resolve issues that we previously would not have encountered until we were in the field, under construction. Early resolution of these issues and their value has been tremendous for our clients and us. We certainly look forward to the new possibilities compatibility with MicroStation V8 brings."
