Bentley Connectors Alpha Release

Bentley Connectors Alpha Release

Written by Claire Kuang on

Hello Speckle world!

After an amazing effort by the team at Arup, we're releasing an alpha version of four brand new connectors 💥:

These connectors are developed and maintained by Arup, now also available for installation through Manager.

The connectors currently support most basic geometry conversions from Microstation, with (major emphasis) very limited additional conversions in OpenBuildings, OpenRail, and OpenRoads. We're hoping to add Civil3D and OpenRoads alignment interoperability soon 🤞

Documentation, support tables, and getting started tutorials are in the works, check back soon!

"By bridging seamlessly between different software packages, Speckle brings disciplines together that have not always worked closely, such as alignment, bridge and water management designers. We will realize even better designs and project outcomes when all our partners can work closely together, so we are excited to share these connectors with the community and encourage the whole industry to join us in developing the tools we need to build a sustainable and delightful future"

David de Koning, Arup's Global Speckle Lead
