Opening D GN , DWG, and XML Files You can open the following file types directly using Pro jectWise Navig ator V8 Xl1: MicroStation design files (DGN) AutoCAD design files (DWG) XMpLant design files (XML) XM L files based on XMpLant can be ope ned witho ut any prerequisites. However, the XML files must be valid against the XMpLant schema v2.6.5. Prerequisites for Opening Generic Mic roStation files To open generic D G N files, you need ProjectWise Navigato r V8 Xl1 Edition.

PDS files To op en DGN files derived from Plant Design System, you need ProjectWise Navigator V8 XM Editio n and the DRV file for each D G N must be in the same folder as the D GN. TriForma files To open D G N files derived from Pro jectWise Architecture, Structural, and HVAC, you need Pro jectWise Navigator V8 XlvI Edition and must have the TriForma extension installed. Generic AutoCAD files To open generic DWG files that are not derived from AutoPLANT, you need Proje ctWise Navigator V8 XM Edition.

Features Models A model is an independent container that stores graphical information and settings associated to that model. ProjectWise Navigator DGN files can contain multiple models to facilitate the design process as well as enabling the management and distributi on of CAD standards. Models are equivalent to sheets in a spreadsheet application. Sheets are ind ependen t num erical spaces and models are independent graphical spaces. Design histo ry and file protection D esign histor y records historical changes to the design file and lets you restore earlier revision s of a design. File protection lets you control and protect the intellectual prop ert y. Do N o t D uplicate Copyright © 2007 Bentley Systems. Inco rpora ted Pro jecr'Vi sc Navigator V8 XiI Essentials 5 4! 5!0 7

  • 36. Working with Design Files Working with Design Files Design file (DGN) is the name of MicroStation's primary data storage file. Saving files When you open a drawing for modification in ProjectWise N avigator, the program reads the drawing's data from the design file stored on the computer's hard disk or network device into the computer's local memory (RAM). During the design process, ProjectWise Navigator periodically writes the changes back, saves them, to the open file on the hard drive. Creating a ProjectWise Navigator design file You must either open an existing design or redline file or create a new one. In the next exercise, you will use the MicroStation Manager to create the new file. You can also do this from within ProjectWise Navigator by selecting File > Ne w. -+ Exercise: Creating a new file 1 Click the New icon at the top of the MicroStation Manager. 2 E nter myfile in the File name field of the New dialog box. Do not press <Enter > yet. Doing so is the same as clicking OK which will finish the creation process and close the dialog box. 3 Click Browse next to the Seed field at the bottom o f the dialog box. You are using Exa m pleSeed.dgn as the file on which to base the new file. 4 Click Cancel. S N ow click Save. T he new file name myfile.dgn appears in the MicroStation Manager. 6 Select myfile.dgn and click Open. 7 The elements you see were present in the seed file.

It is similar to working on a sheet of paper. Using the 2D view controls, you can move up, down, left, or right, as well as change magnification . You can rotate the view to work on it at any angle. In a 3D mod el, you can view a design from any direction . View controls let you ro tate a view to any orientation. There are also a number of standard views orientations that you can use. You can even specify a cam era target and eye poin t position . Standard 3D views ProjectWise Navigato r has eight standa rd views; Top , Fro nt, Righ t, Isometric, Bottom, Back, Left, and Right Isometric. Standard view names describ e the orienta tio n of the design cube in the view, relative to the viewer. Copyright © Z007 Bentley Systems, Incorporated Projcct'wise Navigator '8 Xl!

The Clip Volume tool solves this problem by letting you select a discrete volume within the design cub e for display. You can use 2D or 3D elements to defin e th e volume. Wh en you use a 2D shape, the clipping volume is created by sweeping the 2D shape th rough the entire design. The sweep direction is perp endicular to the plane of the 2D element. X1hen a 3D element is used it define s the enti re volume. You may want to work on part o f a model, while hiding another part of it. If the elements all are on the same level, you can use the Clip Mask tool to mask the elements no t required . NOTE: E ach clement in a design is on a level.

The challenge is to assemble the content in one application for downstream proce sses.

References let you see and print the contents of oth er designs witho ut changing their content. A reference is a design that is attached to th e active design. Entire print sheets can be composed of referenced designs and the y can be upd ated dynamically.

If the attached file is not found in that exact loc ation, the attachment will be missing. The best way to en sure portability when attaching references is to enable Save Relative Path. This causes the relative path to the file to be saved as atta chment data in the DGN file so the file can be more easily located.

Attachment settings The first option you can select in the Refere nce Attachment Settings dialog box is the mod el you want to atta ch. All models in the file you have selected are listed . Just select the desired model. Since the same model can be attached man y times , the Logical N am e field helps you to distinguish be tween references. O rientation sets the view of the mod el that you will see. Coincident, the default, aligns the referenc es with regard to design plane coordinates only. Coincident World aligns the references with the active mod el with regard to both Global O rigin and design plan e coordinates. Scale (Master:Ref) sets the ratio of the master units in the active model to the master units in the attached mod el. Use thi s if the reference elements need to be scaled. For example, 2 to 1 would make th e referenc ed element s twice as large as eleme nts in the maste r. Projectw ise Navigator uses working unit s to acco mmodate different systems o f 1:1 measurement. When working units differ between files, the relation ships must be ~, determined and then references scaled accordingly. If you enable the Tru e Scale toggle in the Attachment settings dialog box, thes e adjustme nts are made auto matically. Copyrigh t © 2007 Ben tley Systems.

  • 70. Raster References Raster References A Raster Reference is a link to an extern al image that resides outside a file. Use Raster Manager to work with these images. Select File > RasterMana gerto open it. You can display images of various formats, from monochrome to full color. Single images, or groups of images, can be set to display in one or more DGN file views. The drawing and annotation tools can be used in views that display raster images . X!hen you display a raster image file in a DGN file, it is attached as a raster reference atta chm ent, similar to a regular reference. When a raster attachment is modified using Raster Manager's tools, no changes are made to the original file, just to its attachment information in the DGN file.
