Finishing Mill is a Microstation app that expedites
the completion of a project.
Whether you are building data for yourself, others in
your organization or an external client, Finishing Mill
will help you polish off the project.
Like most Foundry products, Finishing Mill cuts clicks
without cutting corners. Finishing Mill was
developed to cut out up to a day of busy work
prepping a dataset for delivery.
• Detaches all reference files
• Compresses the design file
• Sets the active level to 63
• Turns on all levels
• Sets the view to top
• Fits the design file to the screen
• Sets the weight on
• Turns off the grid
• Saves the current settings
• Deletes any type 66 elements
GeoSieve is designed to make it easier to find outlier
attribute values such as typos or otherwise mistyped
information and review them quickly.
This tool comes out of our global mapping
processes where we regularly process datasets that
cover entire countries. We needed a sieve to quickly
filter out all the outlier attributes across multiple
attributes and features classes.
Clean up the vertices along linear networks where 3
or more segments intersect.
Line Runner works by moving through connected
network features with identical attributes and
merging them back together.
While mapping a river region in the south pacific,
Continental Mapping analysts were dismayed when
many network features were disconnected at their
vertices during an outside process.
A key to cutting software cost over-runs, Watch Dog
tracks license usage in multi-user environments,
keeping users from exceeding license total and
encoring unnecessary/expensive license fees.
Microstation has a licensing model that allows you to
use more than you have purchased but it will then bill
you, creating potential for huge cost overruns. This tool
monitors license usage and stops users from going
beyond the license count setting.
It only took one big bill from Bentley to get this tool
developed. It has saved Continental Mapping
thousands of dollars.
