Module Obj ectives This m odul e explains ProjectWise N avigato r feature s and file forma ts. It also includes a to ur of the int erface. At th e end of this module yo u will be able to launch ProjectWise Navigator, navigate the inte rface, locate tools and create new files. File Formats ProjectWise Navigator uses the V8 design file, or D G N. The DGN is defin ed using dou ble pre cisio n coo rdinates which provides a high level of coordinate accuracy.

  12. 12. File Forma ts versions of the DGN for mat pre-V8 and V8. T he V8 DGN format is expected to last until 2015. 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. PlantSpace Design Series files To open D G N files derived from PlantSpace D esign Series, you need Pro jectWise Navigator V8 XlvI E dition and the ams.lib and quot;'.dat files must be copied to the path specified by PS_P ROJ in the PlantSpace.pcf file in the ...

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.

Typically, the path specified is the ... BentleyWorkspace ProjectsExamp les Auto Pipe folder. PDMS files To open files derived from PDMS, you need ProjectWise Navigator V8 XM E dition. 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

A workspace is a custom ProjectWise Navigator confi guration tha t is set up by an administrator. By selecting a workspace, you customize ProjectWise Navigator for a specific discipline, project, or task. For example, ProjectWise Navigator is delivered with a sample workspace containing example files. When a workspace is active, the files and tools you need to perform designing and drafting are available by default. Tools that are not neces sary can be removed from the interface. -+ Exercise: Explore the workspace 1 Launch ProjectWise Navigator. 2 At the lower right of the MicroStation Manager, change the User from untitled to exampl es.

  36. 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. T he system administrator, CAD Manager or project leader will probably set the location of the project's design files. You can open existing ProjectWise Navigator files and create new files from the own workstation or any accessible device on the network that has access to a license.
