  • Slide 11
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 11 @BentleyCivilFeatures What is a Feature ? At its simplest, a Feature is anything in your design that represents a real-world entity. Curb and Gutter Asphalt Pavement Manhole Wall Aggregate Base R/W Marker Ditch Fill Slope Etc.
  • Slide 12
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 12 @BentleyCivil Feature Definitions What is a Feature Definition ? Properties used to define how a feature is to be displayed, annotated, computed, etc.. These are normally customized by each organization. These are normally created in advance and propagated across an organization in order to standardize designs.
  • Slide 13
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 13 @BentleyCivil Types of Feature Definitions 3 types of feature definitions are supported. Point Feature R/W Marker Control Point Iron Pin Linear Feature Curb & Gutter Wall Ditch Surface Feature Existing Ground Aggregate Base Asphalt Pavement

  • Slide 15
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 15 @BentleyCivil DGN Libraries Feature definitions reside in DGN Files/Libraries. DGN Libraries (optimal) Allows for propagation of standards across an organization DGN Files Can be created directly in DGN file, but this is not the recommended procedure Note: When a feature definition is used from a DGN Library, the feature definition will be copied into the DGN file. This is standard MicroStation functionality (e.g. levels, line_styles, fonts, etc.).
  • Slide 16
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 16 @BentleyCivilQuestion How does the software know which specific DGN Libraries contain features? Or does it just read from all of them?
  • Slide 17
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 17 @BentleyCivilCivil_ContentManagementDGNLiblist This variable is used to define which specific DGN Libraries are to be used to define your features.

  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 58 @BentleyCivil Manual Creation of Feature Definitions A feature definition can be manually created at any point by right-clicking and selecting the desired option. The properties of the feature definition would then need to be set manually as well.
  • Slide 59
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 59 @BentleyCivil Best Practice Linking to your legacy style files is intended to be a starting point to help you get your feature definitions created quickly. Best practice is to do this once. After the initial linking has been done, any structural changes to the feature definition tree (new features, renaming of features, etc.) should be made directly in the DGN Lib. Note: An exception would be changes to symbology or annotation, which would be made in the legacy style file.
  • Slide 60
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 60 @BentleyCivil Element Templates In addition to pointing a feature definition back to a legacy style in order to assign display properties, you also have the option of pointing to a MicroStation Element Template.
  • Slide 61
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 61 @BentleyCivil Jump Start with Civil Workspace What are Element Templates ? Element Template A MicroStation concept which allows preconfigured definitions for symbology and other miscellaneous display of MicroStation elements and civil features.
  • Slide 62
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 62 @BentleyCivil Element Templates vs. Native Styles In some situations the Element Template is desirable as opposed to the Native Style Surfaces Feature Definitions used for Existing Terrain Models
  • Slide 63
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 63 @BentleyCivil Element Templates vs. Native Styles In GEOPAK the D&C Payitem Attribute can only be placed if the Feature Definition is pointing back to that DDB Native Style entry. Element Templates do not currently support Payitem Attributes.
  • Slide 64
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 64 @BentleyCivil Element Templates vs. Native Styles Surfaces Feature Definitions used for Proposed Components
  • Slide 65
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 65 @BentleyCivil Element Templates vs. Native Styles Note this is an either/or option. You cannot have both defined. If you try and select both it will disable the Element Template and by default use the Native Style.
  • Slide 66
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 66 @BentleyCivil Properties of Feature Definitions Lets first take a look at the individual properties and how they work. Point Linear Surface
  • Slide 67
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 67 @BentleyCivil Feature Definition > Name Prefix Found in all 3 types ( Point, Linear and Surface ) This prefix would be used as the default name prefix for any civil element placed using this feature. For Geom. intended to be exported back to native GPK (GEOPAK Only), the COGO naming rules must be followed.
  • Slide 68
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 68 @BentleyCivil Plan Property Available for Point and Linear features Defines how the feature is to be displayed in a 2D view Allows for either Native Style or Element Template definition Auto Export (True or False) Auto Annotate (True or False)
  • Slide 69
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 69 @BentleyCivil Auto Export If set to True, then any geometry elements created using this feature will be automatically exported to the appropriate legacy coordinate geometry database (FIL, ALG, GPK). If set to False, then this export would not occur. ALG FIL GPK
  • Slide 70
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 70 @BentleyCivil Auto Annotate If set to True, then the horizontal geometry element will be annotated immediately whenever it is created or modified. If set to False, then annotation would not occur. Note: You MUST use a Native Style in order to produce annotation, as the specifications for the annotation are based on the native feature style.
  • Slide 71
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 71 @BentleyCivil Auto Annotate (GEOPAK only) For Auto Annotate to function correctly the Auto Export MUST be enabled as well. MicroStation Drawing Scale must be set to a value that matches a value in the DDB Native Style being used.
  • Slide 72
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 72 @BentleyCivil Auto Annotate (GEOPAK only) For Auto Annotate to function correctly the Design File Settings > Civil Formatting > Station Settings MUST be changed to the By Index setting.

  • Slide 73
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 73 @BentleyCivil 3D Property Found in all 3 types ( Point, Linear and Surface ) Defines how a feature is to be displayed in a 3D View. For Point and Linear features, this property allows for either Native Style or Element Template definitions. However, for Surface features, it only allows for Element Templates. Note : For surface features to be available in the template library editor, they must be pointing to an element template.
  • Slide 74
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 74 @BentleyCivil Linear 3D Appearance Considerations The 3D linear feature property should consider the color of the rendered surface. For example, a back of curb may be yellow in the 2D plan design, but in the 3D model it only makes sense to have this color match the concrete material assigned in the surface feature assignments through element templates.
  • Slide 75
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 75 @BentleyCivil Profile Property (Surface) Defines how a profile cut from a surface is to be displayed in a Profile View (normally existing profiles). Allows for Native Style or Element Template definition No Auto Export Note: No Auto Annotate for Profiles in current version

  • Slide 78
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 78 @BentleyCivil Profile Property (Linear Feature Type) The profile is always in a child/parent relationship with a horizontal geometry element. As such, the feature of the profile will always be inherited from the horizontal geometry.
  • Slide 79
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 79 @BentleyCivil Profile Property (Linear Feature Type) The profile symbology can be overridden at placement by the specification of an Element Template. After placement, the symbology can be overridden via the assignment of an Element Template in the Element Information dialog.
  • Slide 80
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 80 @BentleyCivil Profile Feature (Review) Feature inherited from Horizontal Feature inherited from Surface
  • Slide 81

  • Slide 85
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 85 @BentleyCivilQuestion Shouldnt a Surface feature definition contain a cross section property as well? How will the software know how to display my existing and proposed surfaces on cross sections?
  • Slide 86
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 86 @BentleyCivil When cross sections are cut, the proposed elements take their symbology directly from the proposed 3D model. Cross Section View Display
  • Slide 87
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 87 @BentleyCivil The existing ground symbology is always taken from the 3D Property of the feature definition (which must be an Element Template ). For example, here someone has gone into Element Information and changed the triangles to blue. Cross Section View Display
  • Slide 88
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 88 @BentleyCivil Yet the existing ground line displayed in my cross sections is still green. Cross Section View Display
  • Slide 89
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 89 @BentleyCivil That is because the symbology for the existing ground is being taken from the Element Template called out in the 3D property of the feature definition. Cross Section View Display
  • Slide 90
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 90 @BentleyCivil Linear Default Settings Property Available for Linear Feature Definitions only

  • Slide 92
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 92 @BentleyCivil Automatically Create 3D Elements What does this property do? When you place a horizontal geometry element using a feature that has this enabled AND the Create 3D Automatically is enabled on the toggle bar, an existing ground profile and a best fit profile is automatically created for the element being placed. In addition, the best fit profile is made active, creating a 3D element.
  • Slide 93
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 93 @BentleyCivil Corridor Template If this property is assigned a template, then this functionality is enabled for this particular feature definition. However, in order for this functionality to actually be applied at placement, both the Create 3D Automatically AND the Use Feature Definition Template toggles on the Feature Definition Toggle Bar MUST be enabled as well.
  • Slide 94
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 94 @BentleyCivil Terrain Model Feature Type This property specifies how this feature should be treated as a None, Break Line, Void or Boundary - should this feature ever be used in the creation of a Terrain Model.
  • Slide 95
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 95 @BentleyCivil Create Template Geometry Specifies whether the 2D geometry should be created whenever a template containing this feature is used. If True, then the 2D geometry will be drawn. If False, then it will not be drawn.
  • Slide 96
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 96 @BentleyCivil Create Template Geometry How does this work? Each point in a template is assigned a feature. This feature either has the Create Template Geometry functionality enabled or disabled.
  • Slide 97
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 97 @BentleyCivil Create Template Geometry When a corridor is created, then if the Create Template Geometry is enabled for a feature, then the 2D geometry will be drawn. The resulting geometry is not ruled to the alignment, but it is ruled to the Corridor (i.e. if the Corridor updates the geometry will update as well) Feature = Road_EdgeOfPavement
  • Slide 98
  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 98 @BentleyCivilSurvey If a feature is created using the Link Survey Features Definition option, the Is Survey option will automatically be set to True.

Project Settings: Customized preferences to be used in the creation of corridor designs and surveys. These preferences can be applied as the defaults for both corridor design and survey creation, or they can be applied at various time increments throughout a project. In addition, these Project Settings can be saved in DGN Libraries and consequently propagated across an organization.

  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 109 @BentleyCivil Project Settings Project Settings Template Management Template Drop Interval Multiplier Used to increase the final template drop value to expedite the corridor processing times. For example, if a designer wants a final design template interval every 10 feet but is working in a preliminary conceptual layout, they may want this number set to 10 to only have cross template drops every 100 feet in their conceptual model. Ultimately, this will process the model up to 10 times faster then the final design stage where the multiplier would be set to 1.

OpenRoads technology offers methods for these similar but different designs that capture and reuse these design, while easily adjusting their parameters.

  • http://Learn.Bentley.com 2013 Bentley Systems, Incorporated 152 @BentleyCivil Civil Cells What are the problems we need to overcome? When we draw in a CAD environment, we often find the need to draw the same objects repeatedly. Thus the need in MicroStation to have some type of functionality that allows us to do this. MicroStation cells provide this functionality. We can define and then save these objects in a cell library. And whenever we need a particular object, we just look for it in our library and place it, eliminating the need of drawing the same object repeatedly.

We must be able to carry the engineering intelligence behind the configuration forward in order to reuse it and modify after placement.
