Introducing Bentley's Structural Navigator App for iPad or iPhone

The Structural Navigator app for iPad or iPhone is a new Navigator app used to view or interrogate structural models sent as i-models between any Integrated Structural Modeling (ISM) enabled application, including RAM, STAAD and ProStructures. Bentley’s ISM allows users to confidently synchronize structural data, manage design changes, and share models via desktop and mobile devices with the new Structural Navigator app. The app replaces Structural Synchronizer View and becomes the new app of choice for this group of users. 
Key capabilities include:
  • Easily create color-coded data visualizations, save views, and create or update punch list items.
  • Quickly access specialized ISM-enabled structural applications with fast, powerful analysis capabilities.
  • Swiftly coordinate, change, and synchronize data from multiple applications.
  • Efficiently review the structural model, drawings, and related information.
  • Proficiently track revisions and compare differences between model versions.
With the Structural Navigator app, engineers benefit from synchronized structural workflows in the office or field, maximizing interoperability between their structural products, projects, and people.  Additionally, it is now easier for users to access i-models, including optional attachments, through the Bentley CONNECT Personal Share.
“We are especially excited about our new Structural Navigator app. Building on the Navigator technology now allows structural users to take advantage of the many collaboration innovations built into Navigator. Users can now use the Personal Share, a CONNECT Edition Cloud Service, to easily share structural i-models, or participate in ProjectWise workflows to resolve issues or submit RFIs. Other unique capabilities include floor-based visualization with transparency and the embedment of analytical results from desktop applications for interrogation in the field on iPad and iPhone, extending the reach of the engineer from the office to the field,” said Raoul Karp, vice president, Structural and Bridge Analysis, Bentley Systems.
