1 Bentley CloudWorx and PDS Product DescriptionWorkflow Examples
2 Bentley CloudWorx: Product Description Open very large point-clouds (up to 1 billion) directly within PDS*Use the PDS tools to View, Rotate, Zoom at reasonable speedView in multiple modes (intensity color, gray scale, texture mapping)Use the host CAD tools to dimension and measureDetermine pipe sizes and centerlineFit planar surfaces (walls, floors, beams etc)*PDS requires Bentley CloudWorx
3 Bentley CloudWorx: Product Advantage Provides Easy Access to “Reality” within PDS - anytimeBring a new level of depth & detail to PDS projects (as-built data, direct data extraction, design verifications, construction monitoring, asset operation and management – the wholly grail of life-cycle management)Provides value to a broad spectrum PDS UsersCloudWorx brings reality directly to every PDS user’s desktop across a very broad spectrum of applications, including structural design, piping design, equipment, and electrical.
5 WorkFlow Example 1 Creating an accurate as-built Launch Bentley CloudWorx in PDSOpen point cloudsIsolate area of interestFit pipe centerlines from pointsConnect centerlinesRoute PDS piping components DONE!!
6 CloudWorx opens as an mdl application within PDS
8 The CloudWorx “Slice” tool can be used to easily isolate an area of interest such as piping at a particular elevation
9 The plan view clearly shows the layout of the piping at this elevation.
10 The CloudWorx “Fit to Fence” tool is now used to identify piping centerlines and diameters.
11 Additional piping is fit after switching the slice to a vertical section
12 Multiple centerlines can be connected to using the “Connect Piping” tool in CloudWorx.
13 PDS tools are used to “Sketch” over the routing line in preparation for placing PDS piping components.
14 The completed “Sketch” line is now ready for component placement.
15 The PDS “Place Component” dialog is used to place piping on the routing line.
16 Completed piping is now ready for material takeoff or other analysis
17 WorkFlow Example 2 Create and Clash Check New Design Identify tie in location from pointsIdentify routing of new line through pointsSketch pipe routing with PDS toolsPlace PDS piping componentsClash check and adjust as requiredDONE!!
18 The CloudWorx environment can also be used for routing new lines and checking for clashes against the points.In this example a new line is being connected to an existing line and routed through the structural steel opening.
19 After changing the slice and switching to a plan view the routing of the new line is continued.
20 PDS components are placed on the new routing line.
21 The new design is now clashed against the point clouds The new design is now clashed against the point clouds. The design can be adjust to eliminate the clash.
22 SummaryBentley CloudWorx with PDS provides a fast easy solution for a wide variety of engineering and design applicationsBentley CloudWorx is easy to learn and results in immediate productivity in the design process.
