Sewer and stormwater modeling
Bentley Systems Inc. announced that its forthcoming SewerCAD, SewerGEMS, StormCAD, and CivilStorm V8i (SELECTseries 3) releases will have a unified file format, allowing users of each product to directly open models created in any one of the other three, eliminating the need to import one type of file into another. To support this streamlined workflow, the same hydraulic element types are now available in all four products. All four products can now publish i-models (containers for the open exchange of infrastructure information) in 2D or 3D.
