Bentley CloudWorx and PlantSpace. Product Description Product Benefits Workflow Examples. Bentley CloudWorx: Product Description. Open very large point-clouds (up to 1 billion) directly within PlantSpace Use the PlantSpace tools to View, Rotate, Zoom at reasonable speed
Bring a new level of depth & detail to PlantSpace projects (as-built data, direct data extraction, design verifications, construction monitoring, asset operation and management – the wholly grail of life-cycle management)
CloudWorx brings reality directly to every PlantSpace user’s desktop across a very broad spectrum of applications, including structural design, piping design, equipment, and electrical.
Bentley CloudWorx opens in PlantSpace as an mdl application, allowing the user to select the appropriate point cloud ModelSpace
The point clouds provide the “road map” for creating an accurate as-built using CloudWorx and PlantSpace tools together
CloudWorx tools allow the user to quickly hide portions of the cloud that are not of immediate interest.
Slicing the point clouds along a horizontal or vertical place provides a clear view in either plan or elevation
The CloudWorx “Fence to Pipe” command allows fast identification of piping center lines and diameters
Multiple center lines can be fit quickly and easily by adjusting clipping planes and views.
The center lines can then be connected to create a single polyline with the CloudWorx “Connect Pipes” command.
PlantSpace tools are now used to turn the polyline into a “Intelligent Line String”.
Intelligent piping components are then placed on the Intelligent Line, completing the as-built.
Clipping planes are adjusted to improve the view
A clearance is selected (8”) and the clash is run
The polyline can be turned into PlantSpace piping for further checking
The clash is now run against the actual piping components further checking
