The MicroStation product team is pleased to announce the availability of MicroStation CONNECT Edition Update 6 (version 10.06.00.38). The MicroStation family of products provide the power and versatility to precisely view, model, document, and visualize information-rich 2D and 3D designs of all types and scales for professionals in every discipline on infrastructure projects of every type.
The latest generation of MicroStation-based platform products are called the Connect Edition, taking over from the previous generation V8i. Bentley has dabbled with Microsoft naming conventions (95) to straight versioning over the years, this represents a break from all previous branding.
Note: MicroStation CONNECT is the first 64bit version of MicroStation. The principal advantage of a 64bit MicroStation is the enormous amount of computer memory it can use. Whereas previous (32bit) versions of MicroStation were restricted mostly to 2GByte of memory, a 64bit version of MicroStation can use many times than amount. A consequence of large memory usage is the capacity to create and edit huge 3D models. For example, a 64bit MicroStation can handle a detailed plant design where a 32bit version struggled. MicroStation CONNECT requires a computer having a 64bit processor and a 64bit version of the Windows operating system.
