The simplified method allows a street map, aerial imagery, or hybrid imagery (streets and street names superimposed on aerial imagery) to be used as a background for any 2D or 3D design model that has a Geographic Coordinate System attached.
- LumenRT in Designer Mode
Bentley LumenRT CONNECT Edition Update 3 in Designer mode is now installed as a Companion Application. This application does not require a separate license and is available to all CONNECT subscribers.
- Data Interoperability
Support for opening and saving Autodesk RealDWG TM 2018 file format.
Support for import and export of SketchUp 2016 and 2017 files.
- i-Model Publishing Enhancement
The Publish i-Models dialog now provides an option to select various versions of i-Model to publish.
- Issue Resolution Service Enhancements

About MicroStation CONNECT Edition. 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.
MicroStation’s advanced parametric 3D modeling capabilities allow infrastructure professionals of any discipline to deliver data-driven, BIM-ready models. Your team can aggregate their work on MicroStation, including designs and models created with Bentley’s discipline specific BIM applications. As a result, you can create comprehensive, multi-discipline BIM models, documentation, and other deliverables. Since your project team will work in a universal modeling application, they can communicate easily to share intelligent deliverables and maintain the full integrity of your data.
MicroStation and all Bentley BIM applications are built on the same comprehensive modeling platform. You therefore can easily progress your MicroStation work into discipline specific workflows with Bentley’s design and analytical modeling BIM applications. With this flexibility, each member of your project team has exactly the right application for the work they need to do.
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.
