US, November 06, 2014: Bentley Systems and Siemens PLM Software have integrated Bentley’s point-cloud building information modelling (BIM) solution with the process simulation tools in Siemens’ Tecnomatix software for 3D digital factory automation. This will enable users of Siemens’ product lifecycle management (PLM) software solutions to work from enhanced 3D digital models of existing factories in their as-operated conditions – by leveraging the models created from point clouds captured through scanning. The announcement was made at The Year in Infrastructure 2014 Conference.
Bentley’s industrial BIM applications already leverage several of Siemens’ PLM component software tools including Parasolid software, D-Cubed software, and the JT data format. As a result of this agreement Siemens PLM Software will now leverage Bentley’s Vortex point-cloud technology and incorporate it into other appropriate Siemens applications as the opportunities continue to expand.
