Designers will automatically be able to adhere to the U.S. National CAD Standard (NCS) guidelines from the Building Smart Alliance with the help of a new workspace for civil engineering applications from Bentley Systems.
The new Bentley NCS Workspace for Civil works with the InRoads and GEOPAK product lines, two of the leading civil engineering/road design software systems in the U.S.
Bentley workspaces are custom environments that include data resource files, interface customization and configuration variables. They enable users to customize software for corporate, discipline, project, client or individual needs. The NCS Workspace makes it possible for users to quickly establish integrated CAD standards while maximizing ease of compliance. It incorporates NCS guidelines for layers, symbols, drawings and plotting into default files for GEOPAK and InRoads, as well as the new Power GEOPAK and Power InRoads software.
