SIG Workshop: GenerativeComponents − January

Presenter: Volker Mueller

This event has concluded
Working with Alignment-Based Modeling

The system automatically detects your local time-zone based on your computer’s settings and will display the relevant date and time for you.

This GenerativeComponents Special Interest Group virtual workshop focuses on Alignment-Based Modeling and how to develop GenerativeComponent models based upon linear alignments from other Bentley applications. The technology presentation will guide you in how to:

  • Use a ReferenceAttachment node to link a reference file to a GenerativeComponent model
  • Place a Range node to help select contents from the attached reference
  • Apply the FromElementsInRange technique to convert referenced geometry to GenerativeComponent nodes
  • Use CoordinateSystem nodes to determine how additional GenerativeComponent nodes relate to the alignment geometry
  • Replicate GenerativeComponent nodes based upon those CoordinateSystem nodes
  • Continue building more GenerativeComponent geometry on top of a GenerativeComponent model started in this way

Attendance to this one-hour session is complimentary and open to all Bentley users.

Participants of this one-hour event can earn one Professional Development Hour (PDH) from Bentley Institute. To review your Bentley Transcript/Learning History, go to There, you can self-report your professional development efforts to the respective organization, licensing board, or professional association. Requirements may vary and acceptance of Bentley Institute PDHs is ultimately at the discretion of the those organizations. Bentley recommends that you confirm board or association terms and conditions.
