Navigator Mobile App for the iPad launched

By on 2 April, 2013


Bentley Systems recently announced the availability of its new Navigator Mobile app, which provides access to and review of 3D models on the iPad. Bentley also announced the next generation of Bentley’s i-models, which serve as containers for open infrastructure information exchange.

Navigator Mobile enables construction workers in the field, architects and engineers on the move, and other project stakeholders to navigate – online or offline – 3D architecture, engineering, and construction models, as well as to browse project documents in various formats.

The next generation of i-models used in the app uses the SQLite software library to deliver unmatched performance on virtually all mobile devices.

Harry Vitelli, Bentley vice president, construction and field products, said, “our first generation of i-models had all of the functional requirements nailed: provenance, engineering precision, self-description, and portability. And they also could normalise AEC data for accessibility through office technologies and enterprise connections.

“Our next generation advances the technology underlying an i-model with the power of SQLite, which is perfect for the challenges of industrial-strength, ‘purpose-built’ apps for mobile infrastructure professionals involved with complex tasks such as interactive inspections, engineering data visualisation, and model review. At the same time, this extends Bentley’s platform across iOS, Android, and Windows RT environments.”

With the all-new Navigator Mobile app, iPad users can navigate architectural, engineering, or construction models in 3D using easy-to-use, game-like touch gestures to walk, fly, zoom, and analyse objects in the model. Moreover, they can review the properties of a selected object, query to find similar objects, filter to hide or display objects that match specific properties, measure distances between objects, and more.

Stephen Corney, senior structural modeller, Arup said, “Now that projects are more distributed – with teams and other resources often scattered around the globe – it’s becoming difficult to maintain collaborative workflows. Mobile devices like the iPad are fast becoming the clipboard of today, and adding a project review tool to them is the ideal solution to the growing project collaboration problem. Bentley’s new Navigator Mobile app is easy to use, provides the comfort factor of data security, and will be part of our team’s solution set.”
