MicroStation: Better Technology8 Nov, 2019 By: Cadalyst Staff
Get projects done faster and smarter with better technology
Whether your projects are designed strictly in 2D or you start by developing 3D CAD models, MicroStation can help you discover new ways to shave time off design and documentation, so you can deliver projects faster or invest those time savings in exploring and developing better designs. In addition to employing traditional CAD workflows, with MicroStation you can incrementally adopt advanced BIM-enabled workflows that provide a leap forward in productivity and flexibility without disruption. Discover how MicroStation offers you a better choice of technology.
Explore More Design Options
Achieve the freedom to explore and model any design you can imagine with MicroStation’s complete and integrated set of solid, surface, and mesh modeling capabilities. The software also includes persistent and powerful constraint capabilities that enable you to rapidly model and iterate to find the best performing design options. You can also convey your design ideas more effectively and persuasively with world-leading capabilities to produce renderings, animations, and real-time visualizations to help win hearts and minds to speed approvals and win more business.
Improve Project Deliverables
MicroStation automates the production of a comprehensive range of high-quality deliverables, including multidiscipline drawing sets, reports, and models. Save time and increase productivity because you and your project participants can accelerate production of reliable project documentation without tedious, manual workflows. Leverage embedded BIM information to speed common tasks like annotation, table creation, and object symbology to save time and reduce the risk of out-of-sync data during work-in-progress. With the built-in standards templates and standards checking tools, you can ensure the highest quality of deliverables with peace of mind about standards compliance.
Integrate Any Data Type
You can eliminate the headaches associated with projects where there are a variety of design and construction applications in use, each with their own proprietary file formats. MicroStation gives you unparalleled file format support to access and produce project information with the richness and precision of geometry and embedded property data required for infrastructure projects. Not only are the most common vector, point cloud, raster, and reality mesh formats supported, Bentley licenses Autodesk’s RealDWG format, so you can edit and produce authentic RealDWG data as if you were using Autodesk products. As a result, you can combine and integrate any data type, including precise automatic placement of geospatial data, to develop comprehensive, multidiscipline models to facilitate coordination and produce the most accurate multidiscipline documentation possible.
When you combine MicroStation with world-class support and services, you are on your way to elevating your competitive outlook. Not only do we provide the best technology, our support organization is there to help you onboard as smoothly as possible so you can begin designing and delivering projects quickly. We will work with you to ensure your team successfully transitions in days and not weeks.
