If you need to create isometric drawing in MicroStation, you are probably wondering how to do it easily. We are not talking about drawing the isometric in 3D model, but isometric diagram in 2D DGN. Open your MicroStation. Try to find the lock symbol in status bar, and click it. It is the active lock […]
We have discussed about using text and cell to annotate our drawings. Let us explore further about annotation tools. This time, we are going to discuss how to use MicroStation dimension. Even if we create our drawings in exact sizes, plot it in certain scales, we still need to add dimensions. It doesn’t make sense […]
I started using CAD from AutoCAD. I believe most CAD users (at least that I know) also start learning from it. One thing that we depend on is using the command line. There is always strong reaction when we say Autodesk should get rid of command line. I always have the deadly question when I […]
We are still discussing about MicroStation cell. We already discussed that we can use cells as reusable library. Now we know that we can place the cell. However, there are more that we can do with cells. Look at the cell library dialog box. At the bottom of the dialog, we can see several options, […]
After you’ve been working with MicroStation cell for a while, I’m sure you will be wondering how to modify the cell on your drawing… and how you can modify the cell in your cell library. Well, I guess the best practice in MicroStation is, you don’t change the cells on your drawings, but you replace […]
In this tutorial, we will learn how to create your own cell library and cells.
So you want to create and manage your symbol libraries? This MicroStation tutorial will guide you to do it!
MicroStation levels are used to separate and distinguish your drawing objects. When the drawing become complex, you will need to control the object appearances. You will need to show them in different colors, different line weight, and different line style… or you may need to show/hide objects in a certain category. You can use levels […]
