Overview

INSIDE MICROSTATION, V8I is an indispensable how-to and reference manual that provides readers with the knowledge they need to optimize the power of MicroStation to solve today's design challenges. Mission-critical tools and functions in MicroStation are explained as well as the ways in which V8i features work together in the design environment. This book also emphasizes the use of AccuDraw, Bentley's patented user interface technology, in every aspect of the design process. Complete and practical coverage of 2D construction tools, 3D modeling and rendering techniques, customization, and MicroStation's VBA programming environment will give a competitive edge to users working in a real-world design environment. Because of its easy style, technical accuracy, and attention to detail, as well as its fast paced, highly engaging examples, exercises, and illustrations, INSIDE MICROSTATION V8i is the ultimate user guide for readers at all levels.
