Overview

Understanding MicroStation/J covers the essentials of the both 2D drawings and 3D models including the new SmartSolids found in MicroStation/J.It continues the straightforward and easy-to-read format as seen in its predecessor, Understanding MicroStation 95/SE, a highly acclaimed and widely adopted textbook.Readers are shown actual screen captures along with "pointed" information that have proven to be exceptional features.MicroStation/J is simplified and streamlined into the basic essentials needed to learn and use the software from a beginning level. It also contains up-to-date information about Java and ProjectBank as well as the new productivity enhancements introduced in MicroStation/J.

The first fifteen chapters cover the use of CAD in two dimensions.Chapters 16-21 discuss three-dimensional topics, such as rendering, solid modeling with SmartSolids, and using 3D models to create drawings. The final chapter focuses on ProjectBank, a new concept in MicroStation, along with Java and object-oriented CAD.

Numerous examples and end-of-chapter Questions and Exercises give readers the opportunity to test their knowledge and practice what they've learned.This book can be used as either a course textbook or a self-instruction manual.It is geared toward engineering/architecture students but also addresses the needs of people working in industry, especially those involved in the field of transportation.
