Automatically Update Spreadsheet Links Every Time Microstation Files Are Opened
Automatically Update Spreadsheet Links Every Time Microstation Files Are Opened
One of the problems that MicroStation users face is that MicroStation's LiveLinks software often does not automatically update spreadsheet or word processing data when a MicroStation file [in which this data is linked] is opened. The data is not automatically updated even though the spreadsheet or word processing file has been modified and saved after the import. In addition, the links created with LiveLinks, if later unlinked, tend to create unselectable elements in a design file.

Productivity Corner: Microstation`s 3d Capabilities, Part 2
When working within a 3D model, you will be viewing the design from any direction. Tools in the MicroStation View Control tool box (figure 1) allow you to rotate a given view to any orientation, or you can specify a camera target and eye point position. To accelerate the setup, MicroStation has eight standard views you can use: top, front, right, isometric, bottom, back, left, and right isometric. You can rotate the view in any direction or add perspective.

Change A Text String Across Hundreds Of Microstation Files With Global File Changer
Change A Text String Across Hundreds Of Microstation Files With Global File Changer
Using regular MicroStation tools, changing the text string "Kennedy Boulevard" to "Kennedy Boulevard/State Road 1" in one text element is a fast and painless task. Having to change all instances of this string in one MicroStation file is not a welcomed task, but it's still a bearable one. But what if this string had to be replaced across 250 MicroStation files? Doing this task could take a great amount of time and waste valuable human resources.

Wiremesh differs from wireframe display in that curved surfaces are represented by a polygonal mesh, resulting in a more realistic representation of curved surfaces. Although wiremesh representations are useful, they present a lot of information on the screen, as the surfaces are presented as being transparent. For this reason, I use hidden line display options whenever possible.
