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: A Close-up Look At Feature Modeling
MicroStation`s Feature Modeling extension provides a powerful set of tools for 3D solids modeling. Solids models created using the Feature Modeling tools are fully editable, either using the parameters defined during creation, or graphically using Element handles while selected. When you add a feature to a SmartSolid, MicroStation will automatically convert the SmartSolid to a feature solid.

Productivity Corner: Make Your Renderings Look More Realistic
As you begin using the design visualization tools of MicroStation, choosing the rendering method and experimenting with the results is quite common. However, the results can be very unpredictable. Sometimes, the default global lighting parameters for a given model are configured well enough and provide acceptable rendering results.

Use Filefixer To Immunize Your Files Against File Corruption
Even though MicroStation has become less prone to corrupting its files through the years, MicroStation aborts like end-of-file missing errors, unselectable elements and other such anomalies still occur. These problems are the reasons why Axiom developed FileFixer 7.7, in which the new Immunize feature debuted (read the November 2000 issue of MicroStation Today for more on Immunize).
