Productivity Corner: A Close-up Look At Feature Modeling - MicroStation tutorial
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.
