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.

Productivity Corner: Dimensioning Tools Keep Your Styles In Order
With the introduction of MicroStation v8 2004 Edition, dimensioning tools are combined and tool settings are expanded for quick access to settings commonly changed during dimensioning. The selection order for dimension points has been redesigned to give you an early dynamic display of the dimension. Previously you would have selected the start point, the location, and then the end point of the dimension. Now you select the start point and end point of the dimension, followed by the location.

Productivity Corner: Microstation`s Rendering Capabilities
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.
