How to make small a dgn / dwg file size

Microstation: layout for printing

Doing this with AutoCAD has a different logic, and perhaps that is why some who try to do it with Microstation have difficulty. On one hand, because there is not much help about how to do it and in the other, that the way to do it is not just as AutoCAD does. For this, […]

Developing VBA applications with MicroStation

TRANSLATION NOTES: Please read some comments at the end of this post.

Adjusting data based on a more precise survey

This is an example of a common problem that is happening to me now. I have done a survey earlier with a less precise method, possibly with GPS, tape and compass. The fact is that when mounting the total station, we realize that the information occupies a deformation. The matter is that if it is […]

Contours from polylines (Step 1)

Earlier we saw how to create contours based on a points’ network taken in the field. Now we’ll see how to do it, from existing curves in a scanned map. As we did with the design of roads, let’s split the process into steps, so that the post won’t go longer than a snake fart. […]

Mouse’s right button

I have already reached PowerMap V8i Select Series 1 (8.11.05.19) which brings some interesting news. PowerMap, like PowerCivil PowerDraft and do not occupy a MicroStation license, but it is included as a runtime for a price quite low compared with Map + Bentley Microstation. So it runs like an application developed by oneself on Microstation’s […]
