For example, civil engineers can leverage MicroStation's road design tools to create accurate alignments, profiles, and cross-sections, optimising road infrastructure planning. While the software may have a learning curve, users often find it intuitive and easy to use once they become familiar with its interface. Integration with existing business processes is made easier due to MicroStation's compatibility with various file formats, facilitating seamless collaboration and data exchange.

Nachteile:

MicroStation, like any software, has areas that users find challenging or would like to see improved. Some users have encountered a learning curve when initially navigating the interface, but many find it intuitive and user-friendly once they become familiar with it. While MicroStation offers a wide range of features, some users have expressed a desire for additional advanced functionalities and enhancements to tools like rendering and parametric modelling. Integrating MicroStation with existing business processes can sometimes be complex, especially when dealing with intricate workflows or specific software requirements. However, with proper planning and support, effective integration can be achieved. It's important to note that these challenges are not universal, and MicroStation continues to evolve with updates and support, addressing user concerns and enhancing the overall user experience.

Microstation - Connect Edition

4,0 vor 2 Monaten Neu

Kommentare: Overall it is good experience, quite logical.
Wish many options from V8i could be shown with the same logic for Connect Edition (that we use now)

Vorteile:

Like the feature of the referencing (vs. AutoCAD - it is much easier and quicker)

Nachteile:

When referencing AutoCAD files (what we need quite often) - sometimes it does not work, needs transfer AutoCAD files into Microstation

v8i - An archaic drafting software

3,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: MicroStation is one of the most frustrating drafting softwares I have had to work with. If you plan on implementing it and have many new users, be sure to provide adequate training and budget for time wasted on the steep learning curve.

Vorteile:

The geographic projects settings are very useful in comparison to competitor software. Microstation v8i has a feature that lets you project coordinate systems. This is extremely useful when dealing with different client coordinate systems.

Nachteile:

The layout and commands of this software are very old fashioned and not intuitive at all. Commands consist of number and letter, although there is an option for allowing key-ins. Remembering the corresponding numbers and letters for commands can be challenging when in a rush and working at fast pace. If you can't remember the commands, then you can use the toolbars. By end of one hour, your right hand and shoulder using the mouse has undergone an intense workout. Your fingers will become very powerful. Using key-ins instead requires long commands. There is a separate save button for saving settings like display and view options. If you forget to press save AND save settings, you'll have to redo your setup when you reopen the drawing. Obvious settings are hidden. Simple commands like the selection tools are random letters like yuihjkl;. If you then try to work with Microstation Connect edition, commands are completely different. This is not a beginner friendly software. There is a lack of training resources and it's only learnable if someone holds your hand and walks you through.

Functionality and User frieindly

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: visualizing and modeling point cloud data and reality meshes.
microstation have separete module for each and lots or fundtion that can extract data. also reads several formats of point cloud which means i dont have to use another application and allow point cloud classifications with alot of features and specs

Vorteile:

what i like most about microstation it have alot of operations can be done through microstation drawing, 3d modeling, making charts and work sheets. without haaving to close and open another appliation. also i can visualize my work, hide, display or clip my design without deleting or removing any item. also microstation dynamic reference makes it easy to update all my drawings and sheets (3D&2D) with only updating design model. most of all it is Auto-save CAD application. and i can record each change i do on me my design and recall this changes.

Nachteile:

workspace, worksets configurations and design file settings needs to be more easy to understand

Useful but requires a lot of training

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

I've been using MicroStation as my primary CADD software for my job for the past year and a half. The functions and features are numerous and extremely helpful.

Nachteile:

While it is extremely useful and I have gained a pretty good command over its functions and features, it is difficult and time consuming to learn. I had to sit through hours of tutorials just to learn how to use the interface. Any time I have to learn something new, I often have to search for instructions online or in the help manual. It just isn't extremely intuitive.

Microstation review

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Again I believe MicroStation is the best software out there for Highway design that I have used. I have tied AutoCad but have not been impressed.

Vorteile:

I am in the Highway design industry which is where MicroStation excels when accompanied with GeoPak. I have been using MicroStation/GeoPak for 23+ years now and it has always been easy to use. Lately there has been some growing pains as it transitions to a new format call OpenRoads Designer Connect edition.

Nachteile:

Lately, as mentioned above, Microstation has been transitioning over to OpenRoads Designer Connect edition which is been difficult at times to work with. Although the format has changed they have been pretty good at trying to set it up similarly to what we are used to. Still there are issues though some may be caused with Ohio DOT trying to setup functionality as well. it has been a struggle as of late but from past experience i believe the bugs will all be worked out.

User friendly Engineering software

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Coming from a background of using AutoCad, it was a little bit of a learning curve. This program is necessary for state/city projects in our location.

Vorteile:

3 years ago I made a switch to a new company that solely used MicroStation and I have an AutoCAD background. Once I was acquainted with the general layout and set up my toolbars, it's been very easy to learn the program. I love the autosave feature, that it accepts AutoCAD files, and the way the select function works.

Nachteile:

That they do not have efficient quick keys. AutoCAD quick keys make the workflow easier. In MicroStation, they are not user-friendly, so I draft without. Also, beware of the way they work the network licenses if you accidentally go into a version you do not have extra seats for, it will allow you to work in it and you'll receive a HUGE bill.

Fantastic Software

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: I personally started out on AutoCAD by Autodesk for my drafting experience and I switched to MicroStation when I started working for National Grid and I have had nothing but great things to say about MicroStation. This software is much more user friendly.

Vorteile:

The most beneficial tool in MicroStation is the ease of finding support. Questions are easily answered by typing in what you want help on, there are plenty of quick keys and YouTube videos to assist you. Also the MicroStation support team is always willing to help with quick response time

Nachteile:

I do not have any bad things to say about Bentley or MicroStation. I have never had a problem

A fantastic Design Software to work with!

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: My Modeling skills are improved and Can definitely a much better modeler than, If I use AutoCAD these times.
Highly recommend this product over AutoCAD in infrastructure.

Vorteile:

I find 3D modeling and and my integration with Civil discipline is lot more easier with this software. As a civil structural Modeler myself, I find Microstation is the best to my industry and Bentley's R&D is one of the best learni g paths one could go through.

Nachteile:

Needs some improvements in Word editor. Its not that versatile as AutoCAD I always find that Microstation can definitely do much better Parametric Cell creation. Needs some improvements there.

Great product for infrastructure design

4,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: I have been using MicroStation for over 7 years. It is the best drafting software for engineers designing infrastructure.

Vorteile:

MicroStation is the best product for highway and bridge design. It is a very easy software to use and has a minimal learning curve. Overall, I find MicroStation to be much easier to use than AutoCAD. Bentley is improving all of their MicroStation/OpenBridge products and advancing the future of BrIM.

Nachteile:

I have no major criticisms of the software. There are some limitations with creating 3D models, but the product is coming along quickly.

30 years experience in Civil roadway design. But 15yrs or so with Inroads, 3yrs with Microstation

4,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: Faster Road design with Inroads running inside of Microstation

Vorteile:

Fairly stable platform doesn't crash to often. Nice that there are no large "Ribbons" that crowd the screen. I do like the multiple view tabs changing between them is a snap. Lots of on line video's. Control of Xref's is fantastic.

Nachteile:

Setting up a CAD standard for the office to use is a bit confusing. Need to improve the selection method for selecting multiple objects. Full snap button should include the parallel snap option.

MicroStation is fairly simple to use and is highly adaptable to our uses (Landscape Architecture)

4,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: It is easy to learn and works well with State Agencies (DOT, Colleges, Etc).

Vorteile:

It is built at "actual scale" so scaling onto sheets is very simple. It's well integrated into GIS and most state entities use it. Because the plans are geolocated, if you merge adjacent areas, they fit seamlessly

Nachteile:

Addressing tech issues is extremely burdensome. Most of the first level IT is in the far east and responses can take a day. This means low priority issues can drag on forever.
