MicroStation 101 – MicroStation Essentials

Class Description
The MicroStation Essentials course is designed for the new MicroStation user and builds a solid foundation in the concepts, tools and features found in the MicroStation drawing environment. In this hands-on course, students are already using MicroStation by page four of the course guide. Starting with setting up a drawing and concluding with plotting, students walk through a typical workflow using the tools and features of the latest version of MicroStation.
