MicroStation

The solution for the design of infrastructure and work with project documentation.

The MicroStation family of products provides traditional CAD capabilities and the power and versatility to precisely view, model, document, and visualize information-rich 2D and 3D designs of all types and scales, working for professionals in every discipline on infrastructure projects of every type.

MicroStation’s advanced parametric 3D modeling capabilities allow infrastructure professionals of any discipline to deliver data-driven, BIM-ready models.

Work with documents and visualization

With MicroStation, you can easily view, model, work with documents and visualize project data of any size and complexity. Reliable technology allows you to easily and confidently engage in design, construction and operation.

Regardless of the type of information you work with and the type of project documentation you need, you can count on the versatility and powerful capabilities of MicroStation for timely execution of work within the budget.

MicroStation and all Bentley BIM applications are built on the same comprehensive modeling platform. You therefore can easily progress your MicroStation work into discipline specific workflows with Bentley’s design and analytical modeling BIM applications.

Parametric 3D modeling

Develop even the most complex design models with a wide range of design modeling tools, including surface, mesh, feature, and solid modeling. Build parametric functional components with predefined variations to easily find and manage many similar components. Use drawing extraction tools which automatically immerse drawings within models for improved clarity and streamlined documentation workflows.

Project teamwork

MicroStation provides the ability to collaborate on a project team, including working on projects and models created using Bentley's BIM applications. As a result, it is possible to create complex universal BIM models and produce project documentation. Since the project team works in a universal application for modeling, all participants will be able to easily communicate, share results and maintain data integrity.

Unified modeling platform

MicroStation and all Bentley BIM applications are based on a single integrated modeling platform. Therefore, you can easily turn your MicroStation work into specialized workflows with Bentley's design and analytical modeling BIM applications. Thus, each team member will work exactly in the application that he needs.

MicroStation provides the following features:

Automation of project documentation

Use complex BIM models to automate the creation and sharing of project documentation, including drawing sheets, graphs, models, visualizations.

Reality modeling

Integrate contextual information for designs, including reality models, images, point clouds, GIS data, Revit or other models, DWG files, external data sources such as Bing maps, etc.

Built-in geo-coordination

Work in a geo-coordinated environment to design your BIM models in a precise geographic and geometric context.

Functional components

Use real parametric 3D modeling for advanced design modeling, taking into account 2D and 3D constraints, for collecting information and modeling a project.

Hypermodeling

Provide a more visual representation of the design by integrating detailed annotated documentation with 3D models.
