PROCAD introduces you to the tools that MicroStation has to offer you. You will start with the basics, and cover techniques such as creating and saving documents, using different views and understanding AccuDraw. You will learn to create shapes, scale, rotate and work with annotations and text. You also learn how to plot and print your completed designs.

Continuing where the Fundamentals course left off, in Microstation V8i Intermediate, you will learn to utilise advanced tools and techniques to create your CAD designs. This training course covers topics such as advanced uses of AccuDraw, dimensioning and annotation. Peter shows you how to create complex shapes, use patterning and create custom line styles. You will learn about composite curves, customizing MicroStation to your own needs, and more.

Microstation V8i 3D introduces the powerful 3D modeling tools that Bently has included in for you to create realistic 3D models of your objects. You learn how to use Accudraw in 3D, work with primitives, perspective and lighting, as well as how to create photo-realistic renders of your objects.

By the completion of these three training videos on MicroStation V8i, you will have an advanced understanding of how to use MicroStation to create 2D and 3D CAD designs.
