Pros and Cons

  • Simple user interface
  • Easy to pick up from using any other CAD tool
  • Some of the more complex models have had a few issues exporting.
  • We've struggled with external consultants using the custom AutoCAD engineering tools, and it plays nicely with MicroStation.

Pros and Cons

  • MicroStation, as a stand-alone CAD package, is a great plan production tool.
  • MicroStation makes a very good base to build other applications on top of.
  • It has at least, in my opinion, a very easy to use interface.
  • While it has a very usable interface it contains a lot of commands and can be intimidating to a beginner.
  • MicroStation uses several interfaces (depending on versions) which can complicate its use in large spread out organizations.
  • Multiple versions of the product can be an issue for large organizations to keep up with.

Pros and Cons

  • Microstation is simply set up with both drop-down lists of tools as well as button arrays.
  • Microstation handles large amounts of data decently well.
  • Microstation works well even when many files are referenced together.
  • MicroStation's graphic interface appears data in comparison to other CAD software.
  • MicroStation has a tendency to crash if not managed properly during design.
  • MicroStation's transportation design component is separated from the main system which causes occasional complications.

My Review of MicroStation

Score 8 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • References are easy to import, do not bog down your computer, and allow the user to interact with them.
  • MicroStation allows you to open multiple instances of the program at once without the lag on the computer that you get with AutoCAD.
  • Smart Lock!! I use this all the time. It is one of my favorite features of MicroStation.
  • Tables: There needs to be a function to insert a table (like AutoCAD has) and the test inside behaves much like Excel.
  • Dimension manipulation. There should be easy commands to break dimension lines when dimensions intersect as well as a command to add a jog. These are all things that are done easily in AutoCAD.
