Overall Satisfaction with MicroStation

MicroStation is used as an alternative platform apart from AutoCAD to teach students interior design. MicroStation's infrastructure designing with the real-world context helps students to better understand the subject thereby creating a solution which has a practical approach.
  • Plethora of design alternatives to choose from right from design to completed models
  • Detailed approach towards parametric, mesh and surface modelling
  • Well integrated modelling workflows
  • Intelligent parametric components with 2D and 3D designs
  • Expensive software
  • Workset configuration and design file settings should be more intuitive and easy to understand
  • Lacks intuitive and modern design
  • Real-world context examples
  • Ability to photo texture and then creating locations
  • Project team collaboration
  • It is an easy tool to create workflows and simultaneously work collaboratively
  • Costs are little high but the demand associated with the knowledge of this software is quite big
  • MicroStation expertise has helped us gain more business as we have a working knowledge of it
MicroStation is best suited for large infrastructure projects, example: road design projects. Designing 2D and 3D can be done in other software too, but the context of real-life examples is an added advantage of MicroStation.

Do you think MicroStation delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with MicroStation's feature set?


Did MicroStation live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of MicroStation go as expected?


Would you buy MicroStation again?


MicroStation is well suited for environments where animation and 3D modelling is required for designs. It perfectly fits into scenarios where Building Information Modelling (BIM) is used. One should avoid this platform if the budget is low and the overall length of the project is not huge.
