MicroStation 3D for Civil V8i Training Course

Contact us for more information or a quotation!  

Overview:

This MicroStation training course not only provides a review of 3D basics needed to work with 3D graphics in civil design files, it also teaches 3D drafting techniques including how to use AccuDraw in 3D. Students go beyond drafting basics and learn how to utilize MicroStation’s 3D Construct and Surface Modeling tools to create a 3D bridge model. After creating the 3D model, MicroStation visualization and rendering tools are covered, including V8i’s new Luxology rendering engine. Students learn to assign materials and lighting conditions to create a more realistic model and incorporate this model into a 3D interchange project. The course also covers how to create a fly-through/drive through video of the bridge and interchange models.

Length: 3 Days (Typical)
Prerequisites:

This course is intended for MicroStation users with previous experience. The course does not cover the basics of MicroStation. If the student does not have a working knowledge of MicroStation, they should attend the MicroStation for Civil V8i course instead.

Details:

This course focuses on 3D MicroStation from a Civil perspective – it does not cover 3D solids. Go beyond the 3D basics in this training manual and learn how to:

  • Utilize 3D to help analyze data , such as surveys.
  • Rotate and manipulate 3D views.
  • Measure true and horizontal distances in a 3D file where elements are at different elevations.
  • Correct problems with elements incorrectly drawn in 3D.
  • Utilize AccuDraw to quickly draw in 3D.
  • Use 3D Construct and Surface Modeling tools to draw 3D elements.
  • Create a 3D bridge that can be used for modeling purposes.
  • Use MicroStation’s visualization and Luxology rendering tools.
  • Create both rendered images and fly-through/drive-through videos of your project model.

All students receive the MicroStation 3D for Civil V8i manual and dataset that is used to work through the topics with a knowledgeable instructor available to explain key concepts and assist with questions.
