MicroStation 3D

Learning how to move from 2D to 3D in MicroStation can take a while without professional guidance. You can save those weeks of expensive trial and error on our 3-day MicroStation 3D course, where you will develop a solid understanding of the software's 3D capabilities. You will navigate and work in a 3D design file, create and edit 3D curves, solids and surfaces in MicroStation, create parametric 3D models and develop a basic knowledge of 3D rendering.

Course content for MicroStation 3D:

  • Use AccuDraw in 3D, the view compass, design cube and ACS orientations, 3D point input
  • 3D Tools
  • Use spheres, cylinders, cones, tori, wedges, pyramids, elliptical cones, ellipsoids, polyhedrons
  • Apply standard editing tools to 3D elements
  • Use 3D extrusion, revolution, extrusion along a line, and thicken techniques
  • Create a linear 3D solid
  • Transfer your 2D skills to the 3D environment, familiar commands that work differently in 3D space
  • Learn how to taper, shell, intersect, subtract, trim, cut, fillet, and chamfer 3D objects
  • Modify, delete and edit 3D solid objects
  • Convert 2D geometry to 3D solid models
  • Align in 3D, change Smart Solid display, extract face or edge geometry, remove entities by size
  • Create free form 3D surfaces, model by lofting and sweeping
  • Import/export 2D and 3D designs, cells in 3D, patterning in 3D
  • Understand lighting types, placing lights, area lights
  • Save rendered views, use advanced camera settings
  • Work with materials, options and settings, material definitions
  • Assign interior and exterior materials and finishes
  • Create multi-layer materials
  • Understand photorealistic rendering methods for interior and exterior scenes
  • Use environment settings for scenes, sun image and fog effects, solar studies, fly-throughs
