MicroStation is the world’s leading information modeling environment explicitly for the architecture, engineering, construction, and operation of all infrastructure types including utility systems, roads and rail, bridges, buildings, communications networks, water and wastewater networks, process plants, mining, and more. MicroStation can be used either as a software application or as a technology platform.
Used as a software application, MicroStation turns ideas into reality. It provides immersive interaction with 3D models and 2D designs to confidently produce trusted deliverables such as precise drawings, information-rich 3D PDFs and 3D plots. Its robust data and analysis capabilities enable performance simulation of designs, including lifelike rendering and compelling animations. Moreover, its ability to integrate a comprehensive breadth and depth of engineering geometry and data from an unmatched range of CAD software and engineering formats ensures users can work seamlessly with the entire project team.
Used as a technology platform for discipline-specific applications from Bentley and other software vendors, MicroStation offers robust subsystems for consistent integration of geometry and data, and enhances the userexperience across a broad portfolio of comprehensive design, engineering, and simulation applications. It ensures each application leverages these advantages, enabling multidisciplinary teams to benefit from an interoperable software portfolio.
MicroStation’s advanced parametric 3D modeling capabilities allow infrastructure professionals of any discipline to deliver data-driven, BIM-ready models. Your team can aggregate their work on MicroStation, including designs and models created with Bentley’s discipline specific BIM applications. As a result, you can create comprehensive, multi-discipline BIM models, documentation, and other deliverables. Since your project team will work in a universal modeling application, they can communicate easily to share intelligent deliverables and maintain the full integrity of your data.
MicroStation and all Bentley BIM applications are built on the same comprehensive modeling platform. You therefore can easily progress your MicroStation work into discipline specific workflows with Bentley’s design and analytical modeling BIM applications. With this flexibility, each member of your project team has exactly the right application for the work they need to do.
Get all the advantages of BIM without the need to change your existing workflows.
