A MicroStation Fundamentals learning path
Users looking to master MicroStation’s most essential features can kick off their learning journey with the MicroStation Fundamentals learning path in Pinnacle Series. Designed for beginners and those looking to refresh their knowledge, this course covers the essential tools, commands, and workflows in MicroStation.
The MicroStation Fundamentals learning path encompasses eight courses:
- MicroStation Overview
- Placing and Modifying Geometry
- Using AccuDraw and AccuSnap
- Working with Levels
- Working with Cells
As they progress through these courses, users will quickly gain confidence in using the software’s core features. By the end of the course, they’ll be able to:
- Navigate the software’s user interface
- Place geometry into a file & modify it using manipulation and modification tools
- Speed up the 2D drafting process using AccuSnap and AccuDraw
- Create and modify levels
- Work with cells to create reusable CAD geometry
- Annotate drawings
- Attach and use references
- Create output files and sheets
The best part? It only takes about four hours to progress through all eight courses in the learning path, so an employee can quickly go from a complete beginner to a MicroStation pro!
55+ on-demand videos
For any team member who just needs a quick tutorial for a specific task, our MicroStation training videos offer the perfect solution. For instance, what if they’re in the middle of a job and need a refresher on how to use fence selection tools or edit a cell definition? They won’t need to fast-forward through a long course to find the place with the right info. Instead, they can just search the MicroStation training video library to find the specific topic they need to brush up on.
Most of the tutorial videos are under five minutes, so users can quickly watch them and get back to work with little disruption to their day.
Finally, Pinnacle Series’ MicroStation training library also includes a product-based workflow designed specifically to help users create, edit, and place cells. Using a combination of list-style instructions and annotated screenshots, workflows are ideal resources for learners who absorb information better by reading vs. watching a video.
The steps are designed to be as clear as possible, and there are notes at the bottom to add context (e.g., the difference between a graphic cell, point cell, and parametric cell).
Exercises & data sets
Most of our MicroStation training courses also feature exercises with datasets that your team can use to practice working in the software. These exercises help illustrate real-world challenges, such as using AccuSnap and AccuDraw, working with cells, and communicating data through drawing annotations.
