What is MicroStation?
MicroStation is the world’s leading information modelling 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. A single, comprehensive application for 2d and 3d design and engineering, MicroStation is used by engineers, architects, GIS professionals, constructors and owner operators to design, model, visualise, document, map and sustain infrastructure projects. MicroStation is intuitive, versatile, highly interoperable and boasts additional development capabilities. As with all Bentley solutions, MicroStation has support for editing and reading Autodesk’s DWG format. MicroStation is a CAD software product for 2- and 3-dimensional design and drafting, developed and sold by Bentley Systems. The latest versions of the software are released solely for Microsoft Windows operating systems, but historically MicroStation was available for Macintosh platforms and a number of Unix-like operating systems. MicroStation is the platform architectural and engineering software package developed by Bentley Systems, Incorporated. Among a number of things, it generates 2D/3D vector graphic objects and elements. Current version is MicroStation V8i.

MicroStation CONNECT Edition
In November 2014, Bentley Systems unveiled its next generation of software, the CONNECT Edition.
During the Press Release, Bentley announced, that the CONNECT Edition would succeed Bentley’s V8i software generation, supporting a hybrid computing environment for Comprehensive Project Delivery and “completing the reach” to all project participants. Starting with the platform products, Bentley plans to launch MicroStation CONNECT later this year, followed by the modelling applications and AssetWise offerings at a later stage.
In preparation for its release, MicroStation CONNECT Edition was the first application to be made available on Bentley’s Early Access program. This has been the perfect opportunity to delve into this new version to learn more about its features and enhancements, as well as provide feedback to Bentley to help shape and further refine it. Here, we share some of our findings with you.
