In this Bentley MicroStation training tutorial, author and MicroStation trainer Peter Mann takes you through an introduction to the powerful tools available in this high-end CAD (computer aided design) software program.  Using unique training methods, this video tutorial will ensure you retain what you learn.
Starting with the basics, this computer based software training for MicroStation teaches you how to leverage the tools that this world-class program has to offer.  Instructor Peter Mann starts you off at the beginning, taking you through opening and saving new documents, discovering the different views, and understanding what elements are and how to control them.  You quickly move into understanding AccuDraw, the most important element of MicroStation, and all the tools that come with that.  You will learn how to create shapes, scale, rotate, and even work with annotations and text.  Peter finishes off with instructions for plotting and printing your completed designs.
By the end of this training video, you will be fully versed in the application of the basic tools of MicroStation, allowing you to create 2D CAD designs.  The author has included working files so that you can follow along with him in his training, using the same files he uses.
