Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Eric DeLeon and welcome to my course, MicroStation Essentials: Designing and Annotating Elements. I am an AEC technology professional with 18 years of experience encompassing work within civil engineering, industrial design, marketing, and new technology environments. MicroStation is one of the top CAD programs in the world, and is used by the majority of the government agencies, as well as many private sector firms within the AEC industry and beyond. MicroStation is a powerful program that has the capabilities to accurately view, draft, model, document, and visualize 2D and 3D content for every discipline and phase within the infrastructure project lifecycle. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the Getting Started with MicroStation Fundamentals. Some of the major topics that we will cover include drawing elements, selecting elements, manipulating elements, modifying elements, working with cells, and annotating elements. By the end of this course, you'll have a solid foundation in using the MicroStation tools to draw, manipulate, modify, and annotate elements to create design and drawing files. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn MicroStation, with the MicroStation Essentials: Designing and Annotating Elements course, at Pluralsight.
