Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Eric DeLeon, and welcome to my course, Getting Started with MicroStation. 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 government agencies, as well as many private sector firms in the AEC industry and beyond. In addition to being a traditional CAD program, MicroStation has become a powerful modeling, design, and bin program as a part of infrastructure projects of all sizes. This course is for the new MicroStation user. Basic CAD knowledge and terminology is helpful, but not required. Some of the major topics that we will cover include general tools, defining element attributes, controlling the display of design and drawings, and using AccuDraw and AccuSnap. By the end of this course, you will have a solid foundation in using MicroStation to create design and drawing files. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn MicroStation with the Getting Started with MicroStation course at Pluralsight.

Getting Started with MicroStation - General Tools
Hello, and welcome to Getting Started with MicroStation. My name is Eric DeLeon, and I will be your guide in your MicroStation learning journey. In this first module, we will be going over some of the general tools to get you on your way to MicroStation mastery. So let's get started.

Getting Started with MicroStation - Element Attributes
Welcome back. We will continue our MicroStation learning journey by learning about element attributes. This module teaches how to define and change element attributes. I will show how to define element attributes with the use of the attributes box, and how to change element attributes with the Change Element Tool. Now let's get started by opening the Element Attributes file from your course resources. See you in the next video.

Getting Started with MicroStation - Controlling the Display of Designs and Drawings
Welcome back. We will continue our MicroStation learning journey by learning how to control the display of designs and drawings through the use of view controls, View windows, and level display. This module teaches how to use the view controls to move around the View window. And then we will learn how to arrange the View windows to use tools across large design files to improve efficiency and accuracy. I will also show how to use the View Attributes and Level Display Tool to control the display of design and drawing elements by turning off and on specific elements and levels. Now let's get started by opening the View Controls and Level Display file from your course resources. See you in the next video.

Getting Started with MicroStation - Using AccuDraw and AccuSnap
Welcome back. We will continue our MicroStation learning journey by learning about AccuDraw and AccuSnap. This module teaches how to configure and use AccuDraw to draw more precisely and efficiently, And I will also show how to configure and use AccuSnap to snap to elements with accuracy. Now, let's get started by opening the AccuDraw and AccuSnap file from your course resources. See you in the next video.
