- [Tutor] Open the file for chapter eight,…Working with Cells.dgn, and using View groups,…select the Placing Cells model.…The objective of this chapter is to learn…how to use standard symbols in the Microstation environment.…A standard symbol in Microstation is called a cell,…similar to the block in AutoCAD.…Cells are stored in a cell library file…and not as individual files.…A cell library is just a DGN file…with a different extension, .CEL.…There are basically two types of cells in Microstation;…a Graphic cell and a Point cell.…
The Graphic cell is a symbol…that is created with a level, color,…line-style and line-weight attribute…defined in the cell when it is created.…This type of cell does not inherit…the active attributes when placed.…The Point cell is a symbol where level, color,…line-style and line-weight is defined when it's placed…using the active attributes.…First let's take a look at how you can place cells…that are already existing in a design file.…Before I can place a cell,…I have to attach a cell library…
