Join Jeanne Aarhus for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of MicroStation: Plotting in V8i.
- [Instructor] If you a premium member of Linkedin Learning you have access to the exercise files used throughout this course. The exercise files are in folder called Exercise_Files. And for this demonstration have been placed in a folder on my desktop. You can place them wherever you want in your own system, however you will need to edit the Linkedin.ucf file delivered with the files. Let me show what I'm talking about. I will open the folder Exercise_Files located on my desktop. And you'll see the folder PlottingV8i-2D.
I'll open that folder and locate the PlottingV8i-2d.ucf file. This file must be copied into your microstation installation folder in order for the course files to work properly. So I will right click and copy this file to the clipboard. I've provided a shortcut to take you right where you need to put this file. Unless you have installed your microstation in a non standard location. If you did install microstation in the standard location, just double click on this shortcut and paste PlottingV8i-2D.ucf file here.
Now you're ready to work with the delivered exercise files. When you open the folder Exercise_Files and PlottingV8i-2D folder you'll find it organized into sub-folders that are based on the microstation resources required for use in this course. You'll find a collection of files in the dgn folder that relates back to each video. Open the files when instructed to do so and follow along with the demonstration. If you're not a premium member of LinkedIn Learning you won't have access to the exercise files but you can still follow along with your own microstation files.
So let's get started and learn how you can be proficient using a microstation plotting environment and how you can automate some of those tedious printing tasks.
Jeanne Aarhus begins by using a customized environment to show how simple plotting can be. She then demonstrates how to automate the print environment to improve project efficiency. Jeanne also explains how to use the software to generate output using different types of models, including design, drawing, and sheet models. After completing this course, you're prepared to generate simple 2D and 3D drawing output to various output types using a customized print environment.
- Using Windows printers
- Using models to print
- Using the sheet model at 1:1 and 1:50
- Using cut sheets
- Batch printing with the Print Organizer
- Using CAD data in the PDF
- Understanding print configuration files
- Setting up workspace print configurations
- Using print attributes
- Using pen tables
- Using logical name automation
- Using a standard border
