For beginning CAD courses, Technical Drafting programs, and Engineering Graphics courses that include CAD.Continuing the straightforward and easy-to-read format as seen in the first book Understanding MicroStation 95/SE, this text covers the basics of both the 2-D drawings and 3-D models including the new SmartSolids (TM) found in MicroStation/J (R). It also contains up-to-date information about Java and ProjectBank as well as new productivity enhancements introduced in MicroStation/J (R). Readers are shown actual screen captures along with "pointed" information that have proven to be exceptional features.

Review quote

What reviewers say: ..."not only a good text for a beginning course in MicroStation, but also a good reference for more experienced users."-Mike McFarland, Department of Engineering Technology, Oklahoma State University, Okmulgee "The exercises really set this text apart. They are very practical and generally have some real-world application that is missing in a lot of textbooks. Students responded positively when I used the previous edition so I would expect a similar reaction to this version. Since there are very few MicroStation texts, I'm sure they will keep it as a reference."-Rande Robinson, North Carolina Department of Transportation, West Virginia State Community and Technical College "The book's most competitive strength is its straightforward, concise, and informative writing style. Many computer texts are nightmares to read. This one is very easy to read. The coverage of topics is also very complete."-Terence J. Mullen, Carroll College "The language of the text certainly brings the software to the user and explains the concepts in common language."-Richard Houk, Michigan Department of Transportation
