3D Surfaces and Raster Manager

A 3D surface is required for Raster Manager images to be rendered. In MicroStation, these 3D surfaces can be represented by any DGN surface (shapes, b-splines, etc.) supported by the rendering engine. These 3D surfaces, which are often Digital Terrain Models, can be generated or imported in MicroStation with a variety of software products.

Note: Note that DTMs can be easily purchased through data providers around the world.
