Variables and Equations

Variables can be divided into two main categories:

  • Global — created manually and available to all solids in the model.
  • Local — created by MicroStation automatically, for all feature parameters of a solid, and available for that solid (only).

Variables can be defined as individual values, or they can be defined by equations, which in turn may contain previously defined variables. Equations can include trigonometric and algebraic expressions, giving you a full range of options.
