P.To open a drawing in MicroStation

To open the current drawing in MicroStation, use the following procedure.

You must have either MicroStation or Bentley PowerDraft installed to use this feature.

Note: If you have MicroStation PowerDraft installed instead of MicroStation, you will have that product's icon instead of the MicroStation icon in the drawing toolbar.
  1. Open a drawing in the Steel AutoDrafter workflow.
  2. On the drawing toolbar, select the Open in MicroStation tool.
    You are prompted to save the drawing file (.dxf file extension).
The drawing opens in MicroStation.
Tip: The resulting .dxf can be opened within any compatible program.
