Tired of repetitive, time-sucking, BS-laden MicroStation tasks?
How to get your design projects done faster than ever!

When it comes to your MicroStation® projects, wouldn’t you like to roar through them as fast as possible?

Have you ever imported Word™ documents or Excel™ spreadsheets into MicroStation and then spent hours trying to force the formatting to come out half-decent? Forget it — we’ve got you covered so you’ll never have to struggle with ugly imports ever again.


Is finding and reattaching multiple missing references or changing the settings in multiple files a pain? Just hit the gas and blow through this one in no time at all.

Hate getting an error message when opening a DGN file — or worse, a file that won’t open at all? Nope, never again on your watch.

Need to replace text or modify the properties of text elements in multiple DGN files? No problem. Zero to 60 in under three seconds.

Are you tired of dealing with:

Time-eating tasks?

Inaccuracy due to error-prone manual changes?

Mind-numbing repetitive tasks?

Having to replace text or modify the properties of text elements in multiple DGN files?

Some other MicroStation-related problem?

I have been an Axiom proponent since the
early 90s ...

There are high-performance tools for that.

Frequently Asked Questions:
“Which Garage tool handles that?”

To find the answers you're looking for, simply click on each question below.

Can I somehow link my imported data to the original files without using a raster image?

Yes. Microsoft Office Importer is the Garage tool that allows you to link your imported Excel and Word data back to the source files without being forced to rely on a raster image. This allows for automatic updates to the imports anytime a change is made to the source data. Plus, you get flawless formatting that mirrors the original document.

Can I get my imported spreadsheets and Word docs to look exactly like the original docs?

Yes. If you want flawlessly formatted imports of Excel spreadsheets and Word documents into your DGNs, Microsoft Office Importer in Garage is the answer.

I have references that are missing. Is there a way to retrieve them?

Yes. RefManager in Garage can report on and fix missing reference files for you.

I’ve got a DGN file that seems dead as a doornail. It won’t open, no matter what I try. Can Garage help me?

Yes. You’re most likely working with a corrupted DGN file. Garage’s FileFixer can fix that for you so that the file opens correctly.

I have 217 files that all require multiple changes and I’m down to the wire on my deadline. Is there anything in Garage for that?

Global File Changer can make global changes to multiple design files with just a few keystrokes. It amends hundreds of files in mere minutes.

Our quantity calculations are way off what was originally estimated, probably by around 30 to 40 percent. How is this possible and do you have any tools that could solve this problem for us?

If your DGNs appear to be accurate, you’re possibly dealing with duplicated elements. They can be almost impossible to spot and would certainly account for a bloated materials list. Duplicate Element Remover can show you exactly which elements were duplicated to help bring your quantity calculations back in line with what you were expecting. And, of course, it does it faster than a human could.

Have you got a tool that can help me comply with my CAD standards?

Yes. If you have elements with properties that violate your CAD standards, SpecChecker in Garage can find and fix them for you.

Is there a quick way to move cells from one cell library to another?

Yes. With CellManager in Garage, you can rapidly move cells to a different library, modify the properties of library cells and create cell library documentation.

I’ve got a macro that I would like to run on about 1,000 files. Can I do that with Global File Changer?

Yes. Simply create an ASCII file and give it a “.key” extension. Add the following line: MACRO x:pathmacroname.bas, where “x” is the name of the drive, “path” is the path where the file is located and “macroname.bas” is the name of the macro.


Then, use Global File Changer’s easy-to-use file selector to build your list of files to process and the macro will be run on all your selected files. (There is much more information on all of the uses of key files in the Global File Changer User’s Guide.)
