Stressed MicroStation User

Have you ever:

Experienced trouble when pasting Excel® spreadsheets or Word® documents into MicroStation?

Suffered through finding and reattaching a bunch of missing references or had to change the reference settings in more files than you care to remember?

Received an error message when trying to open a DGN file or had a file that wouldn’t open at all?

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

Encountered some other MicroStation-related problem?

Axiom’s productivity tools in Toolkit have saved us upwards of more than a million dollars in overall costs for just this
one project.

— K.S.

There's a tool for that.

You’re busy and your workload can be overwhelming, especially with the clock ticking on a deadline. And while MicroStation may be loaded with tools and features to enable excellent design, what it lacks is tools to make your life easier — boosting productivity with minimal effort on your part.

How reassuring would it be to know that you can reach for the exact tool you want anytime you need to:

Automate a repetitive task

Produce Word and Excel imports that look exactly like the original docs

Fix files that stubbornly refuse to open

Make multiple changes in hundreds or thousands of files

And much more!

Frequently Asked Questions:
“Which Toolkit 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 Toolkit 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 Toolkit is the answer.

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

Yes. RefManager in Toolkit 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 Toolkit
help me?

Yes. You’re most likely working with a corrupted DGN file. Toolkit’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 Toolkit 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 Toolkit 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 Toolkit, you can rapidly move cells to a different library, modify the properties of library cells and create cell library documentation.

The client wants the reference files submitted as part of the DGN. Do you have a tool for that?

Yes. RefMerge in Toolkit easily merges your references and master DGN into a single file.

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.

Example:
O:MyMacrosChangeText.bas

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.)

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

Yes. Microsoft Office Importer is the Toolkit 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.
