SpecManager doesn’t correct MicroStation elements in violation of CAD standards. Rather, SpecManager allows users to select and place features (physical components like a specific type of door, a masonry wall or a two lane road) from a pre-configured list of features that already meet the required CAD standards.
SpecManager helps MicroStation users place design features on the correct levels and with the correct symbology and other attributes. Before placing any given feature,MicroStation users select the name of the feature from the SpecManager dialog box and the MicroStation tools and attributes (like level, color, weight and style) are automatically set to the CAD standard for that feature. CAD standards are easily defined using a simple text file.
SpecManager is installed on every workstation that uses MicroStation for design purposes. Though non-intrusive, SpecManager is always active when designing as it is constantly accessed in order to draw different features.
