We have used it to some extent.
It is very powerful.
Does 3D modeling very easily.
Fewer clicks to perform a particular task as compared with AutoCAD.
The file sizes are huge compared with 3D AutoCAD. Depending on the file they
are about 10 to 100 times larger than a comparable AutoCAD 3D file. Forget
using a modem for transfer. You will need a T1.
The modeling transfer between AutoCAD and Bentley are not very seamless.
There are some gymnastics that have to happen.
Surfaces are modeled very differently in AutoCAD and Bentley.

Last week I attended the a/e/c show in Los Angeles and looked at an
impressive structural cadd package by Bentley called Microstation Triforma
Structural. Wanted to know if any body looked at it and what impression you
got from it?
