RE: Info Requested: Microstation PowerDraft

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Instead of doing that ( buying the Microstation software ),
I think you should develop all the job in your system, (Auto-Cad  ?,
I guess ), and after that, to submit the final drawings, you do the
transfer to your client's system. We are currently proceeding this
way in our company, ( we have both systems ). You only have to
get someone to do the transfer, an operation which is quick and
easy ( say 15 min. / dwg. ).
