I refuse to hire a draftsman so that I can pay him for HIS time, then use
about twice the amount of time that it would have taken me just to do it
myself, in supervising him.
With rare exception any more, there's no such thing as a "draftsman" in the
original sense of the term. All you have are software/hardware operators,
whom I call "human xerox machines"--except that a xerox machine will
generally give you what you want on the first pass. These so-called
"draftsmen" typically take three or four to get it right.

Instead of buying Microstation and having to learn it, how about finding
a drafter in your area that has Microstation and use his services.
