I am a technical piping engineer. My first microstation that I work with was Microstation 3. I had followed a 3d course with microstation V5. and that was the first time that I draw in 3 dimensions. The latest version that I draw is V8. I draw utilty and process piping with microstation in the industry. I want to promote Microstation in the utility piping in the Netherlands. But the most utilty contractors use Autocad with applications. I can also draw with Autocad with applications from the Netherlands. But it's not workable. Because you need the newest hardware. My expirience is not good for Autodesk. Because I get a lot of errors and sometimes autocad close without a warning.
So I draw everything with microstation. The best software for technical designs.
