We in Australia will be soon required to use MGA2020 for cadastral survey, but this datum selection is not available to me in MicroStation V8i ss4.
I've been told it is available in Bentley Map SS4 which we don't have .. If it is could somebody copy and post or PM me or email me the necessary files that I could copy intoMicroStation V8i ss4. as if it was a custom datum.
We don't have map and wont move to CE for a while yet as the local DOT here haven't adopted CE yet and not updated all their standards and templates...
Unfortunately the coordinate systems file format is different between v8i and Connect Edition so what you are suggesting would not work.
Hi. I believe MGA2020 is not available in Bentley Map V8i SS4, it seems to only be available in CONNECT Edition versions of Microstation and Bentley Map.
For the benefit of others, I was able to get the CE Update 11 GDA2020 Geographic Coordinate System files to v8i (SS4) by the steps below:
Here are the Geographic Coordinate System Custom Library files that go in your "C:\Program Files (x86)\Bentley\MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries)\MicroStation\GeoCoordinateData\" folder and some info about variables to add to you configuration:
Please note that Map is only required to change co-ordinate system data not to read custom data so all should be fine. These files produced identical results for the same dataset between CE and v8i so i'm pretty confident it works well, but suggest some testing before using on project data.
OpenRoads Designer 2022 R3 (10.12) | Microstation CE Update 17.2 | ProjectWise CE 3.4
so we can use these files in v8i to reproject attach xrefs on the fly that are old datum like gda94 ontop of active new file with gda2020 cgs embeded
when I open new dgn can we then define the Gda2020 cgs from the tool box and library in v8i?

Yep, there are now 3 additional GCS libraries in addition to the delivered one attached for GDA2020 when you add that variable to your configuration.
