Working inside the MicroStation or AutoCAD platform of your Haestad product has it's benefits, such as a familiar user interface and precision drawing tools.

However, if you prefer the Standalone interface or if version compatibility is a concern, the Standalone interface has some powerful functionality that can often allow you to accomplish everything you would normally use the MicroStation or AutoCAD interface to accomplish.
