How do you create a new file or open an existing file in the MicroStation-integrated version of a OpenFlows product such as StormCAD?


When attempting to lay out elements in a new DGN, the following message occurs:

"The current model does not contain a hydraulic model. Please use New or Attach Existing on <product name> Project menu prior to running other <product name> commands."


1. Open the "...for MicroStation" shortcut. 

2. Create a new DGN file or open an existing one

3. The next step will depend on the version of MicroStation you are using. With MicroStation CONNECT Edition, from the OpenFlows ribbon menu, select Hydraulic Models, then either Attach New... or Attach Existing...

With MicroStation V8i, from the OpenFlows product menu, go to Project > Attach New... or Attach Existing...
