New in MicroStation CONNECT Edition Update 15 - (Public Technology Preview) DWG WorkSet Wizard

There is great news for users working with both MicroStation and AutoCAD for their project deliverables. While working with AutoCAD and MicroStation hybrid folder structures or converting your DWG folder structure to MicroStation configuration it is difficult to locate and use AutoCAD standards. To ease this process in your workflow, update 15 introduces the DWG WorkSet wizard that helps you create a WorkSet for your DWG project.

Just as the Configuration Assistant helps you move your V8i projects to CONNECT Configuration, the DWG WorkSet Wizard helps you move all your DWG folder structure to MicroStation’s CONNECT configuration. This process of migration is as simple as it can get. You can access the wizard from the Workpage in MicroStation, under the WorkSpace drop-down menu.

Once the new WorkSet is created successfully, you must restart MicroStation to view it.

The DWG WorkSet Wizard is also available for PowerDraft for your 2D workflows.
