Some of you may be wondering if we ever will have a real-life image of a line style instead of the usual plain and simple line style, great news is that we now have it for you. The raster custom line style is the new Technology Preview feature being introduced in MicroStation under Custom Line Style Editor dialog. I guarantee you that it will be easy for you to create one. If you are familiar with creating the custom line styles, then you can do the same with creating the raster custom line styles.
The reason for implementation of this tool is being useful for producing high quality and efficient drawing in a 2D or 3D model. Any type of image editor such as Photoshop, Krita, and others can be used to create an image. Then the created image can be utilized into raster custom line style. For this blog, I am just going to create a raster component using one of the delivered images in the default Image folder.

You will have to first add the path of your line style resource (.rsc) file. Following are the steps to do the same:
Now, you are a pro with creating the raster line styles and compound components.
