Many folks have asked what is the difference between MicroStation CONNECT Edition and PowerDraft CONNECT Edition.
PowerDraft is basically a subset of MicroStation. PowerDraft does not include:
You can edit 3D models in PowerDraft with the Detailing Callout tools, so you can use it to create and work with Dynamic Views, but you cannot edit the 3D graphics (except manipulation ... move, copy, delete).
You also get the following in PowerDraft:
Its quite a powerful piece of software for 2D drafting. Enjoy!
Can you explain how it is more restricted than V8i?
I do not believe we removed any functionality in CONNECT Edition that was in V8i. Unless I am missing something.
I will investigate and see what we can do. There may be technical reasons or perhaps it was a business decision. Will update soon.
