Microstation Connect - Drawing extraction

Is there in Microstation Connect Edition a tool like "Drawing Extraction Manager" that was in the V8i edition? Or something that colud extract editableable visible edges that keep a link to the original file?

  • Hi Antonio,

    Drawing Extraction Manager (DEM) has never been part of MicroStation V8i Edition, but, as far as I remember, it was tool delivered with build products (like AECOsim Building Designer).

    So, I am confused a bit what your question is:

    • If the question is not about MicroStation, but OpenBuilding Designer, please move the discussion to building forum. To move existing discussion, use More > Move tool, available under your original post.
      Also, I recommend to search existing discussions and other content for similar topics, because some "DEM in CE" aspects were discussed already (see e.g. this wiki page).
    • If you really use MicroStation (and not some building product), the question cannot be about DEM, but maybe it's "how to achieve similar functionality"? In cuh case, the link shared by Jon is a good place where to start.

    I also recommend to follow the best practices, because regardless you use MicroStation or any other product, it's crucial to specify both the product and its exact version. CONNECT Edition products have evolved rapidly and available tools and features differ in every versions (and there are many, e.g. MicroStation CE exists in about 20 versions now).

    With regards,

  • Hi Jan, 

    thank you so much for the clarification.

    Drawing Extraction Manager (DEM) has never been part of MicroStation V8i Edition, but, as far as I remember, it was tool delivered with build products (like AECOsim Building Designer).

    actually I realized that the Microstation edition in which I used the DEM was the XM not the V8i. Do I have to change title and tags of the topic? 

    If you really use MicroStation (and not some building product), the question cannot be about DEM, but maybe it's "how to achieve similar functionality"? In cuh case, the link shared by Jon is a good place where to start.

    Do you mean in the title of the post? Because in the post I used the expressions "... a tool like... or something that could... ". However I'll read the links that Jon kindly shared. 

    Finally, I'm sorry for some mistakes compiling the form, It was the first for me. However I will read the best practices that you shared and I'll follow them the next time.

    Kind Regards, 

    Antonio
