  • Hi Rémy,

    Is a MicroStation online (as a cloud service) planned ?

    Are you interested in "pure MicroStation", because DGN is the format you want to use, or in "CAD editor", provided by Bentley?

    I do not recall any information MicroStation is planned to be available online. Because it is standard desktop application, based on technologies like DirectX, I think to make it available in cloud always lead to some virtualization and desktop sharing.

    iTwinJS project, mentioned by is "designed for cloud". It is open-source technology, with commercial back-end (iModel hub), and its newest version brings also editing capabilities, but existing technology demonstrations do not show this functionality (yet?) This is "new world", with no dependency on anything like MicroStation or DGN, even when it is based BIM, which is a successor of EC data, used widely in MicroStation CE generation.

    With regards,
