i wanna know that is it possible to built such cells in microstation v8i so when i place it in a sheet
it will ask me which view ( front side plan or isometric) i wanna use . like i wanna use a BOLT so
i could use any view according to my need but as i m new to microstation i get that till now that i have
to make 4 cells for each view so i could use these.
so is there a way to define all 4 view in a single cell
Another thing there
Could anyone please tell me that how I cab built such file like I got from microatation library
Steel that have sections like beam pipe etc
And I can place those in sheets
But there is same problem as I asked earlier that I can use only one view of it like front view or so
Is there a way to have option to have all four views and to use any according to need
MicroStation is a 3D tool. If you design an object, such as a bolt, in 3D then you can rotate it how you want.

You don't define a view in a cell. A cell defines the geometry of an object (e.g. a bolt). The object can appear in any view.

I think I know what you are used to.
What you could try is use SS3's CVE functionality. You would make your bolt in 3d and in the same dgn file, make models that reference the 3d model with the orthogonal views as CVE's.
You would then insert the desired 'plan' 'front' etc CVE as cells.
PS: once you set up the model, you can reuse it, and don't have to reconstruct the CVE's.

The person who posted the question is a newcomer to MicroStation. Put yourself in his place and attempt to understand the above sentence. Please expand TLAs (three-letter-acronyms) the first time you use them.
Of course..... CVE = Cached Visible Edges.
Blurb from the Mstn help file:
"When a 3D design model is directly referenced to a drawing model, you can set the visible edges display of the reference to Cached. The Cached Visible Edges option stores the edges for a drawing or sheet attachment in an intelligent cache that associates the edges with their underlying geometry. When an attachment is set to Cached, it performs a snapshot of the geometry when the cache was generated. The cached visible edges display will not change to reflect model changes until the cache is reloaded."
You can update the CVE via the Reference Dialog box, if needed, but I suspect off the shelf bolts won't need this much.
See help file.
