MicroStation to PDF to reduce file size

I am trying to convert very large .dgn file sizes to a smaller pdf size to make uploading easier on my company's website. I have be able to reduce it a significant amount by changing the dpi, but I am not very familiar with MicroStation, so I am looking for some help. Does anyone know of a way to reduce the file size? I have been using Adobe and Bluebeam to do this.

    MicroStation files contain 3D models.  They store data, such as 3D coordinates, in 64-bit precision floating point numbers.  DGN is a very different format to PDF, which uses a different representation for 3D geometry. It's not clear what you mean by 'convert very large .dgn file sizes to a smaller pdf size'.

    You can print from a MicroStation to a PDF?  Have you tried that?
