A drawing border is necessary for any technical drawing. It defines the margin of the drawing space which is defined in ANSI/ISO and Din standards. The drawing border also contains the drawing header which displays e.g. the drawing name and other information on the drawing.
Note: The cell and tag set creation use native MicroStation commands. Basic knowledge of MicroStation is assumed.
Your company has their own drawing borders and drawing headers. Here is an example of such a drawing header:
