This new text assists the student who has learned the AutoCAD product and now needs to make the transition from that environment to the MicroStation design format. Conversely, the text can be used to transition from MicroStation to AutoCAD. Each chapter presents a quick summary of a specific feature in AutoCAD, followed by the related feature in MicroStation. The student who must work with both products will find this text to be a solid basis for understanding how "the other side" thinks. Translating data between the two products, cross training, and other issues are discussed thoroughly. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
