    Delivered civil workspaces

  • The MX Association of Australasia 28-30th July 2013

    What is a MicroStation Workspace?

    A custom MicroStation environment or configuration.

    By selecting a defined workspace, you customize

    MicroStation for a specific discipline, project, task, or

    standard.

    What are feature definitions and how can I use my own styles ?

  • The MX Association of Australasia 28-30th July 2013

    What is a Feature Definition?

    What is a Feature Definition?

    Defines the properties used to control how a feature is to be displayed, annotated, computed, etc..

    These are customizeable.

    These should normally be created in advance by an administrator and propagated across an organization in order to standardize designs.

  • The MX Association of Australasia 28-30th July 2013

    Types of Feature Definitions 3 types of feature definitions are supported.

    Point Feature Lighting column Control Point Sign post

    Linear Feature Kerb & Gutter Wall Ditch

    Surface Feature Existing Ground Aggregate Base Asphalt Pavement

  • The MX Association of Australasia 28-30th July 2013

    Project Explorer Feature Definitions are created, modified and

    reviewed in MicroStations Project Explorer application.

    MicroStation File > Project Explorer > Civil Standards

    Note: Tab Display Controlled by Settings > Project Explorer

  • The MX Association of Australasia 28-30th July 2013

    Project Explorer

    The Civil Standards tab will show you what Feature Definitions are contained in your current file, as well as those in any specified DGN Libraries.

    Current File

    DGN Libraries

  • The MX Association of Australasia 28-30th July 2013

    Civil_ContentManagementDGNLiblist

    This variable is used to define which specific DGN Libraries are to be used to define your features.

    If this variable is not set, then all the DGN Libraries will be read and any that contain features will be listed.

  • The MX Association of Australasia 28-30th July 2013

    Link to Native (MX)

    Creates an actual link back to a user specified PSS File

  • The MX Association of Australasia 28-30th July 2013

    Link to Native (MX)

    Since the PSS has no categories/folders, none are available to be carried through to the Feature Definitions.

  • The MX Association of Australasia 28-30th July 2013

    Link to Native (MX)

    However, right-clicking gives you the ability to create categories.

  • The MX Association of Australasia 28-30th July 2013

    Link to Native (MX)

    MX String dimensions dictate the resulting mapping to Civil Feature Definitions.

    Linear

    All Feature strings are given Linear Feature Definitions

    All Section Strings are given both Linear and Surface Feature Definitions

    Point

    All Point String types are given Point Feature Definitions.

    Surface

    MX Triangulation.pts stylesets are given a surface feature definitions.

    Note - Cross and long section pss result in both linear and surface definitions

  • The MX Association of Australasia 28-30th July 2013

    Link to Native (MX) Feature Names must be unique. As such, each Feature Definition

    may contain multiple Feature Types.

    Any Surface Definition Automatically maps to an Element Template not the native style.

  • The MX Association of Australasia 28-30th July 2013

    Link to Native (MX)

    You could then use standard cut/paste techniques to re-organize your feature definitions.

  • The MX Association of Australasia 28-30th July 2013

    Link to Native (MX)

    Right-Clicking on any feature definition give you access to multiple options, including the ability to review the properties.

  • The MX Association of Australasia 28-30th July 2013

    Link to Native (MX) Notice that the Feature Definition is automatically linked back

    to the native style in the PSS. This is where it would get the symbology properties, annotation properties, etc.

  • The MX Association of Australasia 28-30th July 2013

    Link to Native (MX) If you wish to override this automatic designation with another

    selection from your PSS, you can do this by simply selecting another style from the drop down.

  • The MX Association of Australasia 28-30th July 2013

    Best Practice Linking to your legacy style files is intended to be a

    starting point to help you get your feature definitions created quickly.

    Best practice is to do this only once. After the initial linking has been done, any structural

    changes to the feature definition tree (new features, renaming of features, etc.) should be made directly in the DGN Lib.

    Note: An exception would be changes to symbology or annotation, which would be made in the legacy style file.

    Exercise Importing PSS and Creating Feature Definitions

  • The MX Association of Australasia 28-30th July 2013

    Objective Import Styleset to Create Feature Definitions and Review

    Open the project C:\MX Conference 2013\MXSS3 Civil Note this uses the example workspace and so Mxroad

    features are not available to use.

    Create a new DGN MXRoad Features.DGN Project Explorer > Feature Definitions > Link

    MXRoad.PSS Review results in Project Explorer and discuss Review Feature Definitions properties in Element Information

    Project Explorer > Feature Definitions > Link MFW Triangulation.pts Review Element Templates Add and configure Terrain Element Templates

    How do MX and the OpenRoads tools integrate?

  • The MX Association of Australasia 28-30th July 2013

    MX Configuration Essentials MX > View > Configuration

    General Active MX model

    File Management Seed files

    Changes to mx_seed_m_3d+2d.dgn

    Data Conversion Delete Strings from Model on Drop or Delete

  • The MX Association of Australasia 28-30th July 2013

    (Linear) Features Toolbar

    With no Active model all available features will be available. the feature does not maintain a link to the styleset this comes from the

    active model

    With no active MX model present and the feature does not call a element template but requires the pss to define its display it reverts to the configuration variable defining default styleset

    MX_DEFAULTCIVILSTYLESET=publicstyles/mxroad.pss

    # for untitled workspace

    The processes here are very similar to the MX conversion toolbar for converting CAD graphics to MX string features.

  • The MX Association of Australasia 28-30th July 2013

    (Linear) Features Toolbar

    The model picker is not the same as normal MX listings, so no right click options for model defaults etc. Use Display toolbar or similar.

    With a Active Model only features appropriate to that styleset will be listed. Exceptions to this rule

    Feature names must be unique

    Construction

    Make use of Use Active Feature

  • The MX Association of Australasia 28-30th July 2013

    Import from MX Import

    From file - browse to a model.fil

    From MX geom from Halgn, Valgn, Verat

    From Active MX project model.fil

    Import and Create Civil Rules Makes editable geometry

    Note

    G Strings as Alignments with Profile

    M Strings to 3D linear elements

  • The MX Association of Australasia 28-30th July 2013

    Export to MX

    The Active Model provides the storage model for export

    Hint - Use selection set for multiple features to the same model Note Refresh 1 will include ability to use Graphical Filters to be defined

    that will aid in selection and exporting completed corridor designs linear features

    Audit Trail

    Export Geometry Writes to the MX log Halgn, Valgn, Verat

    Writes to the MXData folder Halgn, Valgn, Verat Note it will overwrite but history is provided in the log file

    Import Geometry Writes Major Option Script information to the log file

    This can be captured and used in input files to push geometry from MX if required.

    Writes to the MXData folder Halgn, Valgn, Verat Note it will overwrite but history is provided in the log file

  • The MX Association of Australasia 28-30th July 2013

    Audit Trail / Input files MX option Script MX uses the major option script to suspend the MXengine and allows

    processing of external / CAD operations. This process was originally implemented to facilitate Final Drawings annotation and page layout as well as attachment of reference files.

    Script can be used to call Microstation key-in commands directly using commands and parameters.

    Syntax Script, key-in {command}, {parameter}

    The following example can be used to reset the view extents of the drawing. script,FIT VIEW EXTENDED 1

    Terrain Example script, terrainmodel import file=model.fil model=DESIGN edgemethod=NoRemove
