About this Configuration
This page was only updated to adjust the version of MicroStation 2004 Edition. In the fall of 2005, we migrated to MicroStation 2004 Edition and MX for Windows 2004 Edition. All previous upgrades have been done while maintaining a configuration very similar to the configuration we used for the very first version of MicroStation and MX created in 1999. Some adjustments have been made along the way, but we never started taking advantage of MicroStation V8's unlimited level structure, cube size, library files, etc.
In 2006 we began to update our configuration of MicroStation V8.5 (2004 Edition) for use with InRoads. We decided this was the perfect time to reestablish our MicroStation configuration to take advantage of some of the new enhancements within MicroStation V8 and also to take full advantage of InRoads. We created a separate configuration specifically for InRoads projects.
Please Note: We are no longer making adjustments to V8.1 configuration. All MaineDOT users are running V8.5 (2004 Edition).
Our MicroStation configuration includes numerous additions to the menu structure. However, all original selections, as provided by Bentley, are still included. We have made extensive use of Settings Manager and macros.
The files listed below should provide all the resources necessary to add the MaineDOT configuration to an existing MicroStation installation. We have designed our configuration such that our files are kept separately from Bentley's, and from any other configuration you might be using.
Due to the size of the data to be made available, we have split off some of the resources into separate zip files. Our configuration includes support for US Customary units, as well as metric units. All the following files are ZIP files.
The following ZIP file contains an install set for MaineDOT's Plan Sheet Renumbering Utility. This utility provides an easy way to organize plan sheets. Our "sheet file" DGN names begin with a 3 digit numerical prefix and an underscore. This program allows the user to arrange or rearrange the order of the sheets, insert placeholders, etc., then automatically rename the sheet files to reflect the new order in the updated prefixes.
The following files contain selected portions of our resources that you can get without having to download the entire !msv8conf.zip file. These can be used when you are not installing our full configuration or when you are looking to update only certain files. Please note that these are the files for MicroStation V8. All the following files are ZIP files.
We are now sharing the files and instructions required to make the same kind of map clips that we use for Location Maps on title sheets, and for various other purposes. Read, print or download the instructions for using these maps. (The instructions are also included in locmap.zip in a Microsoft Word file.) All the following files are ZIP files.
We are now sharing the templates and instructions required to make the same kind of project folder structure that we use in-house. The templates have a number of seed files built-in. Read, print or download the Project Setup Instructions for using these templates. All the following files are ZIP files.
The following ZIP file contains four Microsoft Word documents that are used as the starting text for the General Notes in our plan sheets. All the following files are ZIP files.
The following ZIP file contains eight Microsoft Excel spreadsheets that are used in developing Indexes, Drainage Sheets, Earthwork Sheets and Estimates. All the following files are ZIP files.
