MicroStation/J enables engineering information technology users to create more comprehensive engineering models and share information within their enterprises in ways not previously possible. This book will continue Yarwood's successful style, giving students and new users a thorough grounding in the basics of the software, supported by plentiful worked examples and exercises.

MicroStation is a CAD (computer-aided design) software in world-wide use. Written in a friendly and approachable style, this text will give students and novice users a thorough grounding in the basics of the software. Assuming no previous knowledge, the text is supported by many worked examples and exercises, which allow the reader to practice the techniques presented. The book is illustrated throughout with screen shots, example drawings and color plates, which demonstrate clearly the use and capabilities of the package. Although written primarily for engineering and building drawing students, it should also be valuable in any course where the software is used.
