Introduction to 3D Modeling Using Microstation V8 is designed for students and others that want to learn the basics of developing 3D models using MicroStation V8. The book introduces 3D modeling using a series of tutorials and sample files to learn important techniques and concepts. The tutorials and accompanying exercises allow the reader to better understand the various concepts by actually working with the software. The book is targeted toward individuals beginning to explore using MicroStation for 3D modeling. In addition to an overview of MicroStation, it provides chapters on an introduction to working in 3d space, creating 3d models, positioning and locating points in 3d space, the development and manipulation of features and faces, view control in 3d, output using sheets, and improved visualization through the rendering of models.

The book contains over 400 illustrations that reinforce an understanding of the commands and tools used in creating, manipulating, managing, and displaying models. The accompanying multimedia CD provides a series of design files, still images, and animations that illustrate concepts and provide the basis for completing the tutorials that are an integral part of the material. Over 50 design files are included on the CD. The design files link directly to the tutorials in the book and were specifically prepared to allow hands-on experience with concepts of modeling.
