    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Post here if you're interested in a Microstation Forum on CADTutor.

    It deffinately shows. I'm currently with microstation, and if I were to list a disadvantage to AutoCAD first one I would put - "No CADTutor Forum"

    Aren't there any equivalent Microstation forums out there? Are there ANY Microstation forums?

    Only one I've found is Be Communities (Bentley's) - I shouldn't knock it, they've been quite helpful on there. It's just not the same though.

    I found that one but it didn't seem too lively. No posts in the last 9 days and quite a few with no replies. Is that because the Microstation community is relatively small or because that forum isn't popular? I suppose the question in the back of my mind is; "would a Microstation forum on this board be of any use?"

    Maybe a new thread on this?

    I'd be happy about it, although my initial question would be, where will the people able to answer questions come from? Unlively MS forums exist (it doesn't look like many people use http://microstationtips.com/forum/ which is a top google search item).

    Yes, I looked at that one too - it's all but dead. It might just mean that there isn't a critical mass of Microstation users that would keep a lively forum going. I know many of the members here have experience of both systems - maybe we could kick something off.

    I'll move this discussion to a new thread and see if there's any interest.

    I would say the former, and getting smaller.... although many Microstation users will tell you it is because the software is great and they never have problems to discuss.... :-)

    Wouldn't it be great to see some global stats on this. The reason we use MS here is because all our clients use it, and I know some big companies in aus who use it too. Getting smaller? Maybe it really is the later - although I always have microstation questions, it's just finding someone to answer them that is the problem!
