Migrating from Microstation to AutoCAD...

Migrating from Microstation to AutoCAD...

Migrating from Microstation to AutoCAD...

(OP)
Has anyone done this before?

It is looking like I am going to have to make the jump. It's going to be painfull because I have used Microstaion for years now.

Does anyone know of any resources for doing this? There seem to be books for people going from AutoCAD to Microstation, but not the other way.

Any advice would be appreciated!

Thanks

RE: Migrating from Microstation to AutoCAD...

I find AutoCAD much more intuitive than Microstation, and if you're going to be using 2009, the Ribbon will get you started (hover over icons for tool tips) and F1 will be your best friend in the world. I want to stab myself every time I open Microstation because it's so obfuscating.

Thank you for your reply. That sounds promising!

I've started doing some AutoCAD tutorials, and it's not turning out to be as stressfull as I thought it would be to switch. So far, from what I've seen I like AutoCAD!
