Bring your Vision to life

MicroStation is the only computer-aided design (CAD) software purpose-built for infrastructure design, helping architects and engineers like you bring their vision to life, present their designs to their clients, and deliver their projects to the community.

MicroStation is Infrastructure Design.

It's Simple, really.

MicroStation not only builds the foundation of infrastructure design projects, but is the foundation of your design and engineering solution. Providing you power, flexibility, and best-in-class tools, without requiring add-ons, MicroStation makes it easy to work the way you want, leaving you time to do what you do best. With MicroStation, minimize risks, accelerate automation, and win more work.


Create geospatially enabled 2D and 3D drawings for infrastructure projects, and deliver them on time and on budget, even as project complexities and scale increase.


Produce faster/better documents ready to communicate your design intent. Documents are industry compliant so you can stamp designs with ease and confidence.


A common environment connects your tools, data, and teams, so that you can reliably deliver on even the most demanding projects.


Work with native DGN and incorporate legacy data and file formats like DWG, and point-cloud data without conversions.


Work collaboratively on any size project without size restrictions, crashes, or complications, knowing your system will always be on.


Analyze and perform data visualizations on models based on their geometry or underlying attributes.


We’re an industry standard which means your documentation is always standards compliant.
