MicroStation PowerDraft V8i
Premier 2D / 3D Drafting and Detailing for Infrastructure Projects
MicroStation PowerDraft is the premier application for the production of all types of project documentation for engineers, architects, geospatial professionals, constructors, and owners who need to document, detail, and map infrastructure projects.
As a companion product to information modeling products from Bentley and others, MicroStation PowerDraft users can easily and reliably incorporate existing data and document projects of any scale in order to produce precise physical and digital deliverables.
Its unmatched fidelity working with DWG and DGN data and extensive interoperability support for other data types like point clouds, geospatially referenced data, and raster imagery ensures that users can work seamlessly with an entire project team incorporating any information into their final hardcopy and digital deliverables.
In addition to the traditional printed drawings and details, MicroStation PowerDraft enables the production of information-rich PDFs, innovative hypermodels, large plots, and plot sets. MicroStation PowerDraft is a cost-effective and extremely robust tool that meets the documentation needs of infrastructure teams across every discipline.
Temporary Offer: Trade-in your existing Autodesk perpetual license software such as AutoCAD on ANY Bentley perpetual license software such as MicroStation, PowerDraft or MAXSURF.
Upgrade Your Autodesk Perpetual Licenses
If you currently own Autodesk perpetual licenses, you are aware that Autodesk stopped selling perpetual licenses and upgrades for individual applications after January 31, 2016. And, Autodesk will no longer offer perpetual licenses and upgrades for suites after July 31, 2016. A perpetual license is a valuable asset, but if it cannot be upgraded it loses all of its value.
Bentley has offered perpetual licenses and term license subscriptions for many years. Most of our user organizations leverage both licensing models. We believe that you, not us, should decide what works best for your organization.
Bentley will continue to offer perpetual licenses. You will not lose this choice with Bentley.
