MicroStation PowerDraft - 2D / 3D Drafting and Detailing
Ph: 1300 762 614

What is PowerDraft (officially MicroStation PowerDraft)

PowerDraft is a CAD software explicitly designed for infrastructure projects including utilities, buildings, transport (road and rail), bridges, power plants etc. PowerDraft is used to prepare detail designs and 2D /3D drafting.

PowerDraft is used 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, PowerDraft users can easily and reliably incorporate existing data and document projects of any scale in order to produce precise physical and digital deliverables.

Who Uses PowerDraft

PowerDraft is used predominantly by consultants and contractors to the major firms for whom the best in class MicroStation is their standard.

Key Features

Some of the key features of PowerDraft are:
• Priced roughly half that of MicroStation - call 1300 762 614 for latest pricing
• Utilises the same file format as MicroStation and includes all of the 2D functions found in MicroStation
• Can produce basic 3D models while intended for the detailing and drafting function
• Sits extremely well alongside MicroStation where key designers utilise full 3D MicroStation (or InRoads, AECOsim, etc), supported by detailers who can cost effectively produce the detail designs with this application

Compelling reasons to buy PowerDraft

PowerDraft is a great product for those companies that do not need full 3D modeling. If that is you, here are some reasons why you should buy PowerDraft:
• To be compatible with major organisations and engineering firms
• To be able to handle large infrastructure projects
• To be able to easily compose files from parts received in different formats, including legacy formats of other software
• To be able to deliver finished results in industry standard formats
