either have the one who sent you the files convert them to dwg format
(microstation does that) and resend them or find someone with acad map to do it
for you.

Hi Chreese2,

 

See my posts of 3-06-2003 in "Save in
R14".  MicroStation v8.1 Evaluation can be obtained from Bentley on CD
(they're happy to send it out).  It runs for 15 minutes at a time, can open
and resave several large AutoCAD or MicroStation files before shutting
down, and can read and saveas AutoCAD v 2.6 through 2002.  This is how
we translate files between the MicroStation and AutoCAD users in our
office.  (We own MS, we just haven't got the network licensing going
yet.)

 

Hope this helps,

 

Shawn

Our company uses a program called DGNLink 6 -
Autocad / Micorstation Translator to convert Mircrostation files to Autocad
files.
