Hello mates,
Is there any simpler way of converting drawings from bently' microstation format (dgn - v7 or v8) to AutoCAD's format (dwg or dxf) without installing microstation.

So you never were curious enough to look it up in AutoCAD's Help?

Every command and every procedure that one needs to use AutoCAD is included in AutoCAD's help but it becomes more clearer when someone paraphrases in more simpler terms to a beginner like me.

Sorry I don't know the easy answer either, but do a search on these news
groups. It's been discussed many times, even fairly recently.

HELP has three tabs, Contents, Index, and Search.

The last two are there to help quickly search through the first tab.

HELP>Index Tab>type DGN and explore.

Knowing where to go first is not an AutoCAD ability, just a reasonable
approach for anyone using something unfamiliar to look up the "Help" files.
Consider applying this to all things you are not familiar with that come
with user documentation, software/hardware/appliances and more.

Happy Cadding.

Ok thanks Dean. I have managed to find my way through. In case anybody else might be wondering, just type in the command "dgnimport".

Will the post by Pabber in the 2010 discussion help?

Nope. There is not a way for AutoCAD 2004 to import DGN to DWG. You need to upgrade your AutoCAD to at least 2006.
Or search on Google/yahoo for dgn to dwg. There is an AutoDWG batch converter that I'm using now.
