Maryland SHA has recompiled its CAD Standards workspace for use with all versions of MicroStation, including XM and V8i. This is not meant as an endorsement of these versions, as most SHA offices are still using MicroStation 2004. However, we understand that hardware and software considerations compel many consultants to use the newer versions, and so provide this workspace as a courtesy. That said, please note the following:
Unlike previous workspace updates, the zip file below contains a complete workspace and should be used to replace (not supplement) your existing SHA workspace.
