Current Issues

  • Following MicroStation element(s) moved by origin (single point) only:
    • CELL
    • TEXT
    • CONE (move by BASE point)
  • Following MicroStation element(s) that are converted to line strings by default (NOTE: SGRD_MAINTAIN_ELEMENT_TYPE1 will keep the following element types the same as the original):
    • ARC
    • CURVE
    • NOTE: The above element types are converted with a tolerance of 1 uor per master unit. All LINEAR elements are transformed with a tolerance of 0.
  • MicroStation COMPLEX CHAIN element always translated to LINESTRING
  • No transformation of MicroStation element(s): BSPLINE, SOLID, SURFACE, TAG
  • No transformation of MicroStation elements (i.e. SHAPE, CELL, SHARED CELL, etc) containing associated patterns (NOTE: Using the OFIX tool may resolve these issues).
  • No transformation of linear elements with 'less than' 2 points
  • Current transformation restricted to specific area (i.e. SnakeGrid 'XRAIL09', 'GWPBS09')
  • Locked MicroStation element(s) are reported but not moved
  • Raster file issues:
    • Raster file attachment(s) that are 'lost/invalid' are removed automatically (but not reported)
    • No transformation of embedded raster/image file elements
    • All attached raster/image files are converted to PNG files before being transformed and re-attached
  • Reference file issues:
    • Reference file attachment(s) that are 'lost/invalid' are removed automatically (but not reported)
    • Nested reference file attachments are not supported
  • No transformation of height/z coordinates (NOTE: A 3D V8 design file can be processed but all height/z coordinates will remain unchanged)
  • Only MicroStation design (DGN) files can be transformed (NOTE: If file type is either AutoCad DWG or DXF, then the file will need to be translated to MicroStation DGN).
  • No transformation of MicroStation Sheet models. A MicroStation Sheet is usually used for presentation purposes, or plot generation - therefore does not contain the coordinate range/information required by the SnakeGrid Transformer.
  • No transformation of MicroStation CELL elements which contain the following element(s): SOLID
  • The components within MicroStation 'unnamed' CELL elements are transformed as single elements - but remain 'grouped' within the single CELL element after transformation (e.g. a shape element with holes).
