PowerDraft Student Software

PowerDraft is a slightly reduced-function version of MicroStation produced by Bentley, Inc.   PowerDraft has a lower price point than full MicroStation versions, and is available free to students registered in an academic program.

We have an arrangement with Bentley which allows students registered in MicroStation distance-education courses through ´╗┐Mohawk College to access PowerDraft software at no charge.  For further information, please contact us directly.

PowerDraft is a valuable learning and teaching aid and should be fully utilized by students in all design areas.

Our Connect and V8i 2D Level 1 and Level 2 training manuals work extremely well with PowerDraft and minimal adjustment is necessary from the full version instruction.    However, since PowerDraft has only basic 3D functionality, our 3D Level 3 manual is of minimal use for this software version.   See the MicroStation links in the page header for our training manuals.
