How to fix odd or unexpected behavior in your MicroStation files
Clearwater, Florida, USA — When design files become crippled with display problems, crash or can’t be opened, you automatically start adding time and cost to your projects. Due to a variety of reasons that can’t be predicted or controlled by a CAD user, MicroStation V8, XM and V8i tables (such as level table, font table, line style name table, definition table, text style table, dimension style table, multi-line style table and filter table) can become corrupted. Fortunately, FileFixer continues to grow every year with powerful new features that fix virtually every type of corruption that has been found in MicroStation design files.
FileFixer’s most recent enhancement allows users to replace — from a designated MicroStation seed file — any of the many tables that make up MicroStation design files (as shown in Figure 2). Corruption in MicroStation tables can cause display problems, files that can’t be opened or files that unload without warning until the corruption is resolved. In a few quick steps, FileFixer can resolve these issues and give you a healthy, working file with no display problems.
What Else Does FileFixer Solve?
Corruption, when it occurs, invariably gets in the way of project completion and drains profit and progress. Corruption always adds time and cost to your projects. In addition to fixing design files that just wouldn’t open, FileFixer fixes files that have unselectable models, elements on undefined levels, “zingers” (elements that shoot off the edge of the design plane) that you can’t select, bad results from the “fit view” command and unwanted plotting results. These are all symptoms of MicroStation design file corruption and can be quickly and easily resolved with FileFixer.
For more than two decades, FileFixer has been the tool of choice by CAD managers and CAD users alike to fix these issues. FileFixer also gives you the exact technical data you need in order to understand what’s wrong with your MicroStation V8, XM and V8i files and can automatically fix them fast!
