Easy title block management


Purpose of Title Block Manager

Have MicroStation V7, V8 V8/XM and V8i title blocks that you need to make changes to, but don’t have time to do it manually? Axiom’s Title Block Manager is the complete title block management system that ensures the consistency of the look and content of your project title blocks, by automating batch changes to them.

Abe Arollo of Aztec Engineering in Arizona, talks about how he was able to reduce costs and improve productivity with Title Block Manager.

Manage pre-existing MicroStation title blocks

MicroStation Title Block Manager can intelligently read a batch of design files and distinguish between elements in the design and those in the title block. Once the MicroStation title block elements are found, Title Block Manager finds the values within the title block and attaches a Title Block Manager-specific linkage to them. This feature dramatically cuts down the time it takes to perform mundane tasks like modifying sheet numbers or adding revision data into a title block.

Update MicroStation title blocks from Excel or Access

Title Block Manager creates a link between MicroStation title block information in MicroStation and either an Excel spreadsheet or an Access table. This link allows for the automatic updating of title block data from changes made to the spreadsheet or database and vice versa. For example, you can automatically update sheet numbers throughout a project when you add a new sheet mid-project.

MicroStation title block templates

MicroStation title blocks templates are stored as cells in a cell library by Title Block Manager, which allows you to easily access these cell libraries from its main dialog box. By using templates, you can ensure the consistency of the look of your title blocks.

Components of Title Block Manager

TBAdmin's main dialog box

MicroStation Title Block Administrator’s main dialog box

MicroStation Title Block Administrator is utilized for all batch processing and for the initial creation of each title block cell.

TBClient’s main dialog box

MicroStation Title Block Client’s main dialog box

All MicroStaion title block cells in a design file are placed, modified and listed using Title Block Client .

With MicroStation Title Block Client, you can select a title block from a pre-approved list of title blocks and, using a wizard-like process, easily fill in the data.
