Reading a DGN file is a big problem for me. I tried more and more but can't find a way to read a dgn(v8) file by VB.Net. After many search, i found out that GDAL can read and write dgn file, but i 'm not able to use it. Can anyone help me to do that ?
I am an old school dgn user - to use a .dgn file in any other program other than microstation - it must first be exported as a .dxf
