(Update: We have postgis and ogr2ogr (etc.) but not any ESRI or Microstation software.)
I just got DGN v8i files and I can't find any free way to convert them to... anything else.
OpenDGNViewer (aka DGNDirect) appears to be able to view but not export.
I really would be happy with any other format:
- DGN v7
Crazy how difficult it seems to be to work with what is apparently a standard in many municipalities.
