OpenRoads Designer – Site Design

Designed to build on lessons and concepts learned in the introductory course titled OpenRoads Fundamentals. This is advanced training which assumes that the student already possesses a basic knowledge of Bentley’s OpenRoads technology, workflows and tools. The goal is to expand your knowledge to be able to tackle more advanced designs. Workflows used for site design, as opposed to linear road design, are emphasized in many of the exercises. We do not cover design fundamentals, rather we look at OpenRoads tools, workflows, and techniques which will allow you to accomplish the more advanced site modeling scenarios.
