OpenRoads Designer – Utilities

This training is designed to be an introduction to the Utilities tools available in Bentley’s OpenRoads Designer civil design software. We introduce new tools and workflows in the context of a simple road design project. The exercises cover concepts related to layout and 3D modeling of existing and proposed utilities, such as pressure pipes and cable runs. The course concludes with an overview of the tools available to review and share design information, including the development of construction plan documents. It is expected that you are already generally familiar with the tools and concepts found in OpenRoads Designer.
