I have a bridge that has a irregular deck due to a ramp entering onto the bridge. Because the deck is wider at the ramp entrance we have added an extra beam in this area. This extra beam does not reach a full span from support line to support line. Instead, the beam terminates in the middle of the span onto a perpendicular beam that connects to the two beams on ether side of the extra beam. Can this be modeled in OBM? Right now a beam that does not reach support line to support line crashes the software when I click verify.
A girder needs to be placed from one support line to support line and currently it is not possible to terminate the beam in the middle and connect to perpendicular beam that connects to the two beams on ether side of the extra beam .

Thankyou Vinay for letting me know. I cant even tell you how much time I have spent trying to get this to work. So much for using the Open Bridge Designer BIM package to model a bridge and export to analysis software. Hey Bentley, what a letdown. I have A LOT of people depending on my model and what am I supposed to tell them?
