Here are three different ways to place barriers in OpenBridge Modeler
Using "Place Barrier" command
Library of barrier templates can be used to model and place standard concrete barriers quickly.
Transfer to Analytics (LEAP) is supported.
Accurate Quantities, and costs when appropriate Materials are specified.
Using "Place Accessories" by Path command
Place cells using the "Both" option, i.e. number and distance.
Allows the modeling of more complex barriers (with mix of steel barriers and concrete) but repetitive barrier shape. Some loss of accuracy, due to non-conformance to deck shape.
No transfer to Analytics.
Quantity report limited to reporting number of units.
Using 3D Line Style
Use the Extract Edge command to extract a line representing the edge of the deck. Then change the LineStyle to a 3D shape. OBM ships the default 3D line styles as OpenRoads, but new line styles can be created and saved as well.
No quantity reports.
