It is a FAQ from new admins and some users on what should they use or install for their specific workflow: OpenBridge Modeler or OpenBridge Designer? While OpenBridge Modeler is a 3D parametric modeling software for bridges, OpenBridge Designer is a single product that creates interoperable physical and analytical models.
So, what are the differences? First, OpenBridge Modeler is included inside OpenBridge Designer, therefore, users can achieve more with OpenBridge Designer. Though, sometimes, it is not what's necessary as OpenBridge Modeler already integrates with civil design applications and leverages enhanced visualization for creating 3D bridge models within the context of an overall transportation project.
