Really, wich discipline does not require a minimum site design ?
It should be in the power plateform.
I have several Open Buidling Designer - expensives- licenses and i should add on top of this a new paid module to design the site around my building ?? Come on..
Hello Chris,Open Sites is a different product, which comes under Civil Design. A separate product needs a separate license. It is just an companion application that can be installed while installing OBD. See the attached image.
Also if you want to have the site around your building then you can do that by attaching point clouds data inside OBD. I hope this helps your query.
Thank you Alifur,
but i guess you understood my question. I want to be able to design a simple terrain around my building. Clean topography, some roads and walls. Revit can do that easily. Nothing justifying an heavy and expansive add-on. Point Cloud are useless if you can edit them near your project.
I already discuss about this in the Microstation Forum Ideas section. I think basic terrain manipulation in Microstation is terrible and is missing tools to create a Terrain Model entity
I don't know much about terrain modeling, but would the Mesh From Contours tool be sufficient for the site aspect?

I guess, even when your answer is correct, it's not what chris Cher asked about.
In my opinion the question was about tools allowing site design, which means to build DTM and optionally other objects.

Really? I am not building engineer, but surveyor formerly, and I do not know about any my customer that would accept points cloud as "site design". Point clouds are helpful often, but for sure not as replacement of vector site design.

My knowledge of OpenRoads Designer is limited, but I am pretty sure it contains a wide set of tools for site design as well as for survey tasks (to build DTM from different sources etc.).
