Until recently, cross sections tended to drive the design of our projects. They depicted an accurate representation of a model—one that we all generally grew accustom to. However with the advent of OpenRoads technology, cross sections eventually became what is more so a “byproduct” of our proposed design model, leaving the 3D model to drive design.
Introducing this topic as the basis for his closing…
Ian Rosam set the stage for establishing best practices using OpenRoads Geometry, addressing his comments to all users from novice through to expert.
What’s different in OpenRoads? The main characteristics of OpenRoads Geometry user will notice is functionality built on the concept of “Design Intent” and a more interactive and dynamic user experience.
A very popular lecture during all three LEARNing Conferences, Derricke Gray’s presentation today on best practices when generating final plan sets from from civil models is chock full of useful information for the experienced civil designer/project manager. In 45 minutes he covered a wide variety of the workflow details involved in creating plan & profile sheets from the traditional civil product geometry and element…
A topic that invariably comes up when talking Civil are the use of templates in the InRoads/OpenRoads design process. As a result, it is important to have a good “foundation” in templates, the focus of Volaree’s workshop: “Templates – Using and Editing” just concluded at the New Orleans Bentley LEARNing Conference.
During this hands-on workshop attendees had the opportunity to learn…
Your favorite trainers are not only teaching you the ins and outs of all things Civil, but they are also available at the LEARNing Conferences to answer all of your questions outside of the classroom.
The “Ask an Expert” zone at the New Orleans LEARNing Conference is your chance to speak directly to an expert in your field.
Who can you talk to this week?
Mike Wilson, Director, Software Development—Road, Rail…
Note: Some intermediate and advanced courses require users to take "QuickStart for Terrain & Geometry Using OpenRoads" and/or "QuickStart for Roadway Modeling using OpenRoads Technology" as a pre-requisite.

June 22: Templates - Using and Editing with Jeff MartinAlso offered on June 27
This course teaches how to efficiently modify and use existing templates, such as those delivered in the Bentley Civil Workspace, for your project situations. You will learn how to manage template libraries and edit templates to satisfy project specifications including minor edits such as…
During his Tuesday morning Creating a Realistic Model with Pavement Markings, Signs, and Other Objects lecture Derricke Gray, Civil Product Manager and #Bentley15 trainer, noted that when it comes to adding functionality to a basic OpenRoads model, Engineers are indeed just like everyone else.
“Putting visualization in the hands of the designer early in the process is a key benefit to OpenRoads,” said Derrick, “but engineers…
On Tuesday at the Road and Site LEARNing Conference, Joey LouAllen led the “Approach and Driveway Modeling” workshop where he showed OpenRoads concepts that can be applied when modeling intersecting approaches, secondary roads, and driveways. Among the topics covered:
Let’s face it, there’s no workaround for improving information mobility and data workflow between designers, engineers, and contractors. On a daily basis you encounter situations where you need to share information with others—information that is generated from the various applications you use.
From plans for permits, review, and phased submittals to visualization for public involvement and design review…
At Monday’s “Best Practice: Corridor Modeling” lecture Ian Rosam, Senior Product Manager-Road, Rail and Site Design at Bentley made it clear that despite rumors, referencing a Tweet made during the recent Indianapolis LEARNing Conference, he is not Joe Waxmonsky. Ian provided proof with a slightly dodgy photograph that proved this but did a slight resemblance between the two Bentley colleagues.
Bentley’s Resident Consultant, Don Lee, lead a packed room of LEARNing Conference attendees through a "QuickStart for Terrain & Geometry Using OpenRoads" workshop.
Don covered the use of legacy data (.tin, .dtm, or .fil files) in creating and viewing terrains, creating horizontal geometry and vertical geometry from PIs, and the advantages to using OpenRoads. Don acknowledged using OpenRoads is a transition…
Are you ready for what’s next in Bentley Civil software? Derricke Gray and Ian Rosam kicked off the Road & Site LEARNing Conference today, spotlighting soon-to-be-released SELECTseries 4 maintenance updates, Bentley Civil releases---including a revamped Power Rail Track as well as the new Subsurface Utility Design and Analysis (SUDA)---modeling enhancements, mobile platform strategy, and so much more.
Bentley's Director, Solutions Architecture, Russell Page, presented on the Transportation Asset Management Evolution at the #Bentley15 Road & Site LEARNing Conference, discussing how the process needs to be more connected to transportation planning for a more strategic approach to TAM. Read more in this article in the AssetWise APM Community.
Ian Rosam shares his insights at the #Bentley15 LEARNing Conferences on the advantages of integrated civil i-Models.
Derricke Gray and Ian Rosam share future direction for Bentley Civil software.
Recent OpenRoads Enhancements: Terrain, Modeling, Interoperabilitiy, Support for Chord definition, i-model and icm enhancements.
Wondering if you should join us at a Bentley CONNECTION Event in Philadelphia, Chicago, Los Angeles, or Houston? Check out the overview of SITEOPS below to see if your firm should be using this groundbreaking software!
In “Civil Product Update” (with Derricke Gray) you’ll hear about recent changes and future technologies as Bentley moves to the OpenRoads application.“Why are Integrated Civil i–Model’s a Better Option to Exchange Data?” shows how business data and design integrity of your 3D design is shared and distributed for optioneering, bidding, and construction purposes.…
