Using OpenRoads Designer for Production

OpenRoads Designer CONNECT Edition was announced by Bentley in November 2016. I'm trying to get a sense of how mature the product is for production use. I've been doing extensive research and will be moving into more rigorous testing to assess if the software can be used on full scale projects as the main design platform.

  • I agree with Dan S, it's not ready yet for final design or large plan set production yet.  We're using the program on a preliminary design system interchange project and the "design" part of the program is works well, but the plan production part of the program is pretty buggy.  The "dynamic" annotation tools are pretty bad and really don't work well in real-world scenarios.  Not sure if Bentley vetted ORD for real-world projects with short schedules and users of various skill sets.

    That's really pretty bad, since many  years we're waiting for this kind of feature
