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.

  • Is everyone using the latest Release? We've been using ORD for a major infrastructure project for the last year and apart for some bugs slipping their way through, like the mesh/linear element duplication issue and some profile issues, we're quite happy with it. Our biggest issue has been DWG exports, but this is a format we wish we weren't using anyway.

    Definitely a complete rethink on how you deliver your projects and a lot of pre-planning and setup, but my biggest gripe is with performance for large projects with many many reference files, especially when creating Cross Sections.
