OpenRoads Benching Template

I am trying to use OpenRoads to add benching to my roadway model.  The goal is to have the model display the benching and also be able to use it for earthwork volumes.  The image below is what I am trying to create.

  • Hi Ty,

    The 'Rock, Class R-4' must be defined as a closed component. You can use an end condition to tie to the existing ground, then point control the 'Rock, Class R-4' component to the points on the right side. Without knowing what bench constraints are on the left side of the 'Rock, Class R-4' component it is impossible to say what to do. Are the bench elevations fixed or defined? Assuming the bench elevations are not fixed you probably are going to need to take advantage of both Horizontal Max/Min and Vertical Max/Min constraints in conjunction with Null points serving as control points. If the bench elevations are fixed this becomes a much easier problem; no need for Vertical Max/Min constraints. Not sure this helps much, but it is best I can do with information provided. 


  • This is helpful information.  The benching will not have set elevations, but this is the typical benching detail for the project.  I am not sure if this will help.
