OpenBridge Modeler CONNECT Edition is 3D bridge platform within the context of an overall transportation project.
OpenBridge Modeler CONNECT Edition functionalities,
OpenBridge Modeler CONNECT Edition is for rapid and iterative computational design.
Calibrate design to terrain, roadways, access ramps, and related infrastructure by directly leveraging Bentley’s civil design applications.
Enliven designs and enhance visualization with lifelike renderings.
Minimize costly construction delays with traffic and construction simulations.
Control costs by using clash detection capabilities to reduce interference problems, before construction begins.
*** OpenBridge Modeler CONNECT Edition is working on the MicroStation CONNECT Edition platform and OpenRoads with OpenBridge Modeler CONNECT Edition, OBM CE.
3D parametric bridge modeling focusing on:
Segmental bridges (span-by-span and balanced cantilever)
Box girder bridges
Prestressed concrete girder bridges
Steel girder bridges
Extensive substructure modeling
- Piers (multi-column, pile bents, wall piers, & custom piers)
- Abutments (stem wall and pile cap)
- Bearings and bearing seats
Reference or import of civil data, from legacy Civil products or OpenRoads Designer
Horizontal alignment, vertical profile, terrain
From GEOPAK, InRoads, MXRoad native files
Civil consensus model
Bearing seat elevations
Bridge Analysis Tools such as RM Bridge, LEAP Bridge
Detailing Software such as ProStructures
Perform Bridge Cash Detection
Reuse civil data obtained directly from Bentley road products such as GEOPAK, Bentley InRoads, or MXROAD, and import roadway information and ground data from LandXML files.
Exchange project information including bridge geometry, materials, loads, prestressing strand pattern, and shear reinforcement to improve decision making. Streamline engineering content management with real-time collaboration and share, reuse, and repurpose data throughout the bridge lifecycle to minimize risk of design error and construction issues.
Accelerate your bridge designs by applying innovative, visual processes that quickly generate the information required, from multiple disciplines to make engineering decisions. Leverage data interoperability to visually determine how your proposed bridge may impact existing and proposed project elements.
Generate detailed reports. Create 3D models and 2D drawings for sections, elevations, and framing plans.
Perform robust analysis and design code verification to ensure that the bridge design conforms to industry standards by connecting to LEAP Bridge and RM Bridge.
Develop detailed rebar designs, including bar marks, schedules, quantities, and drawings by connecting to ProStructures.
Respond to project changes by effortlessly updating the intelligent bridge model and leveraging built-in parametric relationships between bridge components.
Mitigate risk by performing conflict analysis of the bridge structure with existing infrastructure to save time, eliminate building errors, and reduce project costs. View clashes in 3D or in table format. Detect clashes with reinforcing steel and other embedments. Check for required minimum clearances between adjacent structures and roadways.
Exchange project models and information using i-models. With i-models, you can implement unique and powerful workflows for information sharing, distribution, and design review. These workflows can be further enhanced using ProjectWise and other products and services that leverage the power of i-models.
Develop even the most complex design models with a wide range of design modeling capabilities, including surface, mesh, feature, and solid modeling. Build parametric functional components with predefined variations to easily find and manage many similar components. Use drawing extraction features, which automatically immerse drawings within models for improved clarity and streamlined documentation workflows.
