The Year in Infrastructure 2016 Conference – Bentley Systems, Incorporated, a leading global provider of comprehensive software solutions for advancing infrastructure, today announced that OpenRoads Designer CONNECT Edition will be available for Early Access on December 1, 2016. OpenRoads CONNECT Edition is the successor to Bentley’s industry leading civil engineering brands InRoads, GEOPAK, MX, and PowerCivil.

OpenRoads Designer is a comprehensive, multi-discipline 3D modeling application to advance the delivery of roadway projects from conceptual design through construction. OpenRoads Designer blends traditional engineering workflows for plan, profile, and cross-sections with 3D parametric modeling to enable the model-centric creation of all design deliverables.

OpenRoads Designer supports all aspects of a detailed roadway design including survey, geotechnical, drainage, subsurface utilities, terrain, road, roadway furniture, and more. The incorporation of reality meshes, imagery, point cloud, and other geocoordinated data sources can provide the continuous context of real-world conditions throughout the design and construction lifecycle.

OpenRoads Designer completes the convergence of InRoads, GEOPAK, MX, and PowerCivil, but adds many powerful new innovations, including:

Designs created in OpenRoads Designer benefit from BIM Review through OpenRoads Navigator, in the office, in the field, and at the site. OpenRoads Navigator enables not only visualization and review of 3D designs, but also status visibility—allowing dispersed teams to progress approvals and the resolution of issues. 

Bhupinder Singh, chief product officer, Bentley Systems, said, “OpenRoads CONNECT Edition is the culmination of three decades of Bentley leadership and experience gained from thousands of roadway projects around the world. We have conscientiously preserved concepts and continuity from GEOPAK, InRoads, and MX—but the BIM advancements in OpenRoads Designer CONNECT Edition are so compelling that we and our users are excited to now take full advantage of this next generation in roadway design software.”
