3D Bridge Modeling at Its Best

Develop intelligent 3D bridge models within the context of an overall transportation project using OpenBridge Modeler for rapid and iterative design. Calibrate design to terrain, roadways, access ramps, and related infrastructure. Enliven designs and enhance visualization with lifelike renderings. Minimize costly construction delays with traffic and construction simulations. Control costs by using clash detection tools to reduce interference problems, before construction begins.

Easily manage design changes with built-in, user-defined relationships among bridge components and referenced DGN models. Generate complete bridge geometry reports, including civil and bridge element reports, deck and beam seat elevations, quantities and cost estimates. Create 3D models and 2D drawings for sections, elevations, and framing plans.  Get the right information in the right hands and empower project stakeholders to collectively deliver quality bridge projects on time and under budget.

OpenBridge Modeler is very easy for bridge designers to use because you input all of your parameters like you would in an analysis program and the software generates the graphical model for you.  You don’t have to be a CAD expert to use the program, but yet it still has the familiar look of MicroStation.
