  • Design electrification systems

    • Enhance your conceptual track designs with overhead line electrification systems from libraries of masts and portals catering for single and double cantilevers and wire runs with stagger and overlaps, all while adhering to industry design standards.

  • Evaluate viable track alternatives

    • Generate multiple design scenarios with associated costs for better decision making. Quickly evaluate designs to optimize rail, electrification, tunnel, and bridge designs to address criteria such as clearances and cost assessment for each concept. Input your own historical financial model to ensure realistic cost information as you determine the best alternative to move forward into detailed design.
  • Incorporate contextual information including reality meshes

    • Jump-start the conceptual design process by locating and downloading data-rich context information for a given location or use 3D output from Bentley ContextCapture to model in a real-world setting. Add data you already have such as GIS and DGN to get more detail in your 3D models.
  • Layout conceptual track designs

    • Design your railway with object-oriented capabilities to create track geometry for mainline, yards, stations, and sidings. Add turnouts, crossovers, and other furniture in hours not days using engineering-friendly design capabilities, all while adhering to industry design standards.
  • Render in real-time with cinematic quality

    • Create stunning photo-realistic visualizations in seconds using dynamic immersive visualization engine platform providing natural looking light and shadows, real-time global illumination, IES point and spotlights, lens flares, and luminous materials. Interactively adjust time of day, add lens flares, and apply depth of field while benefiting from highly accurate reflections, anti-aliasing, and motion blur.
