Advance Your Bridge Design Workflows Up To 40%
Create a true BIM model at the beginning of a bridge project to improve design quality, constructability, and collaboration.
What is OpenBridge Designer?
OpenBridge Designer is a fully integrated application that produces deliverables derived directly from the bridge models. Use one product to create physical and analytical models throughout the lifecycle of all bridge types.
Create specific objects and information for bridge projects in one comprehensive, infrastructure specific application with automated modeling and analysis tools. No more scripting, workarounds, multiple applications, or specialists required.
Coordinate with multi-discipline teams to prevent conflicts early in the design phase. No more data transfers, no more communication lags, and no more cost overruns. Improve efficiency, quality, and costly delays with always up-to-date data.
Documentation And Constructability
Automate a comprehensive set of deliverables and continue to deliver 2D plans obtained from the 3D models, achieving greater productivity. Deliver plans, 3D design data, earthworks, reports, visualizations, BIM deliverables, and construction data to meet project requirements.
- Model, analyze, and design bridges
- Produce required deliverables
- Streamline workflow from beginning to end

Frequently Asked Questions
OpenBridge Designer provides the latest technology and capabilities to efficiently model, design, and produce project deliverables in a dynamic, interactive, and parametrically-enabled environment. This single application supports all aspects of a detailed bridge design including terrain, roadways, access ramps, and other related infrastructure assets. With OpenBridge Designer’s model-centric methodology, users will be efficient and reliable when managing changes to construction documents, such as clash detection, roadway geometry, and bridge geometry. Meet project demands on time, every time.
OpenBridge Designer provides the workflows, toolsets, and flexibility necessary to deal with real-life design scenarios. The application adapts to virtually any bridge design and maintenance workflow and is suitable for any concrete strength, volume, weight, structural steel grade, and beam type. Use a single product to create an interoperable physical and analytical model for steel and concrete bridges, which can be utilized throughout the bridge’s lifecycle.
The price of OpenBridge Designer varies per region. While there are various types of licensing available, a common choice is the 12-month practitioner license offered through Bentley’s eStore. When you purchase through the eStore, you get a Virtuoso Subscription. This means you get the software and “Keys” (tokens) to redeem for customizable training, mentoring, and consulting services.
No, OpenBridge Designer consolidates OpenBridge Modeler, with LEAP Bridge Concrete, LEAP Bridge Steel, RM Bridge RM Bridge Advanced, and RM Bridge Enterprise into one comprehensive bridge modelling, design, and analysis application.
Yes, OpenBridge Designer produces a wide array of deliverables such as deck elevations, beam-seat elevations, material quantities, cost estimates, and camber diagrams. The software also includes an input Echo report to facilitate the evaluation of multiple bridge alternatives, construction sequences, costs reports, and well-organized analysis and design reports.
OpenBridge Designer provides a single data environment that offers a practical way for project team members to exchange project information and share, reuse, and repurpose data throughout the lifecycle of the project to reduce the risk of design errors and construction errors. You can design all aspects of the project in one composite model and incorporate critical project data from all disciplines such as geotechnical, drainage, utilities, buildings, and more. You can use clash detection tools to identify errors model to model and element to element to eliminate potential issues before construction.
