Parametric bridge modeling software

Take Control of your bridge project

Unify project teams and stakeholders through a dynamic environment

What is OpenBridge Modeler?

OpenBridge Modeler incorporates multidisciplinary data into a single model so you can efficiently design and produce project deliverables in an interactive environment. With OpenBridge Modeler, it’s easy to work hand in hand with roadway engineers, bridge engineers, and contractors throughout the project lifecycle. You can reference existing conditions to improve accuracy, eliminate redundant data entry, and detect constructability issues or conflicts early on. This is your top choice for modeling bridges and saving time!

Create intelligent 3D Models

  • Work smarter with 3D parametric modeling and iterative computational design to create an intelligent 3D BIM model
  • Plan construction stages and construction methodology to optimize your activities in the field
  • Reduce errors and minimize risk by creating an interoperable physical and analytical model that can be used throughout the bridge lifecycle

Reduce Cost and Changes

  • Reuse stakeholder data to ensure up-to-date geometry, and survey information within one model
  • Optimize design to terrain, roadways, access ramps, and related infrastructure by directly leveraging data from Bentley’s civil design software
  • Use clash detection with structures, objects, and underground utilities to eliminate problems before construction begins

Visualize 3D Models

  • Create stunning, real-world visuals to communicate design intent and promote the benefits of your project
  • Make changes on the fly during the review process and easily incorporate stakeholder feedback into your design
  • Identify construction issues before they occur with clash detection

User Quote

“Bentley software guarantees an excellent structural performance in operation and reduces unforeseen adjustments during construction, especially relevant due to the geometrical complexity of segmental bridges.”

Frequently Asked Questions

OpenBridge Modeler provides 3D parametric modeling capabilities and incorporates multi-disciplinary data into a single model to efficiently design, and produce project deliverables in a dynamic and interactive environment.

OpenBridge Modeler unifies roadway engineers, bridge engineers, and contractors from the earliest stages of a bridge project through design revisions and beyond. Referencing existing conditions improves accuracy, eliminates redundant data entry, and identifies constructability issues and conflicts early on.

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.

The price of OpenBridge Modeler 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.

One-time purchase with support

Perpetual License with SELECT

A perpetual license of Bentley software is a one-time purchase, with a yearly maintenance subscription, called SELECT. This includes 24/7/365 technical support, learning resources, and the ability to exchange licenses for other software once a year. With SELECT, you will benefit from:

  • License pooling, so you can access your software from multiple computers.
  • Access additional Bentley software with Term Licenses, which allow you to pay for what you use without the upfront cost of purchasing a perpetual license.

Annual renewal quotes are delivered directly to your inbox, and our experienced Renewal Representatives are available to answer your questions and guide you through any changes you’d like to make.
