Conceptual Rail Design Software

Rapid conceptual designs

Quick-start rail projects by rapidly creating conceptual designs and improving the decision-making process.

What is OpenRail ConceptStation?

OpenRail ConceptStation gives you rail, electrification, tunnel, and bridge conceptual design capabilities to help you create intelligent models in context. Evaluate conceptual design options with real-world data and cost analysis to rapidly determine optimal designs. Utilize data acquisition, reality modeling, and conceptual design to eliminate high-cost and high-risk items in the preliminary and planning design stages of your rail network projects. Using OpenRail ConceptStation, you can:

  • Locate and download online, data-rich context from a variety of sources, such as point clouds, 3D reality meshes, terrain data, images, and geospatial information to bring real-world settings to your rail project.
  • Use 3D modeling with easy-to-use engineering sketching capabilities to quickly conceptualize rail, electrification, tunnel, and bridge designs.
  • Rapidly generate multiple design scenarios with associated project costs, and share with project teams and stakeholders to choose the best option.
  • Share realistic visualizations with the public and stakeholders to gather feedback, improve public engagements, and speed project approvals.
  • Evaluate Viable Track Alternatives

    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.

  • Add Digital Context

    Add digital context and provide stunning deliverables

    Jump-start the conceptual design process by locating and downloading data-rich context information for a given location or use 3D output from 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.

    You can 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.

  • Design Conceptual Electrification Systems

    Design conceptual 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 design standards.
