OpenRoads Primer – This foundational material lays down the groundwork for all things OpenRoads in four sections and is a critical component for moving into this new software. The book covers the new Ribbon; the key aspects of MicroStation and their use in the OpenRoads world; the soon to be legendary section on OpenRoads Interaction and the underlying foundation to Rules and Design Intent; as well as a focused section on exactly what a user needs to know about Configuration.
Essentials – This is the core of OpenRoads currently covering the main topics of Terrains, Geometry, Templates and Modeling. This volume will address each of these topics from basic to advanced and is presented like our earlier InRoads material in the form of hands-on with our sample files with integrated reference material describing the tools and functions being used.
Drainage – This volume focuses on OpenRoads Drainage & Utilities (DU). The main topics covered in this book include: understanding and interacting with the DU ribbon menus; understanding settings; creating Storm Data; importing utility information; layout of drainage system elements; Automatic Design and Network Analysis; Profiles and Flex Tables; channel design and corridor modeling; pond grading; and annotation of plans and profiles. Hands-on exercises with sample files are included. This volume covers all the essentials to enable immediate productivity.
