The April 18, 2014 release of ODOT’s CADD Standards includes the first release of new CADD Standards for use with Bentley’s OpenRoads Technology. With the release of these standards, ODOT has changed the names of the User Configuration File and the Project Configuration File to ODOT_OpenRoads.ucf and ODOT_OpenRoads.pcf, respectively. ODOT will use this configuration naming for ongoing Bentley SELECTSeries 3 and Open Roads development and will no longer use the ODOTV8iSS3 configuration files released previously. These standards were developed using the following software versions:
MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries 3) 08.11.09.578
Bentley GEOPAK Suite V8i (SELECTseries 3) 08.11.09.674
Windows 7 Enterprise, Service Pack 1
At this time, the released files are specific to Bentley’s OpenRoads Survey software. Standards for the OpenRoads civil tools will be released at a later date.
It should be noted that these files were developed using a GEOPAK Suite software installation. ODOT has not tested these files with a PowerGEOPAK software installation.
OpenRoads technology represents the continued evolution of merging functionality for Bentley’s road design, drainage analysis and design, data input and reduction, and bridge modeling products. This shared technology is embedded in InRoads, GEOPAK, MXROAD, and PowerCivil. It expands these products to include information-rich 3D modeling integrated with CAD, mapping, GIS, and business tools like PDFs, i-models, and hypermodels.
