 Complete ODOTcadd Standards for MicroStation and GEOPAK (SELECTseries 4)

The July 2017 CADD standards update represents the latest release of the ODOTcadd Standards for MicroStation and GEOPAK V8i (SELECTseries 4). The standards are continuously improved and subject to change with future updates.

For this update, the GEOPAK/PowerGEOPAK related standards for the OpenRoads technology have been updated using the SELECTseries 4 version of the software and are therefore incompatible with GEOPAK/PowerGEOPAK (SELECTseries 3).
The following CAD software versions can be used with the ODOTcadd Standards:
MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries 3 and 4)
PowerGEOPAK V8i (SELECTseries 4)
GEOPAK Civil Engineering Suite (SELECTseries 4)
The ODOTcadd Standards are delivered as a single executable file.  They can be installed as a new FULL set of standards or as a quarterly patch update.  The patch install will not work if the currently installed version is not up to date (previous January 2017 CADD Standards installed).
8.1.2017  -  LineStyle fix for the July 2017 Update!!!
The July 21st 2017 ODOTcadd Standards Update included an update to the ODOT_Linestyles.rsc file. This file was updated to have all pavement marking linestyles represent the physical width of the pavement marking. After a couple of comments we have decided to revert these pavement marking linestyles back to they way they were before this update. There are now new linestyles to represent the physical width of pavement markings. These new linestyles are not used in the pavement marking levels bylevel settings for linestyles so the user will have to switch to these linestyles if they desire the physical width of pavement markings to be shown.
In order to apply these updates follow the steps below.
  1. Ensure the July 21st 2017 ODOTcadd standards have already been installed.
  2. Download the updated files here (ODOT_Linstyles.rsc and ODOT_Levels_General.dgnlib).
  3. Unzip the download inside the Standards folder of the ODOTcadd standards and replace/overwrite the files.

StormCAD Standards

​The StormCAD seed files, engineering libraries and user settings along with the accompanying documentation are intended to assist with designing and analyzing ODOT storm sewer systems, pavement spread and ditches using Bentley’s StormCAD software. They can be used with StormCAD for MicroStation or the standalone version. The ODOT customizations are provided for public use, however no ODOT technical support is available for third-party hydraulic software. Prior to implementation, carefully read the installation information in the ODOT User Guide for StormCAD and be aware of potential conflicts with other Bentley programs. To use StormCAD on a system with GEOPAK SS3, you will need StormCAD version Please contact Bentley for software assistance if needed.
