The ODOT CADD Engineering Standards are catagorized into TWO different set of standards. The OHDOT standards are designed to work with MicroStation and OpenRoads Designer CONNECT Edition. The ODOTcadd standards are designed to work with MicroStation V8i and GEOPAK V8i (SELECTseries 4 & 10). The best way to learn about our CADD standards and how to set them up is by watching our YouTube video series linked below.

Getting Started with the ODOT CADD Standards

ODOTcadd Standards for MicroStation and GEOPAK (SELECTseries 4 & 10)

The ODOTcadd standards include many of ODOT’s previous V8istd CADD Standards for MicroStation and GEOPAK with additional newly developed standards for Bentley’s OpenRoads technology; however, there are some changes that are not backwards compatible with previous releases of ODOT’s CADD Standards and existing projects. ODOT recommends completing existing projects using the previously published V8istd CADD Standards.

For this update, the GEOPAK/PowerGEOPAK related standards for the OpenRoads technology have been updated using the SELECTseries 4 & 10 version of the software and are therefore incompatible with GEOPAK/PowerGEOPAK (SELECTseries 3). The following software version was used for these updates:

  • PowerGEOPAK V8i (SELECTseries 10)

The ODOTcadd Standards are now delivered as a standalone application. This application is used to download and synchronize the ODOTcadd Standards directly to a local/network folder. We've created a detailed tutorial for using the synchronization tool.

For information on the Sync Tool please refer to our video tutorial and help document.
