OpenRoads Designer and Connect Edition Applications

Description
This course is an overview of the FDOT Connect workspace for OpenRoads Designer. The goal of this course is to provide the user with an understanding of the FDOT workspace for OpenRoads Designer and an overview of the essential elements of the FDOT design environment as a prerequisite for further FDOT CADD training courses.

Prerequisites

  • Knowledge of ORD
  • Knowledge of Microstation

Description
The training course details 3D bridge modeling workflow using Bentley product OpenBridge Modeler (OBM). To be in compliance with the Florida Department of Transportation CADD standard (FDOT CADD), this effort must also be accomplished within the FDOTConnect workspace. Starting with laying out a 3D bridge model, following up with plan development, and concluding with quantity reports, the participant is walked through a typical workflow using the available tools and features. Interspersed throughout are real-world detailing and design examples using the concepts in the course. Examples of data migration among different engineering disciplines are represented in the form of hands-on exercises.

Prerequisites

  • Production Support CADD Office

Description
This course was developed to introduce the Drainage and Utilities Workflow and OpenRoads Designer CONNECT Edition tools for drainage design and modeling on Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) projects. The curriculum was developed within the FDOTCONNECT Workspace to provide sample exercises for many of the Drainage Tools on a sample project data set. Participants of this course will be introduced to the newest OpenRoads environment and a Workflow for designing two-dimensional (2D) Plans, Profiles, and three-dimensional (3D) Models for drainage-related Construction Deliverables.

Prerequisites

  • Understanding of CADD using Microstation
  • Basic understanding of OpenRoads Designer Connect Edition Concepts
  • Engineering knowledge on designing drainage improvements on a Roadway
  • Understanding of OpenRoads Technology tools

Description
This is a 2-day training course that will go over the fundamentals for developing Traffic Plans. Participants will be introduced to Bentley OpenRoads Designer (ORD)CONNECT Edition – FDOT Traffic Tools developed for OpenRoads Technology specifically for Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) projects using the FDOTCONNECT Workspace.

Prerequisites

  • Understanding of CADD using Microstation
  • Basic understanding of OpenRoads Designer Connect Edition Concepts
  • Engineering knowledge on designing FDOT Traffic Plans on a Roadway
  • Understanding of OpenRoads Technology tools

Description
This training course details the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Quantity Workflow developed for the Summary of Quantity Reports required for the Estimated Quantities Report PDF. The participants will learn the use of FDOT and OpenRoads Designer tools required in the workflow. This includes tools used to assign pay item information to 2D and 3D design elements, calculate quantities, and export quantity reports. This course also covers the Designer Interface Quantity Builder, used to generate an XML file compatible for upload to Designer Interface for AASHTOWare Project Preconstruction.

Prerequisites

  • Understanding of CADD using Microstation
  • Basic understanding of OpenRoads Designer Connect Edition Concepts
  • Engineering knowledge on designing a Roadway
  • FDOT Roadway Design and 3D Modeling
  • Basic 2D Rule-Based Design Training

Description
FDOT Digital Delivery (BIM files) – Design Review Workshop: This workshop will provide knowledge, information, and updates on FDOT requirements for model-centric designs, delivering BIM files as legal contract documents, QA/QC of BIM files, and Design Review of BIM files. Participants will get hands-on training with the contents of BIM files utilizing Design Review software from experienced instructors on the subject matter.

Prerequisites

  • Students must have a basic understanding of the FDOT design and delivery process
  • Must have computer skills necessary to organize files and folders, operate a Windows operating system, and open PDFs
