OpenRoads Designer II

This course is designed for civil engineers and designers who currently use OpenRoads Designer (ORD) for design and evaluation of highway or other corridor projects. It goes above and beyond the basic ORD course to enhance the students’ productivity and troubleshooting skills with the software in the topics listed below, with a primary focus on corridors and the creation of 3D models.


This course focuses on utilizing some of the more advanced road design functions contained in ORD with an emphasis on modeling. Students will complete example design problems in the areas of: Creating advanced Templates and End Conditions, including: Display Rules, Null Points, Labels, Target options etc; Corridor Modeling including: Horizontal and Vertical Point Controls, Parametric Constraints, Target Aliasing and Clipping (using multiple corridors); Overlay tools including components for Overlays, Leveling and Milling; Modeling Entrances including: placing Civil Cells and using Linear Templates and Surface Templates.


Students should have a basic working knowledge of OpenRoads Designer.

OpenRoads Designer Survey

This 2-day course exposes students to the entire workflow for using OpenRoads Designer (ORD) Survey. Students import data from a number of sources, reduce it to coordinates, display the results and correct coding errors. The data is then used to generate reports for uploading, terrains for design and graphics for planimetrics. This course is recommended for surveyors and others who will use ORD Survey for the office-side of preparing survey data to pass on to designers.
