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 surveyors and others who are will use ORD Survey for the office-side of preparing survey data to pass on to designer and/or uploading. It provides an in-depth look at the entire project workflow. This course is taught using KYTC standards and configuration.
Topics include: Importing Survey data from a number of formats; using the Text Import Wizard when a text file does not meet one of the prescribed formats; working with the Fieldbook to review and edit the data; graphically displaying the data and editing from the graphics; creating, reviewing and editing Terrain Models; creating civil geometry; creating cross sections and profiles for review of the terrains; calculating terrain to terrain volumes such as for a borrow pit.
Students should have a basic working knowledge of the previous version of MicroStation.
MicroStation is built into OpenRoads and MicroStation CONNECT I (or a basic working knowledge) is a prerequisite to this course. This course guides you through an OpenRoads Designer (ORD) roadway workflow using terrain models, civil geometry, dynamic profiles, creating templates, corridor modeling, dynamic sections, volumes, plottable sections, plan and profile creation as well as proposed terrain model creation. The drafting portion of the software is covered in MicroStation CONNECT I.More Information
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 is taught using KYTC standards and configuration.More Information
