This course will provide the delegate with the basics skills to work within the MicroStation environment.
The course will take the form of live tutorials which the delegates can take notes and ask questions, followed by hands-on practical exercises in order to develop a comprehensive understanding of the Openroads Designer Connect Edition
On this 4 day course you will learn the following topics
The course will show you how to create a terrain model in different ways including importing from an external file and creating a terrain model from an imported cad file such as an Autocad dwg.
The course will also show you how to edit a terrain model and create a delta terrain model which would represent the underside of the topsoil strip on your site.
You’ll also learn how to analyse your terrain model including finding individual levels and applying contours.
We will also show you how to create ponds or bunds and how to calculate the volumes of the ponds or bunds.
|Horizontal and vertical alignment design|
Openroads Designer uses object-oriented coordinate geometry and alignment design capabilities to provide intelligent updating as you quickly create your horizontal and vertical alignments.
You will learn how to build horizontal and vertical alignments from individual elements which will be familiar to previous MX users such as fixed, free and floating elements.
You will also learn how to create offset elements from your horizontal design which retain their design intent, so that you maintain the relationship between your elements.
This part of the course will show you how to add corridors to your alignments and how to create and edit a template which can be applied to your alignment.
We will show you how to create the relationships between template points and how to test your template to ensure it works the way you expect.
We will also show you how to utilise components you have already created so that you never have to create a template twice.
Once you have finished your template creation we will show you how to clip out a corridor across a junction, removing components such as earthworks and kerbs across your junction.
We will also show you how to create overlay and planing sections and how to report the quantities
The course will show you how to create the junction geometry and then how to create a terrain model covering the junction area.
You’ll also learn how to add surface and linear templates to create the pavement layers, kerbs, footways and earthworks slopes.
The course will also show you how to create the corridor references to stop components being created across the junction.
On the course you will learn how to create a simple drainage network and attach flows to the system.
You will learn how to place an outfall headwall, inlets and pipes between manholes.
Finally, you will learn how to create catchments from shapes and assign each catchment to an inlet.
Once you have a layout, this course will show you how to calculate hydraulics, how to use scenarios and alternatives, how to compute a scenario and how to confirm the success of the computation.
|Drawing creation and annotation|
The course will show you how to easily extract drawings from your model in any scale you choose.
You’ll also see how to add your own drawing border.
We will also show you how to create cross sections and long sections and how to change the annotation on the drawings to suit your company standards.
We will show you how to enhance your model with additional elements such as traffic signals, guardrails, lighting columns etc.
We will also show you how to model utilities so that underground services can be viewed for clash detection.
You'll also learn how to drape road markings on to road surface.
Once you have added elements into your model we'll show you how to add additional properties to the elements for asset management purposes
