This course is recommended for Structural and Civil engineers involved in the design of buildings.
1:30pm - 4:30pm - OpenRoads Designer: Plan Production Orientation - Mark Ditko
What does everything we create in OpenRoads eventually lead toward? Sheets (more or less). So how does OpenRoads address this area? Can you just keep doing what you’ve always done? The InRoads Plan and Profile Generator was pretty cool. Is it like that? If you are involved in the creation of Plan & Profile sheets, or Cross Section sheets, or even just Plan sheets, and you see OpenRoads on your horizon, this session is for you. This class will be focusing on creating sheets with OpenRoads and how that’s done with this new software. This session will consist of the usual lecture / discussion and a structured hands-on activity. Depending on the instructors mood that day, the hands on may be integrated into the lecture as a ‘follow-along’ with the instructor, but you’ll have to attend to find out. Understanding your current sheet construction methods is a plus going into this session, but isn’t required. It would also be a bonus for the instructor if you had some general familiarity with OpenRoads so he wouldn’t have to explain what it was. The class will be based on OpenRoads Designer CONNECT 2019, R3 (or whatever is the latest version).
1:30pm - 4:30pm - Creating a Reality Model - Kurt Rasmussen

This course is recommended for Structural and Civil engineers involved in the design of buildings.
8:45am - 11:45am - OpenRoads Designer Horizontal Geometry Layout Tools Overview - Mark Ditko
How many different ways could you personally construct geometry in InRoads SS2? Because there were so many ways to layout geometry, how many a user knew was my own personal measurement of that user’s skill level. Enter OpenRoads. What has happen to the Geometry tools? Did they keep most of them? Are they all new? Will you be able to layout the usual geometry that you’ve always done? This session will cover the various geometry tools found in the latest version of OpenRoads. Exciting, right!?! You will find out if it’s going to be business as usual for you, or if you need an early retirement. This session will be primarily lecture / discussion, with some periodic unstructured hands-on so that you get to interact with OpenRoads a bit. This session can be attended by newer users, but anyone having some familiarity with OpenRoads, or who are strong with InRoads geometry layout, will be able to get more out of it. The class will be based on OpenRoads Designer CONNECT 2019, R3 (or whatever is the latest version).

MicroStation provides for customization of the user interface. Through customization you can deliver a more personal user experience that can be tailored to a specific department, discipline, role or even an individual. This can then enhance efficiency and help ensure more consistent output by delivering the right tool for the job at hand, and with the appropriate settings. Customization of the interface includes the ability to create custom tool boxes and tools, control attributes and tool settings, set design file settings and more. These customizations are stored in a DGN library file. This course contains a series of exercises used to explore the various methods of customizing the UI in the MicroStation CONNECT Edition through custom tool boxes/tools, defining settings for a tool, and covers the role of the dgnlib in storing these customizations.
1:30pm - 4:30pm - Stop Creating Inefficient Models - It's Time to Learn the Power of Parametric Modeling - Steve Rick
The old saying, ‘It’s never done until it’s done’ comes to mind when working with 3D designs. Models need to be altered and edited throughout the design process as quickly and easily as possible. In the past, you may have re-created models rather than edit an existing model as needed. Now, with the MicroStation CONNECT Edition, learn to create reusable models and cells that can be dynamically adjusted and sized with parametric dimensions and constraints.

1:30pm - 4:30pm - OpenRoads Designer: Civil AccuDraw Nuts & Bolts - Mark Ditko
Are you familiar with MicroStation AccuDraw? Personally, I have no idea how to use it. Mostly because it seems too complicated and I’m a full time InRoads user anyway. But that’s not what this session is about, and MicroStation AccuDraw is not the same as OpenRoads Civil AccuDraw, thank goodness. This hands‐on workshop will cover the new Civil AccuDraw toolbar in OpenRoads. It would be beneficial to have attended the morning session covering the OpenRoads Horizontal Layout tools, as some of those tools will be a part of this session while using Civil AccuDraw, but they won’t be discussed in any depth. This Workshop will be part lecture / discussion, and part free-styling hands on where you will lay out some random geometry and see how Civil AccuDraw can weave its way into that process. Intended for those users who have some familiarity with OpenRoads. The class will be based on OpenRoads Designer CONNECT 2019, R3 (or whatever is the latest version).
