Ability to automatically generate 3d linear features/Linestrings from OBM elements

Generation of 2d decorations and solids are insufficient for full coordination with road geometry teams and they regularly need to provide 3d linestring geometry as part of the roadway design for bridge barriers, wingwall edges for earthworks, etc...

Staged Construction Optionality

Staged construction is a very common construction methodology. The current process of modeling staged construction in OBM is to model each stage as separate bridges. This creates problems when modeling a steel I-girder bridge as the cross-frames b...

Model a straight bridge on a curved alignment

The ability to create a straight bridge when the alignment transitions from tangent to a horizontal curve on the bridge. Currently the deck ends are controlled by the bridge skew from a radial line at the end of the deck rather than from the tange...

Approach Slab Line Offset

Currently the approach slab line uses an offset distance to place it. that offset value just shifts the line that distance along the alignment, which is not what we want especially on curved bridges. That offset distance needs to be a copy paralle...

Adjust bearing vertically

In order for the place bearing tool to work for as many instances as possible, we either need to be able to adjust the bearing's vertical location due to shim plate placement on an individual basis or else allow for different cells to be used at t...

Include ability to model curtain wall under end bent

Please include ability to model curtain wall under end bent, similar to backwall. This curtain wall is a great tool when working on projects when new fill required to place is not significant enough to just an independent retaining wall but is sig...

Implement Beam hog modeling aligned to Australian Bridge design

Current Beam hog modeling is not as expected for Australian Bridges. Deck thickening can be applied, but the beams that support the deck do not follow the underside shape of the deck. The beams are straight, but really need to be curved and follow...
