Include common support structure types used in the UK

It would be good to add to the OBM library, for example standard abutments types used in the UK that are not integral and need an abutment gallery to align with the CIRIA C543 Bridge detailing guide.

Put the DEPTH point type back in the survey import

In InRoads there was an option to import data as depths instead of elevations. This is common practice for hydrographic data, as many dedicated programs have positive elevations being below 0, with elevations above as negatives. ASCII files can be...

horizontal regression for points

in Inroads there was an option to select points to put in regression in geometry to create a best fit alignment. You could then do a single element regression analysis afterwards and it would give you the best fit line and how far in either direct...

Save LeapBridge Concrete design that is exported from LeapBridge Steel

Currently, any substructure design that is created from LeapBridge Steel (LBS) is stored directly in the OpenBridge Designer (OBD) file. To allow multiple people to work on a project at once, it would be easier to have a save as option in LBS Subs...

Add Ability to move the vertical datum

The project is done without any geocoordinates and there is need to shift the overall project datum. currently the option to shift the model vertical elevation/ datum is not available. For Example, the original model done is at el. 16'...but need ...

Add the ability to perform evaluation and branching within Labeling tools

Before Survey Annotation tools were available within Open Roads, we used many VBA Feature Macros to generate all survey labels. As we were developing these, we realized that we could build some QA/QC checks into our code. For Example, we shoot sto...

Currently to get a specific vertical alignment on utilities it is quite difficult

Grid Text Rotated with Tick under Plan Grid Annotation

In Plan Grid annotation, grid texts (northing and easting) can only rotate or oriented with the view of drawing model but NOT able to rotated with the tick mark (+) or grid line.

Provide feedback if annotation changes AFTER QC has been performed

While the rules-based annotation is nice, it also introduces some concerns. Some of our designers are frustrated because they don't know if an element (and thus it's child annotation) has been changed AFTER the annotation has been reviewed. Would ...

Allow for Cross sections along an element

If I have a pipe and I need to cut a cross section along the pipe, And that pipe has a bend in it, I can't use the 2 point method, I need one that allows for bends and twists and turns. If the annotation is based on the type/purpose then swapping ...
