Strictly for reference, the PowerPoint presentations that accompanied the In-House MX training from 2005 are available. Some of them have been updated to MX V8i although many have not. These presentations are not a substitute for actual MX training.

Videos were created with MX V8i during the summer and fall of 2012 and contain information that was current at the time. An update to Windows Media Player is needed to view the video files properly. If you have trouble playing a video, please see Bill Caswell for assistance.

Select a presentation from the following links:

Introducing the new road design technology from Bentley called OpenRoads.  It is the evolution of not only MX, but InRoads and GEOPAK.  Thus eliminating all communication barriers between road design softwares. The following videos are for the SS3 version of MX.

Also available are Demonstration Videos that have been recorded from the 2013 Bentley LEARNing Conference:

  • Horizontal Geometry Workshop,  (in Canadian)

    • 101 - Opening the Design Standards toolbar, Feature Toggle bar, Civil Message Center and Project Explorer

    • 102 - Import Geometry

    • 103 - Project Explorer Settings, Point tool w/ Key-In, Line Between Points and Set Feature Definition

    • 104 - Define Starting Station and Design File Settings/Civil formatting

    • 201 - Design Standards toolbar and Simple Arc From Element

    • 202 - Arc From Element

    • 203 - Line Between Arcs

    • 204 - Complex By Elements and Civil Message Center

    • 205 - Define Starting Station and Horizontal Geometry Report

    • 206 - Feature Definition Toggle Bar and Single Offset Entire Element

    • 207 - Single Offset Partial

    • 208 - Manipulator edit

    • 301 - Arc Between Elements

    • 302 - Arc Between Elements

    • 303 - Spiral Arc Spiral

    • 304 - 3 Center Arc

    • 401 - Arc Between Elements w/ Ratio Offset

    • 402 - Complex By PI and Set Feature Definition

    • 403- Taper Arc Taper

    • 501 - Line Between Points, Line To Element, Simple Arc and Variable Offset Taper

    • 502 - Reverse Transition

    • 503 - Reverse Curve By Radii Ratio

  • Vertical Geometry Workshop,  (Also in Canadian)

    • 101 -  Opening the Design Standards toolbar, Civil Message Center and Project Explorer

    • 201 - Import Geometry [GEOPAK]

    • 202 - Open Profile Model

    • 203 - Using Element Templates in Attributes [This presenter demonstrates ditch profiles as Colinear Profiles.  In the real world, a ditch profile would be an Offset Profile.  Fortunatly, OpenRoads actually has the ability to handle Offset Profiles]

    •  204 - Profile Report

    • 205 - Quick Profile from Surface

    • 206 - Open Profile Model and Profile from Surface

    • 207 - Set As Active Terrian Model and Open Profile Model [Context Sensitive Menu]

    • 301 - Define Profiles by BestFit

    • 302 - Setting the Design Standard and the Civil Message Center

    • 303 - Set an Active Profile

    • 401 - Profile by Slope from Element and Profile Intersection Point

    • 402 - Profile Line Between Points, Setting the Design Standard, Profile Reverse Transition and Profile Curve Between Elements

    • 403 - Profile Complex by Elements

    • 501 - Setting the Design Standard, Using Civil AccuDraw and Profile Complex by VPI

    • 502 - Manipulator Edit

    • 601 - Create Civil Rule Feature

    • 602 - Profile by Constant Elevation

    • 603 - Using Civil AccuDraw, Feature Toggle Bar/Chain command, Profile Line Between Points and Profile Complex by Elements [I continue to dismiss the concept of Ditch Profiles as being colinear to the Mainline Alignment.  Thankfully, OpenPoads recognizes that an actual Offset Profile is not colinear and it is identified as a Projected Profile.  Please focus on the tools demonstrated and not on the engineering.]

    • 604 - Profile Offset Transition, Profile Line Between Points and Profile Complex by Elements

    • 605 - Project Profile to Element

    • 606 - Quick Profile Transition and Open Profile Model
