Playboy Magazine's Iconic Alcohol Advertising in the 1980s

Playboy Magazine, a hallmark of 20th-century popular culture, was known for many things - its groundbreaking interviews, in-depth articles, and iconic centerfolds. But, often overlooked, was its strategic and stylish portrayal of alcohol advertising, particularly during the exuberant decade of the 1980s.

Use CONNECT Edition - OpenRoads tool to Microstation civil design

What you'll learn
Open Roads dsign
Terrain models
vertical alignments
horizontal alignments

No recquirements
In this course we are going to go through different tools of Bentley Open Roads Designer Connect Edition. This is a software version which combines the legacy star products of Bentley for infraworks: InRoads, GEOPAK and MX.

For this course, we will start with an introduction, over view, keyboard shortcuts and user interface / navigation in Bentley Open Roads Designer Connect Edition. We will learn the difference between Bentley Open Roads and other similar software. We will try to go through few basics to get started.

We will try to cover up horizontal and vertical geometries creation, modification and analyzation concepts, followed by five practice exercises that will include creation of offset geometries, Cul da Sec, End Tapers, Drive Way and Curb Returns.

After horizontal and vertical geometries, we will cover Terrains or Surfaces. We will learn creation of terrains using different methods like creation through ASCII Files, Corridors, Point Cloud Data (. POD Files) and elements etc. After creation, multiple aspects of terrains will be discussed like their modification, editing and analyzation.

Similar to Terrains, different aspects of corridors will be discussed in the later session. It will include the processes involved in creation, edition and modification of corridors and templates for corridors. Finally, there will be a practice exercise that will conclude the Module of Bentley Open Roads course.

Please be noted that there is no hard and fast rule to execute a specific command as there are multiple approaches to create similar output, however, we will try to follow the simplest approach possible to make this course easy and fun to learn for you.
