OpenBridge Modeler

To connect with analytics

To export the modeled bridge data to LEAP Bridge Steel, do the following.

You must have LEAP Bridge Steel installed on your computer.
An OpenBridge Modeler model can be exported to LEAP Bridge Concrete, LEAP Bridge Steel, or RM Bridge for analysis and design.
  1. On the Utilities ribbon tab, select the LEAP Bridge Steel > Send to tool in the Interoperability group


    A message dialog from LEAP Bridge Steel opens when the data transfer is complete.
  2. Click OK.
The bridge is now fully modeled in LEAP Bridge Steel and ready for analysis.

After running analysis in LEAP Bridge Steel you can close program and return to OpenBridge Modeler.

Note: The data exchange is one-way from OpenBridge Modeler to LEAP Bridge Steel. Changes in geometry are not allowed in LEAP Bridge Steel. Instead, geometry must be updated in OpenBridge Modeler and repeat the process of passing analytical data to LEAP Bridge Steel.
