What do you like best?

MX road is a userfriendly design platform which makes work easier and faster. The main advantage is that once you are familiar with it, its quiet easy with the coding and visualization. The outputs can be backed up and saved. Even if the software crashes we can recover it using the codes. Programme sharing is easier and inputs can be transfered as a simple notepad file rather than bulkier inpurts compared to the other softwares. Both Vertical and horizontal allignment designs can be dome more aaccurately and easily without much glich. Input parameters can be easily adjusted accordingly. Once you are familiar with the software and the coding. its quiet easy to design allignments. Output options are available based on the desired formats.

What do you dislike?

The software crases regularly. I had a recent update to windows 10 and the Select Series 3 was crashing whenever i was trying to close the software. I heard that there are some bugs in SELECT Series 4. Not sure whethers its because of teh compatability with Windows 10. SO better to go with Windows 7 itself for those who are working on MX Road. Large space requirements are neeed when you are working on the software. So mostly preferable in heavy systems if you are working on large projects and designing. Better to keep backup on a daily basis of the input files.

"MX Road - The only good thing Bentley ever purchased"

What do you like best?

String based modeling with code input. Having the ability to code your design greatly improved efficiency.

It is the only program with this kind of interface, and it is faster than any other software to design major roads, period. All template based programs pale in comparison compared with MX Road.

What do you dislike?

Visualization should be improved, as well as TIN handling. If only Bentley invested the time into it, as ANY AND ALL medium to advanced users of ANY software will tell you that coded interface is the best and only way to function, I wish they upgraded this perfect program to a 64 bit engine.

Recommendations to others considering the product

understand code before using this software

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Major highways. Plan production via input files is the fasted way to operate, and better than anything else Bentley has ever been associated with.
