Road design - SierraSoft Roads - Mega projects. When size does matterThanks to SierraSoft Roads it is possible to manage with big quantities of data: hundreds of alignments, thousands of sections, millions of triangles and millions of point clouds. Only necessary data are loaded into memory and the ones on the disk are automatically compressed in order to create small files. No more limits to your projects.
Road design - SierraSoft Roads - Intersections. Even simpler. (video 01)Whether it’s roundabouts, at-grade intersections or complex interchanges, you can design them with SierraSoft Roads fast and accurately as never before. With a few click you can create and directly change them in 3D on planimetry

(video 02)Whether it’s roundabouts, at-grade intersections or complex interchanges, you can design them with SierraSoft Roads fast and accurately as never before. With a few click you can create and directly change them in 3D on planimetry.
Road design - SierraSoft Roads - Road and highway design standards. Free to design where you prefer.Design according to the road and highway design standards you need. Thanks to an open and smart system, you can extend the road and highway design standards with the new one you need. You can validate the calculations and verify the used functions and procedures. Thanks to this system you can work with no limits and have control over the project in real time.
Road design - SierraSoft Roads - Alignment design. Alignment design in a natural way.A new system with a few essential commands allows to solve complicated cases in a natural way through grips, properties and intelligent objects. Everything is displayed in real time and can be verified due to the current policy. The alignment design has never been so easy
Road design - SierraSoft Roads - Modification and control in real timeSet to zero waiting times between the changes and the final results! It is possible to control the design like never before, drastically reduce designing time thanks to 3D real time cross-section on planimetry. By changing a parameter everything is updated automatically. The result can be immediately checked even before creating the final project. Maximum control over the entire design and over every detail
Road design - SierraSoft Roads - Graphic engine. Extraordinarily fastA special flexible and very high-performance 3D graphic engine. Based on this graphic engine, the CAD is extremely fast and convenient, even with huge quantities of vector data and images.
Road design - SierraSoft Roads - User Interface. Beautiful and functionalThe ergonomic and refined Interface is focused on the user’s experience. The result is a simple and effective Interface with a wider graphic area and the access to features is natural and more intuitive
Road design - SierraSoft Roads - Creation. Create the project with one clickIt is possible to create a project with incredible ease. Insert axis and define the typical sections and you will have the finished project only with one click. Do you need to make some changes? You can do it just where you need it and then with one click everything is updated.
Road design - SierraSoft Roads - Multi. Multi. Multi. Multiply your working spaceExtend at will the space where to manage your projects. Split your project in several windows, pages and monitors. All data and views are synchronized in real time. Start a project in a window and continue working on it in another window on another monitor. Discover a new working dimension
