Swept Path is outermost points of wheels and vehicle as polylines. Vehicle swept envelope is the outermost area of the swept vehicle body

lars
it wasn't a locked layer at all....rather I'd unticked the check box for plotting the envelope !

but while your on, how do you define the "sweep" and the "envelope"

Use surface profile, there you can display reference files. The drawback is that you need to create a surface. However you can create a dummy surface of your polyline, offset it and triangulate.

Is it possible to insert "add display reference lines" in Profile 3D polyline command?

Could it be a locked layer? Test in a brand new DWG

hi lars

just been using the swept path tool and its just stopped plotting the vehicle envelope ?

was fine yesterday, in fact the first one I did today was ok ....ie creating the blocks for the wheel paths, vehicles and the envelope

now just plotting the vehicle and the wheel paths ? ?...haven't changed anything

any ideas what could cause that ?

Design your path and test with one of your vehicles, after simulation select "Lock to Lock Chart" to examine the lowest speed. The speed is calculated from "Lock to Lock" time.

Over a certain distance the driver is supposed to maneuver the steering Wheel, narrow bends will result in heavier maneuvers and lower speed.

Hi

As I understand it, the VTS is only for slow speeds, but does anyone know what the maximum speed it can be used for is? I want to use it as a guide for designing haul roads in quarries (which aren't very fast anyway).

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi!

Yes it's possible. Look at "Draw fromCoordinates" command.
