3D PLINE CROSS SECTION OPTION REQUIRE
« on: August 01, 2019, 03:51:58 PM »
DEAR SIR ,

I REQUEST TO MAKE A OPTION IN YOUR CADTOOLS NEXT VERSION, TO MAKE A CROSS SECTION OF 3D POLYLINE.
CURRENTLY PROFILE 3D POLYLINE IS AVAILABLE, THAT IS ALSO GOOD ONE.
BUT IN ROAD PROJECT MOSTLY REQUIRE CROSS SECTION OF NATURAL GROUND LEVEL.

** WITH OUT SURFACE

SEE ATTACH IMAGE

THANKS

Lars

I'm sorry but CadTools cross-sections need a surface. Try to triangulate your 3D features and then create cross-sections.

However you can offset your alignment (3DPolyline) to left and right side and triangulate them to a dummy surface. Then you use that surface in the "Surface Cross section command".
Then add all your 3D polylines as references (with elevation) so they will be represented by a circle in the Cross Sections. Circles will be created at same layers as the References by that way you can identify any reference line (if you have them on individual layers.
