Draw vertical alignment, draw round about, intersection
« on: December 26, 2020, 05:26:56 AM »
Dear sir

it is possible to draw vertical alignment on surface profile, draw round about+ Intersection on road plan, make horizontal alignment with road offset,
in next version of cad tools.
it will be very beneficial for a cad technician who are working in road and bridge infrastructure project.
thanks

Lars

Hi,

Not real profile alignments but 3D profile alignments. Look at "Create 3D alignment". You will find information in the helpfile "Surface/Surface Profile" and "Lines/Create 3D Alignment"
  • First you create a surface and a horisontal 2D or 3D line/Polyline (If in 2D you finally may need to convert it to 3D)
  • Use the "Create Surface Profile" to plot a profile in the drawing.
  • Now draw a profile line (2/3D) in the profile frame. When satisfied convert the line to a 3Dline.
  • In the menu Tools in the Surface Profile Form you'll find "Create 3D alignment" a command to combine plan and profile line to a 3D line.
  • Use that alignment for cross-sections
