COGO Pts along CL

How can I insert COGO points along the CL of an alignment? I've designed my vertical in the profile view. Now I would like to see spots every 25' in plan view. I see all codes except CL or crown. ETW, sidewalk, daylight, etc...

Depending on which sub assemblies you used you may be looking for ETW instead of crown or CL. The median flush subassembly places a crown coded point, the lane assemblies for the most part place a ETW coded point. If you right click on the subassembly tool and look at help it will have a diagram showing how the coding is taking place.

that's not good. Guess I'll have to convert back to LDT. Grrrrrrrrr....

There are some options under the Create Points command to do thi. You can place points on alignment points of curvature and also by measuring/dividing an alignment. If your alignment starts at a whole station location, then you should be able to locate points at other whole station locations using the measure option.

Define EP alignments etc. if you want to set points on those using the same method.

If you create a corridor, then you can export corridor points (cross section) to Cogo points.

Andrew, are you associated with AutoDesk? You are hiding behind your email address.

I think this is the goal! > > Define EP alignments etc. if you want to set points on those using the same method.

You could say that I am associated with Autodesk in that I work with their products.

Points at cross section locations, with elevations, can be exported from a corridor model. And yes, the corridor model is built by assigning a typical section (assembly) such that they are perpendicular to the direction of the alignment. Therefore offset locations of EP points etc. reference CL stationing.

Andrew: Please re-read my question. I didn't ask about corridor or cross section elevations. My questions follow your remarks. Have a nice & happy New Year.

Thanks Bill - yourself a safe and happy new years as well.

Are you wanting to set points on existing features at perpendicular cross section locations?

Not now, I'm just trying to gather all the info this 6 decade body can handle.

""...If you create a corridor, then you can export corridor points (cross section) to Cogo points."" Yes, but you cannot export CL points like you can in LDT. The measure along alignment command does not allow you to pull elevation from a DTM or Corridor surface either. So guess I'm still stuck.
