Corridor limits

Hi all, I have a corridor created that does not go to the limits I selected. As you can see in the attached images, the Parameters for Baseline (1) show a region starting at 4+73.46 and another ending at the same station. However, in the drawing, there is no linework from the corridor at that station. Is this a problem? Or simply the corridor not displaying the design info? I was wanting to snap to that line to get my intersection design done but there is no line there. If anyone has any idea, I'm all ears. -- Brian Hailey LDT2005 C3D2005 XP Pro - SP 2 P4 2.8GHz 1.00 GB of RAM

OK Brian, I'll have a go at it. How about starting Region 2 at station 4+15.27 and stopping Region 2 at station 4+73.36? You'll never miss the dirt in a tenth on each end of the region. This is through lessons learned with LDT. I always take an extra section at the beginning and ending stations of an intersection, plus or minus a tenth as the case may necessitate.

Hi Don, That may be a viable work around but as this is simply a learning project, I would like to see if there is a fix for this or, if not, a bug logged. I will give it a go and see what happens. That seems to work (at least graphically). I don't know what would happen if I create a surface from the corridor though. -- Brian Hailey LDT2005 C3D2005 XP Pro - SP 2 P4 2.8GHz 1.00 GB of RAM "Don Reichle" wrote in message news:41a25612$1_2@newsprd01... > OK Brian, I'll have a go at it. > > How about starting Region 2 at station 4+15.27 and stopping Region 2 at > station 4+73.36?

Brian; What I've done (in Land) is just break the 3D polys at the edges of the intersections, and then manually configure the intersection. Just thinking out loud here... Maybe Region 2 would only be a half-street improvement? -- Don Reichle Hacker Engineering, Inc.

And Brian... Maybe think about using Invert Colors on your Screen Captures when there's a lot of black in the background. Uses a significant amount of toner when printed. :-) I was lazy so printed instead of switching back and forth from post to post. -- Don Reichle Hacker Engineering, Inc.

Do the assemblies match at Sta 4+73.46 for the problematic side of the cartway? It appears you are not getting anything on the lower side of the upper road (assuming the upper is Deer Meade) across the length of the intersection - not just the one station. Showing the stationing and noting which road is which would help follow your description of the problem. I've had corridors simply ignore normal sample stations.... -- Karl Fuls PLS Autocad AEC Training and Consulting Autodesk Discussion Group Facilitator Brian Hailey wrote: > Hi all, > > I have a corridor created that does not go to the limits I selected.
