Different alignment offsets with the same profile

330 Views, 2 Replies

I created a profile for an alignment (which has 2 offsets) and also an assembly with two assembly offsets.

I wanted to create a corridor where my assembly offsets will have the same profile but will be on different alignments  (alignment offsets).


In the corridor properties / parameters, I got an error : duplicate profile found.


Should I copy the profile (for each offset) in different profile views (for each offset) ? Or there is a better way to do that ?

Thank you.

One more question, the alignment offset has a type : offset (logical) but I can't apply cant to it.
I changed it to : Rail but I don't think it's a good way.

Anyone knows ?

To use a project profile on an offset alignment, you need to create the profile of the surface for the alignment offset, and then use the command _AeccSuperimposeProfile to profile the central alignment be used in Offset.
