Hi all,

I am trying to learn to use Civil Design. I try to create model but failed. I read "tutorial" and "user guide".

Probably I could'nt understand well that creating a Template.

I explained my problem in attached dwg file.

1- All Chainages must be on Center Line (Ellipse).
2- L1, L2, L3, L4 and T1, T2, T3 are constant.

It's difficult getting points A, B, C, D, E. Between points A and E, the Horizontal Distance is variable.

Question 1 - How can I define a relation between points C and A ? Location of point A is variable.

Question 2 - There is no option to define Horizontal Alignment as Ellipse. I divided them to Polyline.

Question 3 - I want to get a cross section on chainage X which is on Center Line Ellipse. But, How can I find Reference Line (Ellipse) Point which is perpendicular to chainage X on Center Line ?

Thanks to everybody. Best regards,
