Re: Mill and Overlay Parameters

12-19-2013 02:15 PM in reply to: sboon

I've read through this thread several times and I'm getting even more confused.  You start from an profile elevation at the inside edge and you have a fixed outside thickness of 2"  If the slope between those two points is 1.25% plus or minus 0.25% then you're OK, otherwise the outside thickness must change - correct?  I'm not sure why you say that you would not use the profile in that case.

 

We may need a sketch here.

Crown Height is the term I should have used. I need to connect it to the centerline design profile. I dont get the same variables as you. I am using 2011 so mine appear different.

thanks

Don't worry about it.  I'm working on some early Christmas cheer here, so there isn't much you can say to annoy me today.

 

I've got an idea for using generic links and some conditional test subs to do this, but it needs to percolate in my head for a while.  Are your lane widths fixed or variable offsets?

wouldn't the height above be the profile of the edge?
Thank you

If the lane widths are always fixed then it's easy.

 

Create a level horizontal generic link from the Assembly attachment point that is the CL profile elevation, out to the lane width offset, and test that location with the Conditional Cut/Fill subassembly for the Fill depth range that will effect your desired cross slope range.

I think this will work. I will mark as solution accepted as soon as I give it a try tomorrow at the office. Thanks to everyone for all the suggestions

It looks like this isn't going to work.  I cannot get the Overlay sub to work when it is inserted after a Conditional sub - no idea of why.

I am not having any luck either. I am not able to get a slope from a link to marked point in 2011. Maybe it will work in a newer version.

Thanks to everyone for the ideas to try.

Merry Christmas
