Re-Station Alignment after Editing

319 Views, 3 Replies

After editing an alignment in my drawing the stationing did not update to the new edited alignment. I tried selecting the alignment and in alignment properties changing the end stationing, but I get the error "Either outside alignment limits or within gap created by a station equation". The stationing stops at my first edit point 66+24 when the total length of edited alignment is 103+15. Is there a way to re-station alignment.


Thanks in advance for any help....

Was the alignment created from objects? I have experienced aligment problems due to acad entities being drawn in the wrong direction of the alignment.

Thank you

As Joe said, make sure your alignments are connected and that they are going the correct directly. Each alignment entity has a direction assigne to it. The end of one entity must be connected to the beginning of another or the stationing won't continue. You can flip the direction of individual entities using the Geometry Editor (select the alignment and it's on the context sensitive ribbon and it brings up the alignment layout tools) and then selecting the Reverse Sub-entity Direction command.

Thanks to both of you....I reversed the edited entities and the stationing updated.
