Is there anyway to get the backslope/Daylight to target the existing surface elevation at the R/W no matter what the slope? I just talked it over with the Engineer and he said that is what the client would prefer. And I thought my first attempt would have worked exactly like that.
I think I'm on board now. So it seems a Target does not overide Parameters if the Parameters are met for the Subassembly requirements. Say if I wanted to keep a 4:1 backslope whereever possible but in cases where that 4:1 slope would exceed the 33' R/W then with DaylightInsideROW SA it would Daylight to the existing surface at the 33' R/W.
If I didn't care what the backslope was going to be and I just had to target the 33' R/W then I would use the DaylightToROW SA where you have no secondary control of slopes at all, it just aims for whatever Target you set. Thanks for the help.
I have another issue, but should I open another Topic or can I continue in this Topic? It involves the intersection of this main road alignment and a secondary road. Thing is my main road has a shoulder whereas my secondary road doesn't have a shoulder. I used the Intersection Wizard to create the Intersection, but the two templates don't align. Without the shoulder the ditches don't line up. Please advise.
Oh and I'll Check your Answer as a Solution.
Glad I could help. Your reasoning is sound. Each of the subassemblies has different overriding conditions that control how it behaves. I believe that the DaylightInsideROW is the best for the current situation.
Go ahead and cut and paste your new question into another post. They're unrelated and having them separate will help other people search and find solutions.
I will start up a separate topic as you suggested. Thanks again for the help.
This is another Defective subassembly. Please see the thread below:
Thanks for the heads up Ernst. Thankfully for the current design of this project I don't exceed the 2:1 Max slope though if something changes its good to know. So if it is defective, then which Subassembly do you recommend that can still accomplish what I'm looking for? And with this being my first full corridor project the SAC is out of the question. Not even close to being that advanced. Its taken me 3 weeks just to get this far on these 2 short roads.
You could Target a Featureline, with a LaneAOR subassembly, both horizontally and vertically, that has its elevations extracted from EG.
Good luck Guy.
