I need to create an assembly that will give me the volume of a new shoulder along an existing road, as show in this picture,
I can easily make an alignment along my edge of pavement, and match the existing elevations, but I need to hold the cross slope constant AND the shoulder slope constant, and have the bottom of the shoulder slope to a target 2 feet off of my ROW.
I'm having a hard time figuring out how to do this, any suggestions would be great. Thanks!
Try this assembly created in the 2012 version. It starts from a baseline alignment (can be at centerline or whatever suits you.) It uses a LinkOffsetOnSurface to locate your EdgeofAsphalt (needs a horizontal target for that), then uses a second LinkOffsetOnSurface to locate your target point and places a MarkedPoint. Finally it uses LinkSlopesBetweenPoints to create the links to the intersecting point.
Once you're satisfied that it's working properly you can edit the assembly properties and turn on the Omit Link option for the first two subs so that they don't appear in your corridor or affect the surface construction.
