Vehicle Tracking reverse vehicle path

I recently installed the 30 day trail version of the Autodesk Vehicle Tracking.  I'm tyring it out before we decide to buy it.  I'm working on a project where I have to show that a fire truck can back up and leave the site.  I'm using a WB-40 to simulate the fire truck and I used a predetermined path through our site; however, I can't seem to get it to show the reverse path.  I've worked with AutoTurn in the past and have been able to do it.  Any thoughts?

Sounds like you already have your answer, Autoturn?  If it's not broke, don't try to fix it.  Granted a true Autodesk turning application would be nice, but most of us can't wait or spend the time just to find out if a truck will fit or drive down a path.

True; however, that doesn't help me since we don't have AutoTurn.  I work for a small company and we typically us truck turning templates.  This software was suggested and I was given the job of testing it out on a project where it was critical to make sure the fire truck could back up without going off the access drive.

Re: Vehicle Tracking reverse vehicle path

02-20-2014 09:50 AM in reply to: christinaz need to create a new path.  I have not been able to figure out how to do this to an existiing path (make edits then reverse the vehicle).  I can grip edit all day long but there does not seem to be a way Reverse an existing path.  Hopefully someone will correct me on this.


See this link    and advance the video to the 16:00 min mark, and in there he shows you how to create a forward path, then back in the vehicle.
