section views and corridor scenarios

363 Views, 13 Replies
05-13-2010 09:30 AM

I have created a corridor, surface , sections and
qty, and want to explore another scenario. So I added another baseline, assembly
and targets, and turnes off the baselines from the previous scenario - the plan
looked great, but the first corridor is still in the section view. How can I
turn one off and have the second show? I would have thunk turning off the other
base line would have done that but it doesn't.

 

I realize I could make another corridor and surface
and add to the section views, but that seems antithetical the the tenets of the
software, no?

Joe:

 

Can you select different baselines under Corridor
in "Mr. Prospector"?

No. Only in the corridor properties dialog
box.

Save As.

 

Keep the different scenarios in different
files.

 

Thunk??  I think you need a, 'woulda' prefix to really make that
work. Winking smile emoticon

Right click any of the section view, Section View
Group Properties.

Sections tab

Uncheck what you don't want.

I'll use that advice, but shouldn't turning of
baselines remove any associated sections?

That isn't an option since scenario 2 and scenario
1 are the same corridor. I turned off all the scenario 1 baselines and the
corridor line go away in plan as expected. I add scenario 2 base line and the
corridor line display in plan as expected but scenario 1 stay visible in the
section view even though they are not visible in corridor view.

 

I thought the hole idea was and I paraphrase from
the marketing material..."...Instantly visualize different scenarios with
civil3d corridors.... blah bla blah..."

 

momentarily frustrated,

Duh, of course.  My bad.

 

What's the problem with making 2 corridors? 
it'd be easy then.  You're doing all the same with with the extra baseline
anyway...

I guess that true - I thought I could do it this
way and toggle between scenarios for comparison, plus have less
clutter.

 

Thanks

 

P.S while I have you Matt, are you familiar with
the OverlayEdgetoCrown Assembly? I'd like to add a pavement section and or curb
to the edge but the corridor goes kabluey when I do. the attachenment nodes are
there but it seems to not keep the overlay offset.

 

I'm going to try a workaround by creating the
overlay surface and extract profile from corridor and the attach a final road
assembly.

 

Thanks, Joe

Whack the Corridor section 1 and 2 on different Layers, freeze and thaw accordingly or vpfreeze/thaw.

You then won't see them on the sections.

At least that's what I do.
