Parcel Reports to show "reverse curve"

331 Views, 3 Replies

Hi all, couple issues with the Parcel Reports in Toolbox....I appreciate any help with this. -(edit: this is using Civil 3D 2011 on Windows 7 x64)-

 

I have edited the "GeneralLegalPhrasings.xml" file used for the parcel report "General_Legal_Description_for_Parcels".

 

Two issues:  1. it will not label a reverse curve properly....it shows them all as "compound curves". 2.  A curve to curve is always shown as "NonTangent".

 

I've attached the .xml file (I only edited the imperial parcels - the second large group of <Metes>).

Quite simply, these two "types" below have the words "reverse curve" and tangent or non-tangent accordingly in the output phrase, but it only creates non-tangent compound reports.

Curve to TangentReverseCurve

Curve to NonTangentReverseCurve

 

I appreciate any and all help/ideas.  Thanks.

 

This is the report from the parcel in the attached dwg file (notice the "curve to the left" -> "curve to the right" labelled as compound, and all non-tangent curve to curve):

---------

From the POINT OF BEGINNING; Thence, North 90° 00' 00" West, 129.16 feet to a point for corner;

 

Thence, North 00° 00' 00" East, 100.00 feet to a point for corner, the beginning of a curve; tangent

 

Thence, 61.46 feet along the arc of a ____ curve to the right, having a radius of 39.13 feet, a central angle of 90° 00' 00", and a chord which bears North 45° 00' 00" East, 55.34 feet, to a point for corner, the beginning of a compound curve; non-tangent

 

Thence, 47.09 feet along the arc of a ____ curve to the left, having a radius of 29.98 feet, a central angle of 90° 00' 00", and a chord which bears North 45° 00' 00" East, 42.40 feet, to a point for corner, the beginning of a compound curve; non-tangent

 

Thence, 94.33 feet along the arc of a ____ curve to the right, having a radius of 30.03 feet, a central angle of 180° 00' 00", and a chord which bears North 90° 00' 00" East, 60.05 feet, to a point for corner;

 

Thence South 00° 00' 00" West, 169.11 feet to the POINT OF BEGINNING

 

and containing 0.483 acres of land.

actually, even with the default installed "GeneralLegalPhrasings.xml" in use, all curve to curve segments are only recognized as non-tangent compound curves.

 

This is the report of the same parcel using the default installed .xml file (the underlined is what identifies the issue - this callout is only available with a "Curve to NonTangentCompoundCurve"):

----------

DESCRIPTION OF Standard : 1

 

From the POINT OF BEGINNING; Thence, North 90° 00' 00" West for a distance of 129.16 feet to a point on a line.

 

Thence, North 00° 00' 00" East for a distance of 100.00 feet to the beginning of a curve,

 

Said curve turning to the right through 90° 00' 00", having a radius of 39.13 feet, and whose long chord bears North 45° 00' 00" East for a distance of 55.34 feet to the beginning of a non-tangential curve.

 

Said curve turning to the left through 90° 00' 00", having a radius of 29.98 feet, and whose long chord bears North 45° 00' 00" East for a distance of 42.40 feet to the beginning of a non-tangential curve.

 

Said curve turning to the right through an angle of 180° 00' 00", having a radius of 30.03 feet, and whose long chord bears North 90° 00' 00" East for a distance of 60.05 feet.

 

thence South 00° 00' 00" West a distance of 169.11 feet to the POINT OF BEGINNING;

 

and containing 0.483 acres of land.

-------------

 

Still appreciate any help, or any ideas where the root problem coding is.  Thanks again.

ok, I've found where the function calculations are being done to check for tangency...."LegalDescription_Layout.xsl"

(do a search for reversecurve, should find it quickly) (all of this by the way is in C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\C3D 2011\enu\Data\Reports\xsl).

 

I am not at all familiar with xml so while I try to find the errors with the code, I would still greatly appreciate any help....sorry for so many posts to read through, but I'll be sure to post a solution too if I get to one....
