What's the best way to model an alley with a 90 degree angle (turn). Do I treat it as an intersection with a zero radius? My typ section is 15 feet width with a 4% slope down to the center of pavement. "V" bottom. Not sure how to get it to model the outside corner and also eliminate the inside overlay. Thanks,
I don't know if I would necessarily use the Intersection tools, but I would make a multi-baseline corridor to handle this.
If you're not familiar the feature, a Corridor can have multiple alignments defined as Baselines. Each will have its own design profile and assembly.
See the attached simple corridor with 90 degree corner.
I don't see the advantage of using a multi-baseline Corridor?
One baseline, and you would not have to monitor and update the common PVI across two profiles.
Here is a blog post of mine covering this
and a similar topic with sample drawing is here
Good show mate! Let's kick it up a notch.. A mitered interior corner cleanup for the intersection:
One corridor, one assembly, one profile...fully dynamic.
I like Fred's result as he is able to include cross secitons in the mitered area. Do you care to expound?
