i know we can convert aligment to feature line , but can we convert feature line to alignment ???
Solved! Go to Solution.
Solved! by wfberry. See the answer in context.
Offset the Feature Line (say 1') Explode it. (Changes to a polyline).
Offset the Polyline back, define it as an alignment.
Out of the Box, no.
If you use third party tools, such as Sincpac-C3D, then yes. (CAPFEATURE - Create Alignment/Profile from Featureline)
If it's a corridor feature line you want to convert...
corridor contextual tab - launch pad panel - alignments from corridor
cmd line> Select a corridor feature line: pick the feature line to convert
Create Alignment dialog box - Name the new alignment, uncheck Create Profile (make next with more flexibility).
New Alignment will be indicated in corridor.
Make Profile of Alignment
corridor contextual tab - launch pad panel - profile from corridor
cmd line> select a corridor feature line: select same feature line (may want to freeze the layer the new alignment is on, making it easier to pick feature line, or use the draworder command and move the alignment back).
Create Profile - Draw New dialog box - Name the Profile and set Profile Style/Label Set as desired.
New Profile should appear in the Profile of the base line alignment used in the corridor
Does that sound reasonable?
Has this been changed in the 2.5 years since your last post Jeff? Can a figure be converted into an alignment?
Also, another suggestion was to offset the figure then explode it to convert it to a polyline. Then offset it back into place and make an alignment out of that. When I explode the figure, it converts to a 3D polyline, and I can't make an alignment from a 3D polyline, right?
No but there is a command to convert the 3d pline to a 2d pline.
Also noe that you may want to flatten the feature line of survey figure to a constant Z value prior to exploding. This will produce a 2d pline vs a 3d pline after the explode. It will also keep the arc segments.
