Corridor Daylight Not Connecting

2027 Views, 20 Replies

I have a strange problem. I have a corridor where the daylight works on
the right side without any problem, but a mirrored copy of the same
subassembly does not. On the left side each cross section of the
corridor has the daylight, but they are not being connected. I have
attached a screen shot showing what I'm talking about.

I have tried looking at the settings for the assembly, for the
subassembly, and for the corridor and can't find out why the corridor
refuses to connect just this one daylight. The surface is correct, but
the connecting of the daylight points is not happening. Anyone know why
or how to fix this?

Check to make sure you are targeting a surface with both sides.

It's targeting the surface because the slope lines from the cross
section are there. Those are the red lines that show up on the previous
post's attachment. It's just not creating the feature line between each
daylight point.

under Corridor Properties>Feature Lines, is everything "Connect"? Edited by: ivanl on Jun 2, 2010 3:10 PM

Yes, the corridor links are all selected to connect.  That's why the right side connects and anything before or after this region connect.  It is just the daylight that is on the offset alignment that will not connect.  I just don't understand why it's doing this.

 

P.S.  I hate the web format.  It is cumbersome to use and not nearly as search or user friendly as the NNTP was.

OK, now another person in my office is having the same problem.  He's got an offset assembly with a 10' sidewalk and a basic daylight subassembly.  In the corridor sections, the offset assembly doesn't show all of the subassemblies.  It cuts it off in the middle and it randomly changes where it's cut off.  I thought it might be because the offset assembly is following an alignment that is not parallel to the baseline, but then that doesn't explain why the daylight points aren't being created.  The corridor feature line for the daylights just aren't being drawn. 

 

What is going on?

And I have noticed a decrease in use as well

Could you post a small example drawing with just a small alignment and the offending assembly.   the one with one half working and one half not?   I have an idea where to look but I doubt i could explain it here.  I can open anything but 2011 drawing.

I don't know how I'd post a drawing since we heavily rely on multiple drawings, xref's, and data shortcuts.  Basically, every assembly I've created with an offset assembly that contains the basic daylight subassembly doesn't connect the daylight points.  This has happens in both Civil 3D 2010 and Civil 3D 2011 64-bit.

 

The original screen shots attached in the first post show where the left side offset assembly daylights aren't being connected.  The right side is connecting because it's on the main assembly.  Daylight subassemblies on an offset assembly don't seem to connect.

I created what I think is similar to the situation you are describing with the offset assembly.  My daylight feature lines on the offset assembly are being created.  Seems like something deeper in the way you are building your corridors. You should be able to run the etransmit command, it will pack up all the files required to post an example.  If you would like to send it directly to me please feel free to do so.

Thanks

Nick
