Labelling super, design speed and spirals on alignment

Hi,


I am having difficulty creating an alignment label to work as i require it.


What i need to display is

 

Curve Number ??

Curve Radius??m

Superelevation ??%

Design Speed ??%

 

And then when a spiral is present

 

Spiral A length ??m

Spiral B length ??m

 

The curve number and radius are simple.  I am having a little difficulty working out how i can automate the rest of this label.  I arent opposed to making 2 different labels for both a Curve and also a SCS situation

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Cheers,

 

Frosty

2012?

 

Edit your Alignment Label Set and you will find Type entries for Design Speed and SuperElevation Critial Points.

Im using 2011 . . .  upgrading to 2012 as i am typing this however

Thanks for your response.

 

I knew how to do what you have suggested however i wasnt completely clear on what i what i was trying to do

 

I want all the data i specified to be in an individual label with a frame around it.  I have been led to believe this used to be possible in LDT?

 

Thanks in advance.

Chris, you can get the design speed into a label like that, but the cross slope will only label as a SuperElevation Critical point, even if you create an expression to make it available as Alignment Reference Text. I am not sure why, but it will only show ??? and not an actual value.

 

If you're on subscription, please submit this as a tech support case so that Autodesk at least has it on record.
