Offset Alignment from widening

234 Views, 13 Replies

I have created a widening then created an 11-foot offset from the widening for some reason I cannot create a 22-foot offset or an d11-foot from the first offset. I can go as high as 22.5 but no more. There are no curves in the alignment only linear tapers. Any ideas why I cant get to 22-feet?

Thank you

Would any of those linear tapers be reduced to a zero length in an offset operation?

the first thing that comes to mind is that one of the user specified inputs causes a condition that cannot be solved at the offset requested. is there a way for you to check this other than tweaking them a bit and seeing what happens.

 

I do not have a bunch of experience with tapers and widenings so I am reaching a bit here. Just thought I might think out loud for a bit and maybe you would have a light bulb moment.

Let's face, sometimes Joe's generator needs an extra cord of wood.

I don't have much experience with them either. I thought the out going taper (which I am hiding for lack of need) may too short to solve the offset but I tried extending and still no offset.
Thank you
