Hello,

 

What can I do to show intersection information in a profile label?

 

I mean, supose I have two roads (A and B)... what should I do to show in the road A vertical profile the name and the station of road B in the properly position of this A profile?

 

example from a similar post (pdf attached):

You can insert a block at the intersection and use the project object to profile view tool and select that block.

Thanks for your reply, Matt.

 

And how can I insert a block in the intersection? Should I do it manually or set it by some alignment or intersection style?

Of course I already have an intersection object set but maybe this is not what you are talking about ...

 

Thanks again and I hope solve it :smileyhappy:

No just a regular block. It won't dynamically move if you adjust your intersection.

WISH:
The ability to project an intersection object to profile views. Better yet, let's make this an automatic thing. Project ALL intersection objects as they are created.

That what I was afraid of...

 

Later I'll try do it dynamic with visual basic :smileyhappy:

 

I share your wish. Thanks!

Hello, thanks for your reply.

I saw your video and it is interesting but, if I got it correctly, it isn't dynamic, no?

We are working in a project with dozens of alignment and we would like to analyse them dynamically. I mean, for each change we make we would like to show the intersections labels and highlight errors at the profiles and plant.

We are trying to develop a code to do that.

Thanks  lot,
