Station and Depth Labels

125 Views, 5 Replies

I was wondering if there is a way to label the depths (FG minus EG) in the profile band. I also like to label elevations and depths only at FG grade break points and not at some station intervals. Is there a way or maybe someone has created the style & settings using a formula for this type of profile information ? Thanks in advance.

For the FG minus EG you could create a TIN volume surface and then create a profile from that surface and use it in the profile band. Don't know about the second one.

Yes,

Use a "Profile Data" band and only turn on the labels for the Vertical
Geometry points. In that label, use the value for "Profile 1 - Profile 2"
(or 2 - 1) and then in the band properties, set Profile 1 to be the FG
profile. This should produce a band that is only labled at the FG grade
breaks, and shows the depth in the label. No additional surfaces or
expressions are needed.
