Subassembly Composer Help (Peter Funk?)

Attached is a shoulder sub I am trying to complete.

My sticking point is defining the "slope", which I want to be an input parameter, from P6 to P7.

L7 needs to tie to this slope while maintaining the superelevation.

Any guidance would be appreciated..

NVIDIA Quadro 2000
SSD Boot

For P7 use an Intersection Point. 

Type: Intersection: TwoPointsSlope

Point1: P6

Slope1: UserSlope

Point2: P5

Slope2: L1.slope 

 

You will then define the two links from P6 to P7 and from P5 to P7. 

 

Hope that helps! Sincerely, "Not Peter Funk"

Kati,

How do you modify the sub to use any of the super choices?

As I have it, it only uses the right outside shoulder.

There are lots of different ways you can do it depending on what you are looking for. Do you want the user to pick what they want? If so you would need to have an Input Parameter that would give them the ability to pick (either using the Superelevation type that already exists or define your own Enumeration). You may also want to incoporate the SE.HasLeftSO=true (or whichever you are looking for)  to confirm that the superelevation exists before trying to use it.

I can't seem to open this .pkt file in SA Composer 2012. (Is this maybe a 2011 or 2013 file)? Could someone please post a screen shot of the preview screen so I can see what you're talking about. I think I have a similar issue. Thanks in advance.

It is a 2013 Subassembly.

Attached is a screenshot of it.
