They are pretty popular around here, Loveland, CO.

Well, lest we forget - West Texas has considerable relief. :-) Guadalupe Peak is 8,000+ from what I remember. And as far as the circles go, when viewed from the air they resemble mushrooms, which may account for their growing (yes, pun intended) popularity up here in the Temperate Rain Forest. And Scott, I was born in Houston and raised in Pasadena, but the last time I was back in the Lone Star state was 1977. Things had changed considerable then, and I'm not sure I could handle the 90/90 days any more. -- Don Reichle "King Of Work-Arounds" Barghausen Consulting Engineers Kent, WA USA LDT3 - SP1/CD3 - SP1 On WIN2K SP4 Dell 1.6 Ghz P4 512MB RAM NVIDIA 32MB AGP "Scott Wolfe" wrote in message news:15302012.1102540771109.JavaMail.jive@jiveforum2.autodesk.com... > Yes you would need more than one, and when I was in the solid modeling world, I used to tie my models to the sketch (alignment would be similar to the sketch) now changing the sketch would adjust the model dynamically. > > I still think having a few extra models would make life easier. for now, I'm going to ignore the fine detail of the radii at the intersection. > > In Texas, (much flatter than Washington) many of the companies here just provide spot shots for the new surface. so this will make life much easier. > > I like traffic circles, just havn't seen one in Texas yet.

Hey Brian; How was C3D to use on one of those?

Hi Don, It was pre-Civil3D that I designed them.

Hey Brian; I'm sorry I'm on a roll with the traffic circle puns now... Well the next time one comes around, please let us know how it went with C3D. I would imagine that if some enterprising planner wanted to place one in a hillside environment, things might get a little dicey matching the connecting streets into the design. And if you can clue us how you handled it in LDT (without giving away company secrets) I for one would greatly appreciate it. -- Don Reichle "King Of Work-Arounds" Barghausen Consulting Engineers Kent, WA USA LDT3 - SP1/CD3 - SP1 On WIN2K SP4 Dell 1.6 Ghz P4 512MB RAM NVIDIA 32MB AGP "Brian Hailey" wrote in message news:41b871bb$1_2@newsprd01... > Hi Don, > > It was pre-Civil3D that I designed them.

Hi Don, Well, each one was a bit different. Some had crosspans, some didn't. Two where 4-way, one was 3-way. Basically, I used the centerline profile, imported it into my drawing as a 3dpline, and then graded by hand from there (by hand, I mean using 3dpolys around the flowlines and pans). I didn't use any templates or anything like that. I imagine I'll do something similar with Civil3D, run the corridor up to the traffic circle and then grade the traffic circle by hand. -- Brian Hailey LDT2005 C3D2005 XP Pro - SP 2 P4 2.8GHz 1.00 GB of RAM "Don Reichle" wrote in message news:41b8887f$1_2@newsprd01... > Hey Brian; > > I'm sorry I'm on a roll with the traffic circle puns now... > > Well the next time one comes around, please let us know how it went with > C3D. > > I would imagine that if some enterprising planner wanted to place one in a > hillside environment, things might get a little dicey matching the > connecting streets into the design. > > And if you can clue us how you handled it in LDT (without giving away > company secrets) I for one would greatly appreciate it. > > -- > Don Reichle > "King Of Work-Arounds" > Barghausen Consulting Engineers > Kent, WA USA > LDT3 - SP1/CD3 - SP1 > On WIN2K SP4 > Dell 1.6 Ghz P4 > 512MB RAM > NVIDIA 32MB AGP > > > "Brian Hailey" wrote in message > news:41b871bb$1_2@newsprd01... >> Hi Don, >> >> It was pre-Civil3D that I designed them.

Any thoughts on breaking a circle of the proper radius by a hundredth, so you wouldn't have a continuous alignment? I've not had the proper circumstance to try it out yet, but for most of the circle (between corridors) you could make use of an assembly, seems to me. We would want to encourage safe, low speed, driving practice so I imagine the use of a shed section draining to the outside of the circle's alignment; not to the inside like NASCAR. :-) -- Don Reichle "King Of Work-Arounds" Barghausen Consulting Engineers Kent, WA USA LDT3 - SP1/CD3 - SP1 On WIN2K SP4 Dell 1.6 Ghz P4 512MB RAM NVIDIA 32MB AGP "Brian Hailey" wrote in message news:41b8913d$1_3@newsprd01... > Hi Don, > > Well, each one was a bit different.

Actually, the ones I designed where rather small. I didn't do an alignment around the traffic circle, just the two alignment through it and then hand graded the rest. I suppose an alignment around it with a template might work but it seems like it would be more work than necessary, especially if you have drainage pans crossing through it. I've attached screen shots of the three so you can see them. -- Brian Hailey LDT2005 C3D2005 XP Pro - SP 2 P4 2.8GHz 1.00 GB of RAM Attachment not added (too many attachments): "tc-3.PNG"

I guess I'm thinking of the Industrial Strength round-abouts like they have in New Jersey (that's Joisey to you Joe B). Looks like the outside radius in your locale is only about the size of a CDS. You're right about not using an alignment for things of that size. More trouble than it's worth. -- Don Reichle "King Of Work-Arounds" Barghausen Consulting Engineers Kent, WA USA LDT3 - SP1/CD3 - SP1 On WIN2K SP4 Dell 1.6 Ghz P4 512MB RAM NVIDIA 32MB AGP "Brian Hailey" wrote in message news:41b8c163_3@newsprd01... > Actually, the ones I designed where rather small.

Sorry Don, I've been kind of stuck to the DFW flatland area for the last little while. Although my last project was a resort project in Teluride, CO.

I do miss the Emerald City. I keep thinking of moving back to that area.

I miss the mountains and snow and evergreens, but not the rain. maybe I could live there in the summers. :-) or just west of the cascades. I do subdivisions on a per lot fee out of my home office. might be hard to find that kind of gig there.
