Viewing an Offset Asembly in Section Editor

518 Views, 2 Replies

I've built a corridor using only an Offset Assembly.  The assembly represents a new path alongside an existing road and I wanted to use the centerline of the road as the main baseline.  I have successfully built the corridor and was able to build the Sample Line and Sample Views.  However, I am not able to view the sections in the Section Editor.  As soon as I try to get into the Section Editor, I get the error message "No station found".  The stations are large, 500+00 and up, so I tried changing the BOP to 0+00, but that had no effect.  I tend to think it's a result of not having any subassembly attached directly to the main alignment, only to offset alignments.  I'm running the 2011 version.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

If you place a LinkWidthandSlope subassy on the main baseline assy (with Omit Link set to Yes and be sure you delete link and point codes,) your offset assy will display in the Edit Sections window.

I guessed I was missing something.  That was it.  Thanks for the help.
