Percent input for profiles (tangent) with free station

Percent input for profiles (tangent) with free station

If you have two tangents in Civil and you want to adjust one tangent with a fixed percentage value, then the station-value is always kept as a fixed value. However, it would be nice if you could "detach" the stationing and adjust the stationing by entering the percentage value. In my example, I want the right tangent to have a percentage value of 3%, and let 1% for the left site:

I.e. the right tangent would be adjusted in the direction of the yellow arrow (direction of the left tangent) on the percentages against the left.

 

The input in percent could work e.g. via the dynamic input.

Furthermore, there are 3 values that can and should be adjustable (lock 1 of the and let C3D adjust the other 2):

  • Height
  • Station
  • Percentance

This SHOULD have been available to choose instead of "playing around manually" till someone gets the desired result. I used to work with Bentley Microstation and that was not an issue at all. I am aware of the differences between CAD-Plattforms but I really don't understand the struggle for Autodesk to solve this. Perhaps a forum-admin could enlighten me on the issue.

 

Thanks for your time.

Also if you do a lot of zoom IN, those triangles grips are not showed...

This is a good idea. We will keep this on our list for the future, but we do not plan to implement this in the immediate future.

Hello Mr. Yarris

 

Thank you for your response. 

I hopep it would be rather sooner than later, but I appreciate that you consider that matter for a future development.
