Is there a way to create a typical based on a template from either the side slope tool or the corridor tool? I am in the process of doing some value engineering and would like to supply this data to show the engineer what I am using.
You could create a HAL/VAL (Horizontal Line) that has Cut on Left and Fill on Right Side (create a nice curvy OG that goes from Fill to Cut all the length of the alignment so you can place different Templates at different Stations in order to build your Typical Drawings) and create a copy of your Template so that it shows what you are doing on Left and Right side for Cut or Fill and the Template Details for the body of the road and Edge details - and then you can create Cross Sections Output from that - you may need a template specifically to plot these things - and you may want to add standard annotation boxes that allow you to drag and drop onto the "Typical" sections to describe the conditions of side slopes etc.
It should be relatively easy to do this on a dummy alignment in a Master project using Copy and Paste of instructions between projects
You would have to label the Station ranges over which the Template is being applied manually however - Use the word "Varies" as much as possible to pay it forwards ....(Joking)!
Bahaha. Last paragraph is the best thing I have seen this week.I vote to change it though to MSU: Make shit up
Ill give this a try and let you know
Retrieving data ...
