To place the balanced cantilever segmental builds over the interior supportlines as well as add closure pours, do the following.

  1. On the Home ribbon tab, select the Place Segmental > Place tool in the Superstructure group


    Note: The same Template Name should still be selected, but if not, select SegBox0600.
  2. In the Place Cantilever Segmental tool settings dialog, select the segment template to use:
    1. Check the Seg. Length option and type a value of 9@10:9@10.
      Tip: The colon (":") is used to separate the number at length used in the back and ahead station cantilevers. A semicolon (";") can be used to change the number at length values within a cantilever.
    2. Check the Pier Seg. Length option and type a value of 5:5 (m).
    3. Select Segment for the Feature Definition.
  3. Data point on supportline 2.
