Linear Template

Processing and Critical Sections

 Option Description The Template Drop Interval Multiplier is used in conjunction with the Interval Drop specified when the template drop was created. Its purpose is to enable designers to use larger intervals for preliminary work and easily shorten the interval as the design is refined. To determine the interval used for processing, the Interval Drop is multiplied by the Template Drop Interval Multiplier and the result is used. Horizontal Cardinal Points When set to True, the location of cardinal points of the active horizontal alignment (PC, PT, CS, etc.) are used to compute a point or template drop interval location. Vertical Cardinal Points When set to True, the location of cardinal points of the active vertical alignment (VPC, VPT, VPI, etc.) are used to compute a point or template drop interval location. External Control Points When set to True, the location of horizontal and/or vertical point controls are used compute a point or template drop interval location.

External Control Points When set to True, the location of horizontal and/or vertical point controls are used compute a point or template drop interval location. Densify Horizontal Curves When set to true, the processing along horizontal curves is at a closer interval. This option utilizes the CIVIL_DEFAULT_CURVE_STROKING configuration variable value, with extra points being computed based on the chord offset from the horizontal curve. The value defines the chord height used to calculate the extra points. If configuration variable is not set or Densify Horizontal Curves is set to False, the value defaults to 0.01. Densify Vertical Curves When set to true, the processing along vertical curves is at a closer interval. This option utilizes the CIVIL_DEFAULT_PROFILE_STROKING setting, with extra points being computed based on a chord offset from the profile. The value defines the chord height used to calculate the extra points. If the configuration variable is not set or Densify Vertical Curves is set to False, the value defaults to 0.1.

 Option Description Corridor - Element Template Element template utilizes to draw the corridor boundary in the Create Corridor tool. As a best practice, place the graphics for the boundaries in a construction class to allow for easily turning them off / on as needed. Corridor Handle Length Factor The Length Factors are a ratio of the handle length to the width of the corridor. So 1.0 would make the handle as long as the width of the corridor at that point. Corridor Handle Spacing The handle spacing either is set to a physical distance as shown or set to zero. If you set to zero you will get 11 handles per corridor regardless of its length. Any non-zero value is used as a distance between handles measured in master units along the horizontal alignment.
