Place Named Boundary Civil Plan

Workflow

  1. Access or reference horizontal geometry.
  2. Graphically ID the horizontal geometry.
  3. Select the Drawing Seed to be used.
  4. Set the scale as well as the Start and Stop Station values.
  5. Modify other fields as needed.
  6. Enable the Create Drawing toggle.
  7. Data point in the DGN file to place boundaries, then another data point to Accept.
  8. Select OK on the Create Drawing dialog.
SettingDescription
Drawing Seed Specifies the drawing seed that sets default values for all of the values on the dialog except the start and stop locations. Also contains definitions for what seed files are used to create the cross sections drawing and seed models including how the drawings are positioned on the sheets.
Detail Scale Sets the scale at which the named boundary will be placed.
Name Enter name of the named boundary.
Note: MicroStation models cannot contain the following characters in the name or group: \\/:*?<>|\"\t\n&=,'
Description Enter brief description for the new group.
Group Selects the named boundary group. You can also create a new group by selecting New from the drop-down.
Note: MicroStation models cannot contain the following characters in the name or group: \\/:*?<>|\"\t\n&=,'
Name Enter name of the new group.
Description Enter brief description for the new group.
Start Location Sets the begin station.
Stop Location Sets the stop station.
Length (Available only when By Length is selected) Sets the length, along the path element, of the named boundary element. Also determines the location, along the path, of subsequent boundary elements. If you use the Measure Distance tool next to the field the measured distance displays in the Length field.
Left Offset (Available only when By Length is selected) Sets the distance from left of the path. If you use the Measure Distance tool next to the field, the measured distance displays in the Left Offset field.
Right Offset (Available only when By Length is selected) Sets the distance from right of the path. If you use the Measure Distance tool next to the field, the measured distance displays in the Right Offset field.
Overlap (Available only when Place an array of named boundaries along a path is selected) Sets the distance, along the path element, by which the named boundary element is to be extended. Positive values extend it and negative values shorten it. If you use the Measure Distance tool next to the field, the measured distance displays in the Overlap field.
Boundary Chords (Available only when By Length is selected) Sets the number of chords in a named boundary. More the chords, better is the stroking of the named boundary in a curve.
Create Drawing Opens the Create Drawing dialog after creating the named boundary to create a saved view from the selected named boundary and automate dynamic views.
Show Dialog When enabled, a dialog with additional parameters set by the Drawing Seed is shown.
