Add New End Condition Component

Adds an end condition component to a template. For more details on end conditions see Create Template Overview.

Current Component

Name

specifies the name of the new component.

Style

specifies the feature style of the new component. This option is used for display and to define the component's material.

Target Type

specifies the type of target the end condition will seek. Targets include:

  • Surface - Seeks a surface.

  • Elevation - Seeks a particular elevation.

  • Feature XY - Seeks the horizontal location of a feature of a particular surface.

  • Feature Elevation - Seeks the vertical location of a feature of a particular surface.

  • Feature XYZ - Seeks the location of a feature of a particular surface. Overrides the slope constraint of the end condition segment to seek the feature.

  • Alignment XY - Seeks the horizontal location of a particular alignment.

  • Alignment Elevation - Seeks the vertical location of a particular alignment.

  • Alignment XYZ - Seeks the location of a particular alignment. Overrides the slope constraint of the end condition segment to seek the feature.

Priority

determines the order in which end conditions are tried to find a solution. Lower numbers are tried first. This value is used where more than one end condition starts at the same point.

Benching

specifies, when on, that the set of segments of the end condition are repeated until a solution is found.

Count (Field)

specifies the maximum number of times that benching should occur. If this value is 0, then the repeat count is unlimited, and the benching end condition must find its target for it to be valid. When other than 0, then if the benching is repeated for the specified count and the target is not reached, the benching end condition is still considered successful if an end condition attached to the end of the benching end condition is successful.

From Datum

specifies, when on, that the benching uses a datum elevation and step elevation to set the benching rather than using the defined end condition segments.

Datum (Field)

specifies the elevation that represents the basis for the step elevation. Datum + Current bench elevation = n * Step Elevation.

Step Elevation

specifies the increment for benching when a datum is being used. Each bench elevation is always located at the end of the first segment (or the second point) of the benching end condition.

Horizontal Offsets

specifies a horizontal offset from the target. These values apply only if the target is a horizontal target, or has a horizontal aspect.

Vertical Offsets

specifies a vertical offset from the target. These values apply only if the target is a vertical target, or has a vertical aspect. For an Elevation target, specify the elevation here.

Rounding Lengths

specifies a length used to round the end condition. When this value is not 0.0, four additional points are added to the end of the end condition using a parabolic formula to smooth out the transition of the intersection of the end condition with the surface. This rounding effect is only applied when the target is a surface or an elevation. Other end conditions attached to the end of this one are attached to the end of the rounded section.

Test

displays the Test End Conditions dialog. For more details on testing end conditions, see Test End Conditions.
