Description

Quick Profile Transition

Defines the profile of an element by matching the slope and elevation of adjoining elements. Depending on the configuration of adjacent elements, either a single crest/sag curve is created or a reverse transition.

Profile By Constant Elevation

Defines a flat profile at a given elevation for the entire element.

Profile By Slope From Point

Defines a profile of an element by computing a slope from a 3D point.

Profile By Slope From Element

Defines an element's profile by projecting a fixed slope from another element with a design profile.

Profile By Variable Slope From Element

Defines an elements profile by projecting a variable slope from another element with a design profile. This command differs from the Profile by Slope command only in the fact that you have additional options. Specifically, you can define a range instead of the entire element, and there are multiple methods of slope rather than fixed slope alone.

Profile By Vertical Offset From Element

Defines the profile of an element based on a vertical offset. The results are similar to Profile by Variable Slope command, except that, instead of transitioning two slopes, two vertical offsets are used.

Profile By 3D Element

Produces a profile (in profile space) from a 3D element in the drawing.

Create Civil Rule Feature

Assigns Civil Geometry rules to elements created by tools other than civil geometry commands.
