Add New Overlay/Stripping Component

Adds an overlay/stripping component to a template. Milling is handled by the Overlay/Stripping component. Use this command to handle all milling/stripping type operations. This command can also be used to handle leveling (overlay) operations. For more details on overlay/stripping see Create Template Overview.

Current Component

Name

specifies the name of the new component.

Feature

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

Top Option

specifies how the top of the component is defined.

Follow Component

specifies the top of the component will follow the defined top of the component.

Follow Surface

specifies the top of the component will follow the surface.

Follow Highest

specifies the top of the component will follow the higher of the defined segments or surface.

Bottom Option

specifies how the bottom of the component is defined. The behavior of these options can be different, depending on the selected Top Option.

Follow Component

specifies the bottom of the component will follow the defined top of the component at the defined depth, but will not go above the top of the component.

Follow Surface

specifies the bottom of the component will follow the surface at the defined depth, but will not cross over the top of the component.

Follow Lowest

specifies the bottom of the component will follow the lower of the component/surface at the defined depths.

Follow Highest

specifies the bottom of the component will follow the higher of the component/surface at the defined depths.

Component Depth

sets the depth of the bottom below to the defined component line. This value cannot be negative.

Surface

defines the surface to follow along. Does not support aliasing.

Surface Depth

sets the depth of the bottom below the surface. This value cannot be negative.

Alternate Bottom Surface

if this field is populated, when alternate surfaces are created from the Roadway Designer Create Surface command, the bottom of this component will generate an alternate surface of the specified name.

Label (Component Depth/Surface Depth)

parametric label, used to change the default depth(s) from within Roadway Designer > Tools > Parametric Constraints.

Stripping Component

defines whether this component is designed to remove material or add material. Used in end-area volumes.
