A The Add Station Equation tool defines a station equation at a designated location on an element. If stationing has not been previously defined, then a zero starting station is also assigned. This tool can be used on a civil element or a plain MicroStation graphic. Multiple station equations can be added to an element, but should be added in order from the beginning to end of element. To remove station equations, use the Project Explorer.
