# Thread: Penn Foster Student Suffering with Oleson Village Map!!!

1. Registered forum members do not see this ad.

If anyone is still on this thread, could I get some assistance in finding the length and property bearings of the radius on lot 5 and lot 6. Also, how do I get the rounded extension lines that are to be used for the total length dimension?(page 20 of the instructions) Any help is greatly appreciated!

2. Length and bearings of the radius? You are talking about the cul-de-sac at the end of SW 85th Avenue right? The radius is 50 feet. As far as I can tell the student is neither given nor asked to provide the length of arc for the front property line of either of the two lots you mention. Either method would be acceptable. Lengths and bearings of the other four lot lines (one of which is shared between the two lots) are given in the instructions or can be determined using the List command.

I'd use an arc to create the dashed lines you are referring to or draw a right angle and use the Fillet command to apply a radius.

3. Sorry. Yes the length and property bearings of the cul-de-sac side of the lot so I can dimension those accordingly. Thanks for the help with the extension lines. I wasn't sure if they could be done with DIM command.

4. If you copy the geometry off to the side and use the Trim command you can get the length of arc for any lot that borders on the cul-de-sac. To my knowledge you are not required to provide a bearing or delta or any other data for those property lines.

5. Maybe I'm reading too much into this? "-Label all property line bearings using ROMANS-6 for your text style. If possible place the text under the property line. -Label all property line lengths using ROMANS-6 style. Place this text above the property line where possible. Using the list command is helpful to find the length of a line, but it doesn't give the length of an arc. It will give the arc radius along with the arc's beginning angle and ending angle." I think I need to dimension them. I'll give it a go copying the geometry for the length. Thank you.

6. I believe I told you how to get the length of an arc in a previous post. The beginning/end angle of the arc for this type of drawing is a useless piece of information. In a subsequent civil project you'll be asked to provide the arc radius, delta (angle) and length of arc.

7. ReMark,

Thanks for the help with the project. I wish I would have seen this site before I was already halfway through, but with your help and the help of this site I got my 100%. Thanks so much for everything. I appreciate it more than words can say!

The instructions for drawing the title block and border are contained in the project PDF that you received. Refer to pages 16 and 17. Basically you are drawing a rectangle of 36x24 units plus some additional lines for the title block area near the bottom of the rectangle. Once that has been completed you will scale this up to fit around the Oleson Village subdivision map you have drawn. I'm pretty sure that I covered this topic in one of the many Oleson Village threads posted here (it could even be this thread that you have posted in). Have you checked?

Addendum. Take a look at post #267 of this thread re: titleblock and border.
