More control over Subassemblies

Hi everyone!!

 

So, I am looking for ways to broaden my control over subassemblies. My issue, is that I would like to tie a 'BasicSideSlopeCutDitch' (or something comprable) subassembly to an alignment (with profile)...similar to what I would do with a 'BasicTransistionLane'. Ideally, I'd use the associated Profile to tie the verticle, while using the alignment to tie the horizontal...Problem is, I am having a hard time doing this. I am given the option of tying the BasicSideSlopeCutDitch to a surface only, which creates the corridor that looks like I am proposing to grade within a street that isn't going to be affected by my project. Any ideas?

You may be able to find a different subassembly that will do what you want. The alternative is to create your own subassembly, which could involve writing a little bit of code.

I've looked at other subassemblies with no luck. I was worried someone would say I could code one. Guess I'm learning a new C3D skill today :)

Please don't take my word for it. I know just enough about assemblies and corridors to be dangerous. I believe (having looked into the matter several years ago) that you can get by with cutting and pasting some code from other subassemblies. The real trick is compiling it in .NET so that you'll have access to it.

Its amazing 20 years ago yes I am that old we had as many subassemblies as you liked any shape you simply defined them in a table, hung them off alignments which auto joined, changed them at certain chainages oops it was not Autocad. Its still around today.
