This is second part in a 3-part series about displaying EOP or ROW labels in Section Views. The first part was talking about setting up markers, labels and code set styles. In each of these 3 posts you may refresh memory about some available settings in Label Style Composer, revisit Code Set Styles and displaying objects in Section View. Once all steps are completed your final result should look like this.
So let’s start with phase 2 after the jump.
The first part was how to set up ROW or EOP label and marker. Now we are continuing with setting up the assemblies.
1. Create the Assembly using the command found on Home ribbon Create Design pane Corridor > Create Assembly…
Set the name of the Assembly to EOP, the Code Set Style to the one that was edited/created in the previous procedure. In this example the code set style is called EOP.
2. Press OK to continue.
3. Open the Tool Palettes to access the subassemblies by clicking on tool palettes icon in Home ribbon>Palettes pane or pressing CTRL+3.
4. The subassembly we will be using is called LinkOffsetOnSurface. Select that Subassembly under the Generic tab.
Fill in the properties for that subassembly to match the contents below:
5. Change the Offset from Baseline to -12 and insert again (assuming your pavement is 12 feet wide). The result you will end up with should be like this:
6. Don’t worry about the location of the EOP lines. At this phase, the number 12 was just used as an offset to help differentiate between the two sides (right and left). The elevation of the subassembly will change accordingly when the surface is targeted later.
7. Select the right EOP label and right click.
8. Select the Subassembly properties and under the Information tab, change the Name to Right EOP.
9. Select the Left EOP label and repeat step 8.
10. Go to Corridors > Create Corridor
11. Select the same alignment
12. Select the EOP assembly you created in the steps above.
13. Name the Corridor as EOP.
14. Click on the ellipse […] button under the Target column for the region (or entire corridor) and set the surface and horizontal targets. The surface controls what elevation the EOP markers are placed at and the Right and Left alignments control what offset the markers will be placed at. Click OK.
15. Your corridor should be created.
This concludes the creation of the corridor the ROW. The next phase is Displaying it all in Section View.
