I need a pit configuration, and I use the offset command to offset a base polyline to first 10 m and then 3 and so on.. is there a way to do this in an automatically way, that you can choose the lenght of the offset for each "offset" (i.e. 1st 10 m, 2nd 3, 3rd 10 m, 4th 3 m, and so on. I am actually using civil 3D.
I need an offset lisp routine to offset a selected line a set distance on each side of the selected line and change the layer of the offset lines to the current layer, and then keep prompting me to select the next line for offsetting until I'm finished.
I am trying to create a station-offset label style that will drop the trailing zeros in the offset section - e.g. 15' instead of 15.00', but if the offset is not at a whole number, e.g. 15.01, etc. it will display the entire offset.
I created two expressions: IF(OFFSET-TRUNC(OFFSET)=0,.1/12,.00000001/12)
and this one: IF(OFFSET-TRUNC(OFFSET)!=0,.1/12,.00000001/12)
I then created two offset components, one called truncated, and one called full, and assigned the heights to match the expressions.
I have attached the file, the style is ACHD-Sta Off-Rt [copy]
I am using MAYA 2012 on Windows 7. When I import audio (.WAV) it works fine, but if I offset it to a later frame the waveform moves to the right frame but when scrubbing the audio stays at 0. Making if very difficult to lip-sync. I have tried re-caching, playing the scene all the way through and all other options I have seen online.
I have a drawing that has a connection to OS background map data which is an SDF file.
I want to create new entities in their own new autocad layer based on an offset value from a line in the SDF data.
For example I want to create a new line in a new layer that is say 1.0m offset from a kerb line that appears in the SDF file called OSMMLINE.
I do not want to add these new entities to the SDF data.
When I try to use the offset command Map starts to "populate feature Cache" which takes several minutes, then I can use the offset command in the usual way and create a new line - which "properties" says is in a feature class layer called OSMMLINE(1).
(I have tested this on both Map 2010 and Map 2014 but it could be happening in other AutoCad platforms)
when offsetting a polyline with a shallow deflection, the newly created polyline is created incorectly.
I have a 2 segment polyline with a 0D03'00" deflection. when I offset it, the vertex of the new polyline is created in the wrong location. On a polyline with a 0d04'00" deflection, offset works correctly.
If I explode the polyline, offset the lines and fillet them, the vertex is correct.
Attached is the final result. The red polyline is the polyline with a 3' deflection and the green polyline has a 4' deflection. when offset the vertex's should land at the center of the circles that are drawn but the red polyline vertex is incorrect by 0.00654456.
im stuck on an assignment, below are the instructions.
Row 2: Use L_15:red
- Starting with the right side of row 2, connect midpoints of the cell with a line to form a rotated square dimond (which i did)
- Next offset each visible line segment 8' ft. in all directions till all areas are filled with the pattern trimming and filleting as requred to define each as in row 1.
- The next square in the row, sub-divide the inner square by drawing lines from the midpoints to form an inner sqare, the offset 4'ft. in each direction maintaing the new areas created and fill as before to define the areas. Remember to use the same logic as in row 1, fill all areas defined by red line boundaries.
- the next square in the row sub-divide the inner aware by drawing lines from midpoints to form another inner diamond, then offset 2' ft in each direction as in previous operations.
- continue this logic of sub-division and density till you finish the second row.
- when you finish you should have a row of 5 squares movies from tighter density to lighter density of lines from left to right.
i got past the 2nd cell, sort of stuck on the 3rd, 4th, 5th (going from right to left) how the next three cells would look like (on the second column)
I am drawing golf course features and I need to reduce the number of nodes on an a line that has been offset from a splined polyline. I want to tweak the shape of the offset line but there are a trillion nodes which makes it impossible.
I've been using autocad for quiet a few years, I can do most of what i want but I might be missing some basic knowledge. I've been creating some template for drawing which include different layout A4, A3, landscape and portrait.
If I use plot/print using cutepdf or adobepdf as a printer the results are good (print the same than the preview).But when I use publish using dwg to pdf then my layout are shifted to the right outside of the printing boundary.
Coincident Constraint to be offset? I'm trying to constrain a table and a MTEXT object together but they are "mating" at their Insertion Points. I cannot successfully "move" these two points, keeping them constrained.
I have placedmy own Origin in the center of the screen. I am constantly using construction lines from this origin using the offset command with various offset lengths. What I am trying to achieve is to enter a numeric value and press enter on a continuous cycle. Without Selecting construction line, Offset, Distance, Select Line, Select side. I have tried using Macro and CUI in the manage tab without success. I understand the concept, but lack the knowledge to succeed. I have a nose bleed from continuously hitting a wall.
I am using OffsetTaget.isValid in my subassembly.But i realize that when i put this formula it checks the whole drawing for that target and if the target polyline exist even a piece of polyline in the drawing then C3D considers it for all sample lines.Is ıt possible to be able to check each single sample line if it is going to intersect that target polyline or not?
I'm trying to create two offset alignments (one on each side of my centerline alignment). For some reason I can only create an offset alignment on the left side of my CL alignment, but not the right side.
I have a polyline that meets itself back at the beginning. It should be closed and appears to be. I joined several lines to get the polyline. When I try to offset it I can only offset towards the inside and not the outside. Is there a reason for this or am I doing something wrong?
I have an offset assembly and I have forced the skew of the second alignment. (Is a simple basic lane + a linkslopebetweenpoints and a markedpoint placed at the left extreme of a basic road assembly)
As you can see, there are errors at the area in which we have the greater angle between cross sections. What are the limits of this C3D feature ? Above more that "x" degrees of cross sections directions difference C3D are going to fail ?
I am trying to find a routine that will allow me to offset an arc by a distance and to a scale.
The offest command is very limited as to how far I am able to offset without the boject completely vanishing.
I am trying to make a flat pattern from a cone or something close to it. The routines and programs that I have found do not quite accomplish this very accuratll. They are always off on the upper and lower arcs and on the distance between the arcs. Tho this would not completely sovle my problem, it would allow me to get the distance between the top and bottom correct.
I have a rectangle shape (a 3D polyline) as in the attached DWG. I want to Offset, Scale, Extend (call it whaever you wish) so that the new 3D polyline (after the scale, offset or extend) is at the same plane as the original one.
Obviously the Z values of the new 3D polyline will be different from the original.
I drew the first sketch. i want to insert an offset plane. i use the plane tool, mark 2 sketch entities and a plane is formed. i move it, but it moves only on the plane of the sketch, the dialog box for the distance doesn't appear.
I have a diamond pattern that needs to be a polyline and also needs to be offset on each side of the diamond. When I create a polyline out of one diamond pattern and then try to offset the polyline pattern a certain distance on each side, it will only let me offset to one side and not the other.
When I use link offset to surface and attach on left side, still extend to right. I am targeting a slope stake line polyline that exists on both sides of the roadway, works fine on right side. Documentation indicates that a negative offset value is needed to use to the left. How do I use negative value and target a polyline?
What I have is a round part with a few features. I drew it in Inventor until I got stuck with the last feature, which happens to be a hole, on the OD of the part that is at an angle (don't care what angle so long as it doesn't intersect with the hole next to it).
I have screen shot? both the mechanical 2D version and my 'so far' Inventor version, how I can go about modeling this feature?
Btw, the hole this has to connect to is the one highlighted green in the bottom pic or the only one dimensioned in the top pic.
All previous releases of Inventor before 2013 would display the name of the parameter that controls the offset value of a plane. While editing an offset plane you could see the name either in the title of the pop up or by holding your cursor over the parameter value. In release 2013 I have been unable to find the parameter name anywhere when editing the plane. I have a lot of equations in my models. Being able to track down bugs is difficult enough without not knowing what parameter I'm looking at.
Is there a setting I need to turn on/off to get the parameter name to display again?
