  1. I have written some very long Pio scripts (50,000 char+) which have worked very well with 2010. I recently upgraded to 2012 and attempted to run these scripts. I get a message that the script has to many characters and that I should use {$ Includes} files. Question: Is there some way to enlarge the PIo script memory allocation to acomodate these long scripts? Dave Clinton Mac OS 10.6.8/ Mac Lion Mac book Pro 8 GB Ram User since 1985 greatdavidc@mac.com

  3. T: I have scripts that will produce an existing profile section of a DTM from a polyline path. One of the scripts enables one to create a proposed profile in the produced profile and create a 3D site modifier and/or apply a section with a number of 3D site modifiers along the path of the polyline (usually a street centerline). I have devised some methods to make modifications and edits, however these methods do require numerous manual steps. To make a 'Live' plan/profile is beyond my present programing ability. I have seen this feature in other software and would like it to become a part of VW.
  4. Thom: I am out of town for the next week. Yes I have improvised a set of scripts which create an existing profile from a poly centerline on a DTM. A proposed 2D polygon profile can be drawn on the existing profile and converted to a proposed grade with vertical curves and stations. Another script creates a road section with pavement with, R/W width and berm slopes, etc. A subsequent script creates a set of site modifiers along the centerline on the DTM which have the properties of the road section and elevation of the proposed grade in the profile. The final script creates fences. When the DTM is updated the proposed DTM appears as a roadway. The contours show the crown in the pavement, curb, berm and side slopes. Please furnish me your Email address and I will furnish you one of my site plans containing the roadway scripts. My email is greatdavidc@mac.com. Please feel free to experiment with them. Although they have their limitations I feel that they are much better than the VW method of creating roadways with stake objects. I am an engineer and surveyor and my programing abilities lack sophistication. It is my hope that NNA could implement an enhanced version of this methodology in future versions of landmark.
  5. This is a great wish list Item. Draw a polyline across a site model and create a profile(section) at a specified Horizontal and vertical scale with grid lines and lables and Stations. This could be a VSO. The inital profile could be existing. The ability to draw a proposed profile on the section which creates site modifiers on the site model would be a significant enhancement. The application of additional site modifiers such as a street or swale section at intervals along the proposed grade on the profile and polyline path would be useful . I have created a set of four or five scripts that enable me to do this. NNA We need this! Dave Clinton greatdavidc@mac.com
  6. I Have developed numerous PIOs. I would Like to be able to place an edit button in the object info pallet and present an an editing dialog for each segment of the (usually polylines) PIO path. Could someone provide me with an example of code or direct me to the necessary resources. Thanks, Dave C. User since 1985.
  7. I have found that sometimes the DTM - proposed gets a little weird when the original DTM was created using 3D polys and there are a lot of site modifiers. Try converting 3D polys to 3d Loci then creating the DTM then add modifiers. Good Luck Dave C.
  8. I have found that decomposing and composing do not work in PIOs. Any other suggestions?
  9. In V12.5 I was able to modify the DTM by creating 3D polys and placing them in the class 'Site-DTM-Modifiers'. I have many scripts and PIOs for roadway design using this class. It seems that V2009 does not utilize objects in this class to modify DTMs. After some experimentation it appears that the v2009 DTM can only be modified by DTM modifier objects created from the tool palette or menu commands. Am I correct in my observation? Does anyone have a work around? Dave C. user since MC4.0
