Highway design/road layout

Question

Is there a third party plug-in that will create roads and footpaths in Vectorworks(similar to the way the wall tool works)but with variable junction radii. There is such a feature that works within AutoCAD called 'Road Sketch'. I think many users would find this feature useful.

Have you tried the create road with stake objects in VW Landmark?

Using the "stake objects" tool is very useful, I have tried it. However, is there a way to create the roads without all of the data and dimensions (i.e. sketched out only). Also, this tool would be much more useful if you added the ability to set a right-of-way width. Perhaps this should be added to the wish list.

John, I will add these items to the wish list. Aside from creating a road from stake objects, you can't create the type of road you want. There is the road tool, but that's not going to do you any good if you plan to create a road that is anything other than straight or T.

Thanks for the suggestions.
