Roads

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to draw a road by drawing a centerline poly and then a command such as create road from polygon" (similar to "create wall / roof from polygon")?

We do site planning in concept, and in the early stages it is awkward piecing together starights, S curve beziers and tees for a subdivision road network. Up to now we would draw the centerline, off set, smooth bezier.

Any suggestions? smile.gif" border="0

This precise capability is available in VectorWorks LandMark. It's a two-stage process: first you place stakes (objects) along a polyline at a pre-determined station interval, then you create a road from those stakes. This gives you better control over road grade, etc.
