This training course will equip you with the powerful techniques to create Super Alignments as Control Strings. It explores the concepts of Parametric Design, and the techniques for creating and edited Super Alignments both using I.P.s and using Fixed and Floating elements (Parametric Design).
Design Features – Super Alignments
This is a one training course held in three x 3 hour session over three days in the same week.
The course focuses on the Parametric Design of Super Alignments as Control Strings (Road Centrelines).
Prerequisites: ‘Civil Design Basics’ or a good working knowledge of 12d Model. By booking a course, you affirm that you meet the requirements for 12d Model training courses.
Super Alignments can be created using Intersection Points (I.P.s) or Parametric Elements.
Usually referred to in 12d Model as ‘SA’s, the Super Alignments are intelligent objects that can reference each other so that when one changes, the other follows.
The course explores the concepts of Parametric Design, where elements are either Fixed, Floating, or Free, before moving on to defining ‘Computators’, which link the SAs together, and Chains which allow linked SAs to be updated in one operation.
At the end of the course participants will have an understanding of the ideas behind Parametric Design, and will have learned the techniques for creating and edited Super Alignments both using I.P’s and using ‘Parametric Elements’. They will be familiar with the techniques for ‘Computating’ Super Alignments where one SA strings references another for its position.
