Change line to Kerb line

The function design kerb stones and draw the same along the selected line. The kerb stones are drawn with three or four continuous lines depending on the parameter defined in the dialog. The centre line of the kerb stone is defined by a separate line type to illustrate the kerb stone pattern. When you create these kerb stones, information about type and dimension will automatically be added, so that information about quantities can be extracted at a later point. The function presupposes that you have drawn a line where the kerb stone will be located. This line will be kept after the creation of the kerb stone line.

MOUS_ICO Menu: Landscape > Kerbs and Pavement > Change Line to Kerb Line
MOUS_ICO Toolbar: Kerbs and Pavement: Change Line to Kerb Line

The dialog box 'Kerb stone' will pop up. The dialog box enables to select the desired type of kerb stone to be drawn.

Stone type: Select the desired type of kerb stone from the pull down list, the dimensions (length, width and height) of the selected kerb stone will be displayed in respective lists.

Sketch: Select whether the kerb stone is to be drawn in Plane or Side (Elevation).

Draw: Select whether the kerb stone is to be drawn Centric/Along right side/Along left side of the base line.

Joint: Activate Joint by marking the check box to facilitate spacing between adjacent kerb stones in longitudinal direction for joints purpose. Define a value for joint spacing.

Dimensions: Select the desired combination of Length, Width and Height among a number of predefined dimensions. If the desired combination is not available in the list, new dimensions can be added to the list. Enter the dimension at the bottom of the respective lists and click the plus button to add the dimension to the list. It is important that, length, width and height, are to be specified, as these values will be considered in the quantity calculation of the kerb stones.

Bevel: Select whether the kerb stone is to be drawn with a line to mark the bevel of the kerb stone. Available options are None, Left or Right. Depending on the option selected Left or Right the respective edit field will be activated, so that width/radius of the bevel can be defined.

Ok: Saves the settings done in the dialog without drawing kerb stones.

Make: Saves the settings done and kerb stones will be drawn. Command prompts for:

Pick a line,arc,polyline:

Pick the line along which kerb stones are to be designed. Pick the first line if the base line consists of several continuous lines. Continue selecting all the base lines and finish with the key Return.

Initiation is OK (2 elements)

If the option Draw: Left/Right is activated command prompts for the direction.If the option Centric is opted the following prompt is not available.

Define right/left side by pointing :

Pick the side to which kerb stones are to be located on.

Object menu (NCO) on kerb stone

The kerb stone is always drawn in 1:1, but the drawing is affected by the Drawing Scale and LTSCALE. If the scale in the drawing is changed, LTSCALE is also changed and this will affect the drawing of the kerb stone. The consequence will be that the kerb stone is incorrectly drawn. Object menu (NCO) can be used to oversteer this, so that the AutoCAD Variable CELTSCALE is adjusted in relation to LTSCALE, thus kerb stone will be drawn correctly. Further, you can trim, move and erase the kerb stone lines by Object menu (NCO). The description of the kerb stones can be adjusted as well. The 'Object menu (NCO)'-menu will pop up.

Edit: Runs the dialog for kerb stone types and allows you to select a different dimension for the kerb stone you have picked or any other parameters.

Trim: Allows you to trim (cut) the kerb stone you selected by 'Object menu (NCO)'. The following command prompt will appear Pick a boundary line: Pick the line the kerb stone will be cut against. Define the side that will be cut off <0.00,0.00,0.00>: Pick the side of the boundary line where kerb stones will be removed.

Description: Run the dialog for line description so that the description can be completed or edited. If you want to add a label to the kerb stone you can use this function to do this. For further explanation about this function look under Quantities and Line description.

Update: If you want to move the kerb stone line you should do this by marking the kerb stone line that has been drawn by cross-lines. Take hold of one of the GRIPS- points of this line and move it to a different point. Run Update to make sure that other lines belonging to the kerb stone line follows. Update can also be used if the kerb stone is not drawn as desired after you have trimmed or extended the lines.

Update several: The same functionality as for Update. You will have to pick the kerb stones that you want to update.

Update all: Will update all kerb stones in the drawing.

Update LTSCALE: If you plot in a different scale than the one you used when creating the kerb stone lines it is demanded that you update the scale of the kerb stones. Update LTSCALE edits the kerb stone line you picked when running 'Object menu (NCO)'.

Update several LTSCALE: The same functionality as for Update LTSCALE. You will have to pick the kerb stones that you want to update.

Update all LTSCALE: Will update LTSCALE on all kerb stones in the drawing.

Erase: Will erase the kerb stone you picked by 'Object menu (NCO)'.

Erase several by pointing: Will erase the kerb stones you select.

Erase all: Will erase all the kerb stones in the drawing.
