  • The elevations will be read from the active road project.
  • Primary requirement for this function is that, road surface calculations are performed in the module 'Road Design'.
  • These elevations of the road surfaces are very useful for intersection design.

Run the from the following locations:

    • By default, elevation annotations will be drawn for the entire section of road model.
    • In case, annotation not required for the entire section, define the section at these fields.

Draw Selected surfaces with given chainage interval

  • Mark the check box to refresh the list.

Draw Label

Draw as

  • Annotations can be inserted either at the respective elevations of the surface points or at elevation of the drawing file (AutoCAD command Elevation).
