I am trying to draw a lot of driveways on this job I am working on. I have lines for the edges of my driveway that are not ruled to anything, along with my line at the R/W that was an offset to the R/W, then I removed the rules and then re-ruled it so it was also a free element not ruled to anything.
Then I created my 15' radii which are ruled to the driveway edges and the EOP. I am trying to trim all these lines so they look correct for the plans and each trim command is taking at least 10 seconds. I have a ton of lines to trim and this is going to take way too long
I am on MR5 and the required Microstation and Geopak..
I think I am starting to realize what the issue may be. My EOP line is a line with a ton of vertices. This project is basically just adding shoulder to an existing roadway. So what I did is copy in the line strings for the existing EOP, drop them, rule them with EOPA, then create a Complex Element from them.
I think the bulk of the issue is Microstation is trying to write these rules that include ruling to a line that is already very complex. Seems like its just a memory issue with Microstation again.
I think to get around this, I am going to have to rule that radius line to a separate element that sits on top of the EOP line, but that is not a very ideal solution.
They are on a server, but I am using my Virtual Desktop that is also on the server, so its about as fast of a connection as you can get. I think I kind of figured out what is causing the issue. It is for sure that long, complex EOP line. I tried my solution and its working much better. Unfortunately my solution is causing more work, so its probably coming out to about the same amount of time.
So is this issue just an inherent Microstation issue and I just have to be careful with the length and complexity of my linework? I can only hope when we get connect and access to more RAM and CPU cores that issues like this are resolved.
