Roadway Designer Order of Processing Template Points/Components/Rules/End Conditions

This is generally the order in which InRoads solves the location of points and components at each template drop...

  1. Template is dropped, and points are placed according to the point constraints stored in the template.
  2. Parametric constraints are applied as defined in the template, and in the designer
  3. Point controls are applied to the assigned points, overriding the corresponding constraint, and all points that are constrained back to the point controlled point will be recalculated.
  4. Component display rules are solved based on the current position of all points.
  5. End conditions are solved by extending designated segments along the specified slope to seek their targets

  • 3. "Point Controls are applied to the assigned points". Assigned points here means those with parametric constraints assigned, only?

    What happens when the assigned point is at the bottom of a parent-child relationship? I.e a child. The constraints are reversed? The child is now the parent?
