So I am trying to recreate a road:
I made a road in conceptstation of 5 lanes from left to right (blue, primary road).
Then I made road of 2 lanes from right to left (red, secondary road).
I try to make a ramp connection to connect them. But I get the error: Invalid geometry to create ramp.
When I move the secondary road further away from the primary road, it also does not work.This sometimes helped in the past, to move the PI's further away and create more distance between the primary and secondary road.
The roads are vertically aligned, so there are no great differences in height.
Can somebody explain to me what this error means? And what I can do to run the functionality correctly?
Also, any other tips on how to recreate this complex interjunction would be appreciated.
Dividing roads comes out really choppy, and the lane markings will come out incorrect. I am using templates of my own, as we have other lane markings in the Netherlands.When I try to divide a road with 2 of my own templates, the program crashes. I can however replace on of the 2 templates by a "Standard" ConceptStation template, that will work but the connection itself will look crazy:
This is why I want to use the connect ramp function.
it is difficult to reproduce this dataset and encounter the same errors. Could you use our Secure File Upload to share your dataset with us? You can get this sort of error when there isn't enough to fit a ramp, the workaround is to make our ramp legs and the transitions smaller.
We would also like to investigate the crashing problem you've experienced with the Divide Road tool.
Hi Simon, thank you for your response.
I added some room between the primary and secondary road and creating the ramp works.
However, it would be of great help if you can investigate why the divide road tool crashes with my own templates.
They are located here: Templates > Road > Beneluxplein, the ones that are favorited are the ones I use.
Could you post your dataset to ftp://ftp.bentley.com/pub/incoming, let me know the filename and I will investigate the crash.
For whoever who is wondering how it is resolved: The issue is resolved by NOT using the divide road tool. I used the ramp connection tool.
The ramp connection tool works best when using the 'tapered' type, as you can edit the ingoing and outgoing road templates.
When a ramp connection does not work properly, it could be that the distance between the roads is too small, the axes are not aligned or differenced in height.
But sometimes the reason why a ramp connection is not created is unclear, so it is a bit trial and error.
Hi i have similar problem. I tried all advice which are here but without succes. Did you find some orkflow which helps? Thanls for info
