Top mesh changes end conditions when changing feature definition

Hi, 

When I change my corridor feature definition from Design to Final Design, my end condition changes in one spot. I am changing my feature definition to create a top mesh to create a terrain. Why is this happening and how do I stop it? This is making my final design terrain model extend past the limits of my ROW. Working in a CDOT Workspace. 

Bonus Question: In my cross section view, my Terrain Model (Survey/Original Ground) isn't showing up. It is still set as the active terrain. How do I get that back?

    Not sure about the CDOT workspace but I would suggest that the change in corridor feature definition has applied a different template drop interval multiplier in your corridor.

    For example if your default template drop was 5m when you created your corridor and the design stage multiplier was 2 you would have a template drop then of every 10m not 5m. if the final design multiplier was 1 then you would have a template drop of 5m. Your case it may well be in feet...  You can check this by going to open roads standards select the corridor feature definition. View the properties of this feature definition at the top of the list you will see the template interval drop multiplier. See screen shot below. We use these different corridor feature definitions to speed up the corridor processing times. In the ANZ workspace we say what the actual drop interval is so it is clear to our users.

    Also check the settings on the cardinal points for each corridor feature definition that may have an effect on your end conditions as well.

    The bonus question!! Is the active terrain on in your default 3d-model as the cross sections only cut the 3d model not the default model.

    Hope this helps.
