Linear Template Origin from Reference File Element

I have divided up several ramp corridors from an interchange into different DGN files.  Now I am attempting to apply a linear template in the gore area for grading purposes.  I initially tried to create a separate file for only the linear templates.  When I did this, no matter what ramp I used as the origin for the linear template, the program crashed.

Are there any know limitations or defects that would prevent me from using geometry from a reference file as a linear template origin?

  • Follow up:  Right after I posted this I noted the following in the linear template DGN file:

    • It was started from a 2d seed file and therefore only contained the default 2d model.  I had attached all the ramp corridors default model only
    • I attached an existing ground terrain model and set it active.  By doing this the default 3d model was created and attached to the default model, as expected
    • I then attempted to create the linear template and everything worked fine.  It appears there is an issue if there is no default 3d model in the file when creating the linear template.
