This option has been written for use with the “Design > Roads > Create ramps/driveways” option and generates computated super alignments strings from a single string to form a defined number of links (shape) defined by the user.

Users can add their shape via the “grid” entry or via a “template” and the produced strings are all created as Element method SA strings. Meaning if the base kerb return/traffic island was to be modified these additional links/strings would also be modified.

For a demonstartion on the use of this option, please check out “Topic 3” in the 12d Training Workflow video linked here.  A copy of the spreadsheet shown in the video can be downloaded from the resourses tab on the website.
