Updates in Novapoint Road

Version 18.30FP4b 64 bit

Bug Fixes

All versions:

  • Distance between two Alignments… (Avstand mellom to linjer). Support for variable start station.
  • Alignment Design – Data – Minimum values now possible to set both default radius and default length of curve.
  • Alignment Design – Draw and alignment from drawing. Corrected missing chainage missing for Dralin 4.
  • Alignment Design – Min/max values for reference points fixed.
  • Road Model – now supports elevations from edge alignments with transition curves. Previously the elevation from the start of the transition was applied to the whole curve.
  • Road Model – Cut and Fill elements – Rounding. Left and right side can now have different values.
  • Draw cross sections from road Model… – terrain is no longer trimmed with very steep terrain.

Updates to: Draw 3D Object along an alignment…

  • Road - 3D Presentation - Draw 3D Object along an alignment…
    • 3D Presentation – 3D Objects along an alignment… Major improvements including EXCEL export, table text to drawing and improved user interface.
    • See Detailed description here: Draw 3D Object along an alignment…



Updates in Novapoint Railway

Version 18.30FP4b 64 bit

Bug Fixes

All versions:

  • Improvements to Alignment Design from surveyed data… (NovaTrack)
  • Alignment Design – Data – Minimum values now possible to set both default radius and default length of curve.
  • Railway Model – Cut and Fill elements – Rounding. Left and right side can now have different values.
  • Draw cross sections from Railway Model… – terrain is no longer trimmed with very steep terrain.

Updates in Novapoint Tunnel

Version 18.30.FP4b 64 bit
  • Many improvements and corrections are implemented in the user interface for defining the cross-section geometry for cross tunnels and niche types.
  • Many improvements and corrections are implemented in the user interface for defining the niche- and cross tunnels groups.
  • Many improvements and corrections are implemented for the 3D-drawing functionality for niches and cross tunnels, but still the geometry can be drawn inaccurately for some situations. The resulting geometry must always be verified by the user.
  • It is now possible to define whether the niche follows the longitudinal profile of the road/railway or is horizontal.
  • The option for open or closed cross tunnel ends is now implemented.
  • The niches and cross tunnels do not cause strange geometry in the user interface nor in the AutoCAD drawings for geology and rock support anymore.
  • Previously the 3D-drawing crashed when the user specified certain layer names. This is now corrected
  • Cross tunnels can now be superimposed with niches in the 3D-drawing.
  • Niches and cross tunnels are now included in the plan drawings.
  • The distance plan drawings crashed in some situations. This is now corrected
  • When switching between different calculation surfaces in the dialog for the distance plan drawing, the calculation button sometimes stayed inactive. This is now corrected.
  • An approximation error in the user interface for LandXML export caused for some situations an error message stating that the default ordered interval was outside the tunnel geometry, even it was not outside the interval. This is now corrected.
  • For LandXML export of tunnel cross-sections connected to a railroad, the rails were included in the LandXML cross-section and for some situation an extra line was included as well. This is now corrected.
  • For some situations the volume calculation and 3D-drawing of the volume froze. This is now corrected.
  • For some situations the volume calculation resulted in a negative result. This is now corrected.
