Naviate Road 2021.3 Release

Naviate Road

Changes are available in 2021.3, 2020.13 and 2019.23. 

Delete Duplicates

Searches for objects with duplicate in ”Unique” property value and deletes the oldest object by comparing the “Timestamp” property. The newest object get’s the Handle of the old object to ensure any connection or projection to the old object is maintained by the new object. Properties specified in support file NVPropDeleteDuplicates.txt is also copied from the old object. Can be used to e.g. remove old solids for a part of a corridor when only that part has been regenerated.

Simplified Surface 

Creates Simplified Surface-Breaklines that are sampled from an existing ground surface to produce perpendicular 3dPolys at selected intervals along an Alignment. Add the created breaklines to a new Simplified Surface that then has less triangles than e.g. the Point Cloud Surface, and then works more smoothly when creating Surface Solids or using Naviate Volume calculation etc. 

Create Piles 

Creates Piles between two surfaces. The location of the top of the piles is taken from the selected AutoCAD points. The elevation of the top ends and the bottom ends are calculated from the given surfaces. 

Create Sheet Piles

Create a sheet piles along a line that can be either a 3D polyline or featureline at the top of the sheet piles. The heights of the lower end of the sheet piles are calculated from a given surface. 

Export Corridor (NVCorPXY)

Changed the placement for the translation file to make it more user friendly. Added NaviateExcludeCodes.txt to be able to exclude codes to export.

Solid from Corridor (NvCorShapeToSolid, NVCorLinkToSolid) 

Added support for multiple Baselines and updated the support for regions in the commands. Also added support for Dreffed corridors.

Copies all Property Sets from the Corridor to the exported solids. This also means it is possible to preset Properties for the Solids, on the Corridor, e.g. Status, Note etc.

Reads Layer/Code Prefix and Suffix from the new support file NVCodeSetStyleSetFix.txt

Naviate General

Changes are available in 2021.3, 2020.13 and 2019.23.

Update Properties 

Updates Naviate Property formula calculations in all property sets on selected objects. 
Update properties

Nudge Solid

Unions two solids, but if Naviate (AutoCAD) fails to union them, Naviate nudges (moves) the second solid in selected direction, by an entered Nudging value, eventually several times, until Naviate succeeds to union them. The Nudging Factor is used to multiply the Nudging Distance every time Naviate fails to union.

Export Corridor (NVCorPXY)

Changed the placement for the translation file to make it more user friendly. Added NaviateExcludeCodes.txt to be able to exclude codes to export.
Export corridor

Select objects with property

Select objects with property: added a button to View Data which opens Naviate Property. 

Naviate Property

Naviate Property: added Zoom To and Select to move and view the different objects while still in the dialog. Also added possibility to search for 0 to find objects without added information in a property.

Match Properties

Updated and cleaned up the dialog box

Union Solid

Now filters out 0-solids and can now handle any property sets.

Paste Properties 

Added Property Filter option. 

Copy Properties 

Added error messages on the commandline.  

Verify Assembly

Now refers to Change Assembly Path as a solution for Assemblies with faulty search paths.

Export to CSV

If appending or overwriting an existing CSV-file, the command now checks that the columns about to be exported, match the columns in the file and warns if not.
