The same dialog box is reachable via Change…, the title then is Change road/railroad instead of New road/railroad, the functionality is otherwise alike.

Find it here:

MOUS_ICO Menu: Noise > Roads and railroads > New


MOUS_ICO Menu: Noise > Roads and railroads > Dialog box > New road/railroad


nco: Select a road entity

MOUS_ICO Popup menu: New

In this dialog box, we pick the center line of the road or railroad and give a road identification for the first profile.

Road identity


Prior to defining the horizontal alignment line of the road, preliminary work has to be done in the terrain model, see Preparing of roads in the terrain model.

It is recommended to draw a line in advance using standard AutoCAD functions (see Roads and Railroads), rather than drawing it “directly” here.
