Longitudinal Profile - Scale and Exaggeration
The design elements are always draw to 1:1 horizontal scale and the specified exaggeration. The base scale specified in the style is for style elements and it is uniform scale (for both horizontal and vertical).
Base scale value is the basis for the parameters of style elements.
All parameter values such as grid size, strip height, radius, text height, etc., are defined for this base scale.
Base scale is the scale at which the parameter value is identified or fixed.
Scale Relate - Style element entities with this parameter can be associated with working scale (see below).
True - the parameter is associated with working scale.
False - the parameter is not influenced by working scale.
Exaggeration value influence only the profile area (height of profile area and the scale for elevation axis).
Exaggeration is not having any direct influence on style elements.
By default, labels representing elevations will follow the exaggerated elevation axis.
The inner frame is established for 1:1 horizontal scale and exaggeration. The outer frame is established considering the label margins and working scale. The style elements are established considering working scale.
Working scale is the actual horizontal scale when the profile is presented.
This scale is meant for detailing and is not the drawing scale.
In Novapoint, drawing scale is always 1:1.
The function reads the working horizontal scale, compares with base scale of the style, and calculates the uniform scale factor for style elements.
All style elements do not need to be scaled, Novapoint takes care of this.
The horizontal scale is specified through the function Drawing Scale.
