Template
Laying type
Usage
Precision
In order to be able to display the occupancy of the segment with cables and ducts in the graphic, a cross section must be assigned to the segment. You can find out more about the cross-section template here. Users can make their choices in the Laying type, Usage and Precision list boxes. Double-clicking in the respective list box opens the corresponding forms. New records can be created. (5)
Contents Under Contents, users can find information on the occupancy of the segment as well as segment-specific workflows. In the middle pane, the occupancy of the segment with ducts, microducts and cables is displayed in the form of a tree view. In this case, the various elements can be quickly identified from the preceding symbol. A coloration of the duct symbol in yellow indicates that the corresponding duct is occupied by microducts or cables. The ducts and cables are displayed with their names. If no name has been assigned by the user, the type and the FID of the object appear as an alternative. You can find out more about occupancy here. (6)
Segment data The segment data managed in the line form for the segment is displayed. (7)
Information on the segment can be stored. (8)
Details The user length as well as the CAD length of the segment from the line form is displayed. The user length can be adjusted if necessary here. The user can specify the depth of the segment. It is possible to attach and open the drilling logs. (9)
Assignments Which ducts, cable sections and services are assigned to the segment is listed under Assignments. The total lengths of the ducts and cable sections are displayed. The corresponding forms can be opened. (10)
This displays whether documents have been attached to the form. (11)
All assigned cables, ducts and the cross section for the selected segmentmceclip1.png or mceclip2.png for all segments in the filter can be opened in the form. (12)


Assigning and editing a cross-section template

Clicking on the button opens the selection of the already-defined cross-section templates. Once the user has made a selection, the current segment cross section is displayed.

mceclip3.png

Various workflows can be started via the “Edit” menu.

mceclip4.png

If a segment cross section is assigned to the segment, it can be mirrored, moved, displayed or hidden. In addition, a further cross section can be assigned to the segment. If a cross section has been hidden, the “Show cross section” command is available. If the cross section is displayed, the “Hide cross section” command is available.

It is possible to enter a segment -occupancy text on the segment and to update it. In Industry model options > NET options > Survey plan > segment-occupancy text tab, you can specify which information should be entered on the segment.

If a geometry was created with the “Create duct geometry using a segment/duct” workflow for ducts that are assigned to a segment/duct (without geometry), this can be removed here. This also applies to several segments in the filter.

Note
When mirroring, the cross section is mirrored on the base. If the cross section is to be displayed on the other side of the segment, the “Move cross section” command has to be applied.
When moving, mceclip0.png appears in the command bar. Set the new position for this point

mceclip9.png
in the graphic.

Then, mceclip1.pngappears in the command bar. Set the new position for this point

mceclip10.png
in the graphic. With ESC, the perpendicular from the first point to the segment is created as the second point.

Note
You can find more information about creating segment-cross-section templates and models under Creating a segment-cross-section template and Creating models.

The duct endings overview and the forms for the labels created can be opened via the “Overviews/reports” menu.
