Adjusting trench and duct assignments

Using the “Adjust trench and duct assignments” workflow, cables and ducts can be assigned to or deassigned from several trenches via a tracing, a map selection or via existing ducts/cables.

Procedure

Start the workflow in Workflow Explorer > Survey-plan workflows > Adjust trench and duct assignment by double-clicking it, from the context menu or by clicking the mceclip3.png button in the lower right area of the workflow explorer:

mceclip34.png

or in the NET planning tab:

mceclip1.png

or in the context menus for the duct/cable in the trench/duct form.
You will be prompted to choose a duct or trench:

If a trench has been selected, the duct to be assigned must then be selected:

The following dialog opens:

On the left side, assignments can be canceled. On the right side, assignments can be added.

The following options are available for canceling the assignment:
In the map selection, trenches and ducts can be selected in the illustration.

Trenches/ducts are selected in the illustration.

Trenches/ducts are selected in the illustration and then the reference duct is selected.

and via assigned trenches and ducts

Trenches to which the duct/cable is assigned.

Ducts to which the duct/cable is assigned.

The following options are available for adding the assignment:
In the map selection, trenches and ducts can be selected in the illustration.

Trenches/ducts are selected in the illustration.

Trenches/ducts are selected in the illustration and then the reference duct is selected.

Determine trenches and ducts with tracing

Trenches and ducts may be determined as start and end. The distance between them is determined via a tracing.

The assignment can also take place via an existing duct/cable and its assignments.

mceclip14.png

Select a trench with the desired reference object > object is also assigned.

mceclip15.png

Select a duct with the desired reference object > object is also assigned.

The mceclip16.png and mceclip17.png buttons highlights the selected objects in the illustration and remove them from the selection, respectively.
The mceclip18.png and mceclip19.png buttons can be used to highlight the assignments in the illustration and remove the highlight again, respectively.
The mceclip20.png button updates the view.
The mceclip21.png button applies the changed assignments and adjusts the geometry of the objects. The mceclip22.png button applies the changed assignments only in the database for objects without their own geometry.
The mceclip23.png button ends the workflow.


First, the option for the assignment has to be selected. Then, the corresponding elements can be selected with the “Run” button.

Tracing

First the start element and then the target element must be selected in the illustration.

The path found is displayed via a highlight.

mceclip25.png

The trenches found are displayed in the dialog.

The assignment is applied with “Apply”.

Existing duct/cable

If you now want to apply the assignment for another duct for the same trenches, select the assigned ducts (indirect)/assigned trenches (indirect) option and select the object in the illustration. A tree view appears:

mceclip27.png mceclip28.png

in which the desired object can be selected.
The trenches are listed and the assignment is applied with Apply.

Map selection

If the map-selection option has been specified, in addition to the start element, all trench sections in the illustration to which the duct/cable is to be assigned must be selected.

The trenches found are displayed in the dialog.
The assignment is applied with “Apply”.

Note
If the trenches do not form a clear geometry (end points do not lie correctly on top of each other), this message appears: mceclip30.png.
With the mceclip31.png button, you can jump to the appropriate point of the incorrect geometry. Once you have corrected the geometry, you can continue the workflow with the Update button mceclip32.png.
