New Shotover Canyon Swing Flying Fox Attraction

Last week as a team building exercise the guys from the office and myself went to check out the new flying fox that the strucutural guys have been working on.

Click the image below for a video of me hanging on for dear life and being launched across the Shotover Canyon 220m metres in the air with 15 metres of free fall and getting up to 70 km/hr.

Road Corridor with Central Median Islands

I have not posted anything much lately as “Windows Live Writer” as stopped working with the new security requirement of Google Blogger. So this is my first attempt at posting using “Open Live Writer”

I have been modelling a 2.5km road corridor lately with superelevation and a central island with turn bays. In order to model the turn bays correctly with the right crossfall and also the median islands I came across this video on youtube which was very helpful.

In my situation I also had a number of intersections that I modelled first in the corridor and then had to swap the primary through assemblies to assemblies that included the median island and set the appropriate targets for the island offset assemblies.

Corridor Feature Lines–Branching

Today I had a problem with a corridor and a transition of featurelines from an assembly with a median island to one without the island. The featurelines from the centre island kerb jump out to join the kerb at the outside of the assembly with no median island as shown below. xzwdudxq

To stop this under the featureline tab of the corridor properties you have to turn the branching to outwards. Thanks to my co-worker Stan for pointing this setting out.
