Drawing Parts in Profile View


If you’ve already created an alignment and profile view—for example, if you’re going to show your pipes on the same profile view as your road design—select a network part, right-click, and choose Draw Parts In Profile from the Network Tools panel. When you’re using this command, it’s important to note that only selected parts are drawn in your chosen profile view.

If you neglect to choose specific parts that are meaningful to show in your profile view, you’ll end up with a result like the one shown in Figure 13-52.
