5.4.1.1 In PW, create PF01 in your SHEET_DGN folder as a Sheet File, but using the 2D Design seed file, not the Sheet seed file. Set to open with ORD.

Ex. In folder 423 > PF01_RDSF_T2020XXYYY_DOT

5.4.1.2 Open the file in ORD and reference in your RC.

5.4.1.3 Open a Profile Model for the desired Alignment.


Note, if you receive the following error: “You cannot open a profile view from another file”.

The most common cause of this is that you have not created a profile for that alignment in the main file.

5.4.1.3.1. Open the file that houses the Alignment (typically the AL Strip Reference file).

5.4.1.3.2. Select the Alignment in question, right click and hold, and select Open Profile Model.

Note, this triggers ORD to create the Profile Model behind the scenes.

5.4.1.3.3. Save, close and check the file back into PW.

5.4.1.3.4. You should now be able to open profile view in the reference.



5.4.1.4 Open Place Named Boundary Dialog.

5.4.1.5 Set mode to Civil Profile.

5.4.1.6 Set Drawing Seed.

Profile Only 30 Scale creates one Profile Boundary per sheet.

Profile-Profile 30 Scale creates two profiles Boundaries per sheet.

5.4.1.7 Fill out Names and Descriptions as necessary.

5.4.1.8 Enter Start Location and Stop Location.

Note, this will be the Start and Stop of the range for which you want to create sheets.


5.4.1.9 Make sure Create Drawing and Show Dialog is checked.

5.4.1.10 The profile model view will show where the Named Boundaries will be placed. Data to accept.

5.4.1.11 In the Create Drawing Dialog, change options from defaults as needed.Make sure to not check the checkbox to create a new DGN for the Drawing model.

5.4.1.12 Under the Sheet Model section, DO NOT check the box next to Filename.

5.4.1.13 The first time you do this, click the Create New Sheet File button, and create PF01 as a Sheet File and place in your SHEET_DGN folder.

5.4.1.14 The second time you do this, click the Browse Sheet File button, and select the file you created above.

If you chose the Profile-Profile seed option and have only used one of the profile Boundaries, you can utilize the second one by selecting the appropriate Sheet via the Sheets dropdown, and then selecting the appropriate Boundary via the Drawing Boundary dropdown.
