Novapoint 2020

Novapoint Base

Novapoint Base as it is known in Novapoint 19 - Novapoint 21 is now rebranded to Quadri for Windows. For release notes related to Quadri for Windows go here.




Novapoint Road

General

NEW: Persistant ID on all the features resulting in the features being updated, not deleted and recreating new features. Better consistency to feature ID’s.

ENHANCEMENT: Typical Cross-section dialog now handles all surfaces.

FIXED: Issues in some cases when creating a road task based on IND and GEN files.

Road model Settings

NEW: Settings > Chainage: Checkbox to turn OFF cross-section calculations at changepoints on alignments used as surface edges. Performance will improve when using alignment as surface edge that has many points (f.ex. Line tasks generated from survey data).

ENHANCEMENT: Settings > Elements: Checkbox to turn OFF stakeout stringlines for pavement layers. This is now by Default set OFF on new roadmodels. This will improve amount of data produced and shared to server.

ENHANCEMENT: Settings > Elements: When turning ON “Simplify inner slope on terrain” then the solids are turned OFF. This is similar to how it worked before when function was first released. Also affects existing roadmodels. A message will show in Process Info saying that volumes are turned OFF.

Road surface

NEW: Possibility to remove solids for FillLayer and Cut features in areas of “Bridge” and “Tunnel”. Gives better visualization and correct quantities.

To use the solution go to the “Object” column in boundary table and choose Bridge or Tunnel. Set it on the opposite side of the road as well.

ENHANCEMENT: Alignment as surface edge dialog is wider to easier read alignment names. Hover-over alignment name to see the full pathname.

FIXED: Issues with alignments used as boundary that changes back to the centerline in the dialog.

Pavement and Deep blasting

ENHANCEMENT: Rehab road edge alignment names had to be unique in the first 24 characters.

ENHANCEMENT: Deep blasting now interpolate between depths.

FIXED: Pavement breakpoints in the section could jump back and forth. Better result for 3rd party solutions.

FIXED: Deep blasting didn’t always show for some models.

Property Boundaries

NEW: Property boundaries are now available as 3D results and are drawn in “Default”, “Sketch”, Basic3D, “Discipline > Road > Draw Road Model”

Roadtasks need to be updated with the newest conversion rule for full effect. Make a new road task and copy/paste the conversion rule between the tasks through the right-click menu.

NEW: Property boundaries are now visible in the Cross-section Viewer.

CS Calculation

ENHANCEMENT: Road models exceeding 30000 cross-sections are stopped at 30000 and gives message about it.

ENHANCEMENT: Calculation is now in two (2) steps, instead of 3. Step 1 includes cross-section calculations and updating dynamic alignments.

FIXED: Subsurface layers could take a short cut in some situations.

FIXED: Landscaping surface could shoot out when using LAST mode.

CS-viewer

ENHANCEMENT: Better experience when right-click to start dialog if dialogs are already open.

ENHANCEMENT: Landscaping surfaces show on top of road surfaces to see it more easily.

Error messages

ENHANCEMENT: Grouping of error/warning messages when building model to avoid long lists of messages. Gives less mess and makes it easier to read errors/warnings.

FIXED: When missing rehabilitation road edge alignments as illustration objects.

FIXED: Error/warnings txt-report file didn’t open for models with special characters.

3D results

ENHANCEMENT: Generally faster 3D results.

ENHANCEMENT: Pavement triangulation now match the stringlines that are produced.

ENHANCEMENT: Solids are improved with regards to watertightness to easier produce solids in CAD with CAD-functions.

FIXED: Results for roads in loop on itself are improved.

FIXED: Inner slope missing in some sections making strange results in 3rd party software.

FIXED: Multiple issues related to production of 3D results missing or faulty, or experienced crashes.

FIXED: Missing vegetation removal in some cases.

FIXED: Stringline representing the FormationBoundary is back.

Junction Wizard

ENHANCEMENT: Better results. Better choice of alignments and setting the new created surface on primary road with inherit slope for better results.

ENHANCEMENT: Changing radius of R2 and R5 will change rest of the radiuses based on the ratio that is set. Changing R1, R3, R4, R6 will still work and affect the ratio as before.

ENHANCEMENT: Removing Junction through the wizard does not allow user to continue to make a new junction. User must now reenter the Junction Wizard to make a new junction.

FIXED: Better handling of intersections when recalculating intersection many times. Could cleanup alignments used in other parts of the road descriptions..

FIXED: Possibility of crashing when calculating against roundabout road model.

FIXED: Fixed multiple minor/bigger issues with the results.

ENHANCEMENT: Old build dialog does not show when building. Builds secondary and primary road automatically when pressing Finish on the dialog.

Alignment Design

FIXED: Problems with clothoid with approx. fixation in relation with import line, offset etc.

FIXED: Coordinate transformation issues.

Quantity report

NEW: Section-based Novapoint Quantity report type more similar to results found in NP20. Report makes a section, then multiplies with calculation interval. Will give slightly different results than Table View and the regular report based on the solids.

FIXED: The summary sheet was missing the values for “Rock < 1m”.

REMOVED: Quantity/Geometry reports are no longer available from the old road tool.

Draw to CAD

FIXED: Draw road model: Contour lines are back.

Option to draw contour lines draws all contour lines or nothing. Currently we have no selections for road surface groups available.

FIXED: Draw road model: Inherit layername not working properly

FIXED: Draw cross sections: Missing the QualityFill hatch for areas below terrain surface when removing subgrade layers.

Norwegian Version

Sight Analysis

NEW: Meeting and Passing sight according to calculation methods in Svv handbook V120 (2018).

FIXED: Sight distance correction for incline/decline are now linear from 0 to maximum correction according to Svv handbook V120 (2018).

Swedish Version

Quantity report

FIXED: Rock cut area was missing. “Bergets överyta” and “Bergschaktdjup > 1.0m”.




Novapoint Railway

In addition to the relevant changes to Novapoint Road, these are release notes specific for Novapoint Railway.

Alignment Design

FIXED: Wrong calculation of “dl/dt”

FIXED: Import of LandXML didn’t add CANT/SPEED correctly.

KM

FIXED: Recalculation issues when entering KM stationing.

Report

FIXED: Geometry report gave wrong elevation on the rail




Novapoint Water and Sewer

International Version

Fixed

FIXED: Removed number of characters limitation in Trench name in design

Nowegian Version

Enhancements

ENHANCEMENT: Added many new objects in the configuration

ENHANCEMENT: New WS DWT Template

Novapoint Tunnel

FIXED

FIXED: 3D-drawing: The performance is improved. Sometimes it used to hang, but all known issues causing the 3D-drawing to hang is fixed.

FIXED: The triangulation functionality failed for some projects. This is corrected.

FIXED: The low performance when making geologi- and rock support drawing is fixed, including some situations when the drawing functionality stopped.

FIXED: The scanner data was not shown correctly at the start/end of the tunnel in the Tunnel Design dialog if the road/reference line ended at about the same chainage value as the perimeter. This is fixed now.




Novapoint Road Sign

ENHANCEMENT

To the Novapoint 2020 release, a number of improvements have been made to the functionality we find in the 3DSIGN command. In the points below, we have tried to summarize some of the improvements that have been made.

Two "sign positions" can share foundation and mast

The functionality has been expanded so that there is now support for several sign positions to share the same foundation and mast. This makes it easier to define sign positions with signs on both sides of a mast.

Control the vertical distance between signs

It is now possible to control the vertical distance between the signs in a sign layout.

Signs can be rotated on the mast

It is now possible to rotate individual signs at different angles in a sign layout. This enables signage for multiple roads on the same sign layout.
