What is the order in which template data is processed at each template drop?


This is generally the order in which OpenRoads solves the location of points and components at each template drop...

  1. Template is dropped, and points are placed according to the point constraints stored in the template.
  2. Parametric constraints are applied as defined in the template, and in the corridor.
  3. Horizontal Feature constraints are applied to move points if the feature is found in the specified range.
  4. Point controls are applied to the assigned points, overriding the corresponding constraint, and all points that are constrained back to the point controlled point will be recalculated.
  5. Component display rules are solved based on the current position of all points.
  6. End conditions are solved by extending designated segments along the specified slope to seek their targets.
