Creating an Attachment Point

An attachment point allows you to attach equipment to non-OLE assets, such as walls and soffits. Here's how you create one.


Step 1: Place a marker

Place a circle in the position you would like to create the attachment point.

Step 2: Navigate to the 'Structures' section of the Lineardraft toolbar

Step 3: Click the 'Place' button

This will prompt you to click a marker.

Step 4: Click the marker, then right-click anywhere on the screen

This will prompt you to click on your rails.

Step 5: Click the left rail

This should be the leftmost rail of the tracks you wish the attachment point to be associated with when looking in the direction of increasing chainage.

Step 6: Click the right rail

This should be the rightmost rail of the tracks you wish the attachment point to be associated with when looking in the direction of increasing chainage.
Once clicked, the 'Create Structure' window will open.

Step 7: Select 'Attachment Point' from the 'Type' drop-down menu

This will change the options and layout of the 'Create Structure' window.

Step 8: Enter 'Structure Details'

Give your structure a name and enter the 'Chainage'. Find out more about structure naming rules here.

Step 9: Select your attachment point type from the drop-down menu

This selection defines your 2D structure symbol. Selecting 'None' will result in a standard structure line.
In this example we have selected a 'Wall'.

Step 10: Position your attachment point

Adjust the following settings to your requirements:

Relative Height: Height of the attachment point in metres, relative to the top of foundation
Height: Z-axis height of the attachment point in metres, relative HRL, plus or minus the relative height
RECOS: Distance from the attachment point to the running edge of the closest rail in metres (more information here)
Bearing: Rotation of the attachment point in degrees measured from north (0┬░)

Step 11: Click 'Confirm'

This will close the 'Create Structure' window and place your attachment point.
