This is a summary of the available cross-section documentation.

Creating the cross-sections

Begin the process by Creating MX Cross-Sections. This describes the process to create cross-sections in MX. including the procedures for skewed drives and special station sections.

After creating the sections in MX, some options are available for adding extra details:

Once all this information is in MX, the sections should be drawn so they can be transferred to MicroStation. This process is described in Transferring MX cross-sections to MicroStation . That process uses the XS-MS macro to draw the sections. Details of the macro and a sample input files are shown in Sample XS-MS Macro Input File.

After transferring the data from MX, Working With MicroStation Cross-Sections will explain some additional editing that needs to be done such as adding borders and modifying drainage features. 

If there is a need to replace the cross-sections because of a change to the profile or template, follow the procedure in Updating MicroStation Cross-Sections.

Documentation is also available for Earthwork and Select Material Calculations
