Some of you may have noticed that once you draw coverages within InfraWorks, their corner get cut and you will never get a chance of creating recatangular parking lots, football fields or properties.
Here is a way to get ride of the so called "smoothing" by editing the acording JSON file before you actually start drawing.
The smoothing is a property of the DrawTool, which can be customized per model. You can find the DrawTool customization file for a IW project here:
The Coverage.json configures the properties of the tool to draw Coverages.
- Open Coverage.json in the model you are going to work with
- Find some property called “SmoothParam”. Try setting it to 0.0.
- Save Coverage.json
- Open City in InfraWorks
- Draw your Coverage area
By setting it to 0.0 it will not cut, smoothen or rounding up corners anymore.
This is definitally a workaround and has potentail to get into the property panel of the coverages soon.
Have a good weekend.
