510 Visible path junction
When a junction or intersection of paths or tracks is visible, the dashes of the symbols are joined at the junction.
As ISOM 2000 but started: When a path junction...
No symbol is provided in the default.ocd symbol set. Use careful editing and the tips below to produce a smart junction:-
Run the main, straighter path, often the side path is not clear even though running on the side path brings you onto the main path with no difficulty
Path junctions can often be improved with the careful use of the cutting and reverse tools or by adding a node close to the junction.
In OCAD version 7- Use the new dash point node at the junction.
Paths should not be left like this:- This may be taken as an indistinct junction.
Optimisation should not be taken to extremes:- there should always be a gap close to the junction.
