During the plausibility check, I receive the error message "One or more polyline segments overlap." How can I fix it?


The polyline shown in Figure 1 was created in the order of Nodes 1 → 2 → 3 → 4 → 5. This is also shown in column B "Node No." Table "1.2 Lines". Thus, the line segments between nodes 3, 4 and nodes 4, 5 overlap so that the error message shown in Figure 2 is displayed.

The order of the nodes must be changed so that no line segments overlap. In this example, we want to specify the order of Nodes 1 → 2 → 3 → 5 → 4, as shown in Figure 3.

You can also use the "Disassemble Polyline" function to decompose the polyline (Figure 4). Then, two lines are created between nodes 5 and 4. Then, delete a line. You can also use the "Regenerate Model" function in the "Tools" menu.

Both approaches are shown in the video.
