Some people like things aligned on sheets. One of these items are station offset labels. They’d prefer the station offset labels be aligned near the top of a sheet away from the actual object they are labeling.
We can get this look by utilizing expressions. The first expression is going to be called YValue. This value will establish the Northing value the station offset labels should be aligned with. For this post I’m using 2600.
The next expression will calculate the distance from the point being labeled to the point we want the label to show. The Drawing Conversion Scale Conversion changes the value from feet to inches.
Now put the Difference expression as a Y offset. This will move the component of the label to the correct location.
Here’s the look of the label I’ve created.
Not quite the look of the picture in the beginning of this post, but it conveys the concept of how to accomplish the label. If you want to download the drawing you may find it here. If you have more than two rows you’ll have to create a Y expression for each row of Station Offset Labels.
