Using Terrain Models for More Accurate Cover in Constraint Based Design

In storm and sewer systems with hilly terrain, depth of cover may vary significantly over the length of a pipe.

This helps ensure that your cover constraints are met not just at the pipe ends, but along the entire pipe length. Watch the below short demonstration to see how.
