How to Draw a Line with Slope

I try to draw a sloped line with AccuDraw. I tried this tutorial but it didn't work as expected:

For example I input 1000, 1000, 1300 coordinates for the first point, second point will be 40 meters away with %5 slope. In distance, direction mode, I input dist: 40 m, direction: 40 degree, Z: pressed * and input 0.5. Elevation didn't change. I expect that it calculates 40- (40*0.5) How can it be calculated from the first elevation?

Edit: corrected (Z * slope) to (distance * slope)

  • What version of Microstation are you using & what are your AccuDraw settings? There are options for AccuDraw to follow the points as they are being placed, for the compass to rotate or remain unrotated. These setting will affect the end result. I was able to place a line following your guidance and had no issues.

  • It is Power InRoads v8i and ORD CONNECT 2021 R1  Here are the settings. I changed sticky Z lock, but there isn't difference. At the end, I calculated slopes manually and I drew more than 50 breaklines to create terrain model. It was very difficult to do it manually. I will try to change compass and rotation settings. Thanks
