I try to draw a sloped line with AccuDraw. I tried this tutorial but it didn't work as expected: https://envisioncad.com/accudraw-with-popup-calculator
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)
Thank you Mary, About negative slope, when I type (-0.05) it worked!
I am using an application called Terra Model for terrain modeling. There is a command for creating sloped lines and a few other handy tools as well.
Thanks for your suggestion.
It may not be the most modern dtm application but tools like 'place sloped line' or 'copy linear element' which offsets 3D-line strings are handy when creating dtm.
I think I cannot buy this software. Although Terramodel is an old software, it has many useful tools. But OpenRoads is enough for me.
