PLINE on surface at grade
« on: May 03, 2017, 03:28:31 pm »
Does anyone know if Civil 3D can draw a polyline on a surface at a specific grade automatically?  Apparently there is a way in InRoads, but I am not familiar with it.

Is that not something Feature Lines can do in Civil3d?

No, but Terry Dotson added a tool for this to his C3D:Surfaces set of tools, called Grade Path. It creates a Featureline, not a polyline.
