Adding a Slope
You can create simple or complex slopes, all using the same object. A simple slope is basically a ramp. The slope is added by defining the start point and direction. Next, the rise and run can be adjusted to determine the angle/grade. You can reposition or rotate the slope as needed to match your client's property. To add a simple slope: 1. Click Add Slope. 2. Click to set the start point. 3. As you move the cursor, an arrow will show you the direction of the slope. Click to set the direction. Below is an example of a simple slope:
