Grading to a Feture line

Hello, I have a question about grading in c3d 2011.


I have a tin surface created from a parcel of land,  I then graded a holding pond down and infilled it.  I have run a feature line around the parcel boundaries and assigned elevations to that feature line from the existing surface elvations.  I would like to grade from my top of pond to the parcel boundary, some sections are cut, some are fill.  I dont really care what the slope is, I just want to grade to match EG and stay within my parcel.  Can this be done?  Thanks!

You'll need to let the surface form the triangles between the pond and the perimeter. All you need to so is add the perimeter featureline as a breakline to the pond surface and the triangles will form automatically.

So Ive added that perimeter feature line as a breakline to my pond surface and the profile views look great. Thank you!!
