I am using Civil 3D 2012. I am drawing a water line in a profile with a vertical scale of 1" = 10'. I am trying to draw lines at 45 deg angles to account for standard fittings. Now, I tried to block a 45 deg angle and exaggerate the y scale, but for some reason this does not work well mathematically. Is there a way to draw lies at a certain slope, or at a certain angle from another line, while taking into consideration the scale exaggeration? Anyone know of a lisp routine, or maybe a civil command to accomplish this?
Why not use a Finish Grade profile using grade percentage. You should be able to use percent grade in lieu of an angle without too much trouble.
