I have an alignment going up the center of a draw. I'd like to extract cross sections of this alignment and existing ground. What is a good way to do this?
I don't do cross sections very often, so when I need one, I draw a second alignment perpendicular to the first and profile that alignment to give me a bare bones cross section. I'd like to do these cross sections on a given interval, and at every change in direction. How should I go about it?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I chose these from the menu bar, So be sure to have it turned on.
Create a profile 1st.

Hopefully you have a Style created.
In the create sample lines command there are options to create by station; where you click the location or type the station, or to create by range; where you set the start point, end point and the interval.
