Manage the elevation of natural ground

From the menu "Land" in the "Layout" step, using the "Elevation point" and "Elevation Line" tools, you can represent the different terrain elevations of the project.

⚠️ If you insert only one elevation value, the land will remain flat. The application takes as a reference the lowest value entered.

Elevation points

1.  From the "Layout" step, go to the "Land" menu, then select the "Elevation point" tool.

2.  Give a default elevation to the point. This value is set to 0" by default (flat terrain).

3.  To add elevation point, place the elevation point and click on the work area to validate.

💡 If you have several elevation points of the same value to place, activate the "repeat action" option.

4 . To modify a point, click on the point and, in the right-hand column, under the "information" section, modify the value (by using the "up/down" keyboard arrows or by directly entering a value, validate it by pressing the key "Enter").

5 .  Additionally in the right-hand column, delete the point if necessary by clicking on the red symbol representing a bin (or by selecting the point in the work area and clicking on the key "Delete").

❗Your elevation line will automatically turn into a curve.
