Adding Slopes

Many topographical maps show slope, rather than complex topography shapes. Once you’ve defined the slope, you can move selected topography lines to create plateaus or otherwise customize your topography design.

You can set the start elevation for the slope and the descent angle before you draw or after the component has been added to your design by selecting it and clicking the Properties tab in the right sidebar.
