Grade Slope Along SurfaceWin64, English
General Usage Instructions
The app is quite easy to use beginning by prompting for a tin surface.
Next, the user may enter the desired grade/slope (default value is 2.00%) or pick the start point for the 3D Polyline.
After selecting the start point, the app will show two arrows at the grade/slope value, if applicable.
The user can again adjust the grade/slope as desired and the arrows will reflect the entered value.
Entering a grade/slope of a negative value will indicate a downslope, positive indicates an upslope.
Picking a point on one side or the other will plot the 3D Polyline in that direction until the desired grade/slope can no longer be achieved.
