Drawing Line in Microstation with Relative Coordinates using Distance and Percent Slope

Drawing Line in Microstation with Relative Coordinates using Distance and Percent Slope

Drawing Line in Microstation with Relative Coordinates using Distance and Percent Slope

(OP)
Is this possible?

I know I can Place SmartLine, click a point and use Key-In of AD=100,8 and that will draw me a line with an 8% slope.

But can I do this and have it bound to specific horizontal distance ... say draw a line where X=30 and the percent slope is 8%

using AD=30,8% only gives me a line with X=30 and Y=8.

Thanks in Advance,

Jeremy

RE: Drawing Line in Microstation with Relative Coordinates using Distance and Percent Slope

Use AccuDraw.

Draw your line. Nudge the cursor to the right and type 30. Nudge your cursor Up and type 30 * .08 the math will give you 2.4 in rise.

Here is a tip on accudraw and math functions.
