Grading Arrows

Recommended Posts

Anyone want to share how they show direction of grade on site plan?

I always use individual arrows with percentage of grade and just place them around the house as needed. Wondering what other ways I can display grade slope percentage. 

Most of my projects are 2 to 5 percent and I don't need to set terrain so I leave it flat. So the elevation data wont work.

 

Your thought and suggestions would be appreciated

Here is one example of what I was thinking but I don't know how I would make a line style like this to be automatic to where you can just select and drag.

The most used by me would be a 2% and 5%

Any ideas or thoughts?

Can you elaborate on how to do that? An example maybe.

You can create a cad block with a text object ("2%") and an arrow.

Save it in the library

Create a distributed path.

Choose the cad block.

Adjust the spacing as needed.
