Command Description

Computes points along a selected 3D line using a table of variable slope distances as the divisor. A good tool for rapidly creating building grid layouts.

Command Interface Description

The Divide by Slope Distance command dialog looks as follows

Point Info:

The command will generate points at the slope distance or horizontal distance intervals that you specify in tabular form against a selected source line e.g. a building grid line. If the line is horizontal then slope distance = horizontal distance.

Start Point ID:
Enter the point number that you wish to use for the first point that is generated, subsequent points will be numbered in sequence thereafter. You can use Point ID

Select the layer on which you wish to place the created points

Reference Line:
Select the baseline along which you wish to compute the slope distances

On pressing Configure, a spreadsheet style editor will open. Enter the distances

When you tap apply, the selected line will be divided by the slope distance tale values and the command will ready itself for another selection set and repeat process execution. If you do not want to make a second selection and repeat the process tap Close to finish the process.

Closes the command without further execution.
