There are some really cool tools to label surface labels. Nearly every government entity that I have to submit too asks for slope calculations for driveways, sidewalks etc. I hate having to find my excel spreadsheet and pulling the design data off the plans with my scale (where did I put that?) or laying awake at night questioning if I updated or sent my calculation sheets to the review agency…
Jump with me to see a couple of tips…
First off – there is the Surface Slope Label – Two Points. The image below show a driveway slope calculations as a part of that surface style. Works fine – until you get lots of adjacent driveways.
Trying to drag the label actually moves everything. Listing the slope arrow would be nice but this is what we get:
AECC_SURFACE_SLOPE_LABEL Layer: “C-TOPO-TEXT”
Space: Model space
Handle = abcf
Oops, nothing there.
Well, feature lines do allow us to do the same thing. I can now drag that label and give us a little more room to show those calculation.
Maybe now I can actually create a dynamic table to show start, end etc… just some food to digest.
