In Pythagoras  you have the possibility to design one or more polylines based on a designed path.

By selecting a path (designed and containing height information) and one or more polylines you will have access to the "Design - Polyline relative to Path" option in the "Calculation" menu. The function will also be accessible via right-clicking after selecting the path and polyline(s).

The path will be the base for designing the polyline(s) based on slope or height parameters. 

After activation you will have two choices:

  • Design based on gradient or slope
  • Design based on a fixed height difference
    1. Based on a height difference between a point and a polyline (XY position of the point needs to be on the polyline).
    2. Based on a chosen height difference.
