Recommended Posts

I have a survey plat that I am using to create my terrain perimeter. The problem I am having is with the curved parts of my property. I have a cul-de-sac and a long slightlu curved length of land that borders the road. The survey gives me the following details for these lines: Cul-de-sac 180.8 ft. Other line: Delta 91 degrees 30' T=315 ft. length of line 694 ft. How do I take these details and create the arc. Ie: Arc, Start point, end point and chord?

It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using. You can add this info to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left. Doing so makes it always available, and this info is often key to providing a good suggestion

If your plat map is scaled you can scan the document and import the image of your plat map into Suite or whatever. Then scale it to "real world" scale within Suite using provided tools then orient the scan to your structure (house footprint) and then trace over its lines with Suite's terrain perimeter and elevation objects to produce a reasonable facsimile of your property. You then use the "Terrain Specification Dialog - Building Pad" input box to align the terrain plane to your structure.
