LAND4 for ARCHICAD
Create Ridge Slope
Interpolated Ridge Slope
The LAND4 Create Ridge Slope tool enables you to interpolate a Ridge Slope based on:
- a LANDSurface
- a Ridge Line not part of the LANDSurface, and
- a Fall Percentage.
Dynamic object and relations
The generated Ridge Slope will be a dynamic object and a child of the LANDSurface and Ridge Line. If one of the parents are moved, elevated, or otherwise updated, the Ridge Slope will be updated accordingly.

Generate Ridge Slope
To generate a Ridge Slope:
- Select Ridge Line and LANDSurface.
- Go to:
- LAND4/Group Palettes/Show Ridge Line Palette, or
- LAND4 Palette/Ridge Lines.
- Press Create Ridge Slope button.
- Enter Fall Percentage in pop-up Fall Palette.
- Click on the side of the Ridge Line where you want to place your Ridge Slope.

LANDSurface and Ridge Line, Section
A Ridge Slope is a projected line. It indicates where a Ridge Line’s slope would meet a LandSurface based on a set Fall Percentage.

Ridge Slopes on both sides of Ridge Line
You can generate Ridge Slopes on both sides of a Ridge Line. Differing Fall Percentages can be used for each of the two sides.
