Trim Ridge Line

Trim Ridge Line tool

The LAND4 Trim Ridge Line tool allows you to trim an existing Ridge Line following the same rules as trimming a polyline in Archicad.

When trimming a Ridge Line, the segment of the line between two intersecting lines or between an intersecting line and the nearest node on the polyline will be deleted. Then, new Spot Levels will be interpolated and added to the end of that segment.
