    Default Bench drains on grading objects....

    I know that you can specify the addition of bench drains on a roadway profile and that's great. The only problem is that they don't drain anywhere. What would be great is the ability to add bench drains to the grading object and also have it slope to the middle of the graded slope or to one end or the other. Then you'd just have to draw in your down drains and you'd be done with the slope.

    This may seem like cheating to some but the grading wizard already is cheating so might as well have it finish it up for you too.

    Mike,

    Play with the grading Targets and Slope Tags, and you can get your drains in.

    Wow, I actually just now saw your reply......I thought your post was a little vague but in about 5 minutes I had a bench drain in a grading object and I gotta say thank you so much for your help. This is a great feature to the grading objects that I wasn't aware of before.
