  1. In the Grids task, create grids as needed for drawing the trench path.

  2. In the Civil task, click Place Trench .

  3. Click Path , and define the path of the bottom of the trench.

  4. Select a cardinal point at the bottom of the trench: Bottom Left , Bottom Center , or Bottom Right .

  5. Select Define start depth and top slope as the placement method.

  6. Select the parent system of the trench run.

  7. Select a trench Type and its respective cross-section.

    The start depth is defined by the Catalog during placement. You can modify this after placement.

  8. Type a value for Top Slope.

  9. Click Finish.

    The trench is created, as shown in the following example trench elevation:

    1 - Drawn trench path with varying global Z-coordinates along the path

    2 - Defined bottom cardinal point for cross-section

    3 - Defined start depth from trench cross-section

    4 - Defined top slope

    5 - Defined footing thickness from trench cross-section

    6, 7, 8 - Trench depths computed by (rim elevation from top slope) - (invert elevation from global Z-coordinate of drawn path)
