  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 top of the trench.

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

  5. Select Define start invert elevation and bottom slope as the placement method.

  6. Type a value for Start Invert Elevation. The value of the invert elevations should be less than the elevation of the 3D Sketch path.

  7. Select the parent system of the trench run.

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

  9. Type a value for Bottom Slope.

  10. 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 top cardinal point for cross-section

    3 - Defined start invert elevation

    4 - Defined slope

    5 - Defined footing thickness from trench cross-section

    6, 7, 8, 9 - Trench depths computed by (global Z-coordinate of drawn path) - (invert elevation)
