Is it possible to get a straight/vertical side when creating embankments?
I tried to add this using "Ask a question" but kept getting an error page, so apologies if this is a discussion.
Essentially, I'm trying to rebuild an old industrial landscape, and am putting back in place, bridge embankments that where removed when the bridges in question where demolished.
I'm managing to do this ok using the flatten site plan tools, however, there is one small challenge I'm facing.
Take the following image:
The north most embankment I created using a center line which I then aligned to the required slope and buffered it. The south most embankment, I drew by hand and set the per vertex elevations from manual calculations as required.
The inner gap however (IE: the space under the bridge) the embankment side was vertical.
In essence, the sides of the embankment shown with green lines, should be a drop straight to the elevation below.
Is there anyway I can achieve this with the normal workflow for creating flattened site plans from polygon geometry, or if not, what would be the quickest way to make them vertical after the embankment has been created using other tools.
Many thanks in advance for any pointers.
