Hi does anyone know how to translate a tin to have a consistent depth through out a slope. I have a mountain design that have a slope of 1 in 3 on both sides and want to add a 300mm top soil. When I used translate tin function it gives less than 300mm depth on the slope sides. How do I solve this?

thank you in advance

I don't think there is such tool, irregular shapes are difficult

you could convert TIN to Strings
(tins-utilities menu)

and translate those by 350ish mm to get your 300mm depth

or you could use the settlement option
design->more->settlement
and calculate a grid of point by hand and the macro will approximate the rest

if you are looking for the volume of the 300mm layer. Use the surface area within a polygon option in Tins / Tin Analysis > and multiply by 0.3

if you need to generate line work for sections, may be quicker to manually add later.
