various gradients on complex designs

Recommended Posts

Hi - is there a simple way to create gradients that fall in more than one direction, for example on a curved, sloping driveway ? The 'Draw 3D' with slab tool allows a gradient to be formed but I frequently have the need to incorporate gradients in more that one direction

While @Alan Woodwell options is viable you may find out that you will need to use a combination of pads and grade objects. I often end up using pads to get the right slope and cross slope for larger areas and then use contours and other grade objects to get the desired effect.
