Press ENTER to finish drawing the calculation line. The line will be thicker at the higher elevation to help you visualize how it slopes.
If you checked Calculate Vertical Illuminance Levels, you will then be prompted to specify on which side of the line the vertical illuminance levels will be displayed.
Specify side to place vertical illuminance values:
You will then be prompted to insert the calculation schedule, group the calculation line with an area, or press ENTER to finish the command.
Specify insertion point for calculation schedule or point inside boundary to group with:
Insert a Calculation Schedule: To insert a calculation schedule, select a point on the drawing that is not inside of a calculation area. A calculation schedule will be inserted at the point specified.
Group with an Area: To group the line with an area, select a point on the drawing that is inside of a calculation area. The two will be grouped. If the selected calculation area already has a calculation schedule on the drawing, it will be used as the calculation schedule for the group. If it does not have a calculation schedule, no calculation schedule will be used for the group.
Finish the Command: Press ENTER to finish the command without inserting a calculation schedule or grouping the calculation line with an area. No calculation schedule will be inserted and the calculation line will be in its own separate group.
