Auto Balance allows you to adjust the vertical or horizontal alignment of existing cross-sections to produce balanced, full bench cut (all cut) or all fill cross-sections.

The results of Auto Balance should be considered only as a starting point for a design; individual cross-sections are modified without any consideration of the previous or next design point.
