Re: View Toolbar with model selection etc is missing from some views

HI Graeme,

Fair enough, it hasn't happened for a little while and I had the feeling that the 2 issues often happen at the same time.

Re: View Toolbar with model selection etc is missing from some views

This has happened with different versions over many years. I find it frequently leads to a view that can't be returned to the top of the stack, ie. you can click on the tab for that view and it will not come to the fore on screen and there seems no way to retrieve it short of minimizing any other vi...

Thanks for the link Nicholas. I still wouldn't mind a logical presentation of the first 4 videos in this series.

Re: Free Training Webinar - Trimesh BIM Create/Edit - Part 2 (Advanced)

Hi Lisa,

I might just be having a bloke look but I can't easily identify which are the earlier videos in the sequence or what order to watch them in. Is there a useful index for the videos on YouTube or a better way to sort them?

If you want points instead of a line you can use Strings>Strings edit>Change then use the New point-line box to change to points. If you want points and the original line then you could use Strings>Strings edit>Duplicate and then Change from line to points. If you have a lot of strings to do you can...

Cameron, Have a play with Report>Quantities , go to the Lengths tab and check Use 3d length?. You can use a wildcard or be very specific for the Key/Name and you will need to assign a cost before it will generate a result (I use 0 or 1 unless you have an actual cost). Report mode of Summary is handy...

Topic: Longplot reverse chainage
Replies: 2

Why? If the chainages are irrelevant you could reverse the primary string and the longplot will reverse. Alternatively you could plot to a model and then apply a factor of negative 1 to reverse the image but that might screw with your text. Not sure if you could do something with chainage equalities.

You're in the wrong section. Sorry, couldn't resist. Have a look at your text style particularly the units to see if they are world style or paper style. Paper style will plot a certain size on the page regardless of your plot scale, so 5mm will always plot at 5mm. World style on the other hand are ...

You can only do 1 type of regression at a time, ie. linear, arc, circle. So you need to have your data in separate strings and work your way through it. Use the pick button to select the data for the regression and voila! Have a look at the help file it explains things fairly well.

Not really, Mat did ask about depths but then gave heights instead.

Except I doubt he's got 325m depth of sludge, that's a height range file you've described. For a depth range file you will be looking at values from 0 to maybe a couple of metres in 0.5 increments or something like that.

What is an RR file? When you say null vertices, are you trying to locate points with no height on them? If so what do you want to do with them? Give them a height or delete them? You can't readily access the uid for a point in 12d. The uid is the unique identifier in the internal database which iden...

Yes, if you're doing a string inquire just type the letter p on your keyboard which will bring up a text box with the p (point) character, continue typing the point id you are looking for directly after the p, without any spaces, hit enter and voila, you should find your point.
