Re: PPF Plot formatting into AUTOCAD

Make sure you're running V14C2k or V15C1a. In order to align each section sub-plot in a regular grid, you're effectively either asking them to all be the same size or the insertion points to be at a fixed interval. If you open the Section X Plot PPF Editor and select the Plot parameters branch on t...

Re: String/Model Comparison Tools

if well named and unique strings, there is a COMPARE tool (use search box forget the full name) actually maybe compare named strings but

Re: Extend String to intersect a TIN

Can anyone advise how you can extend a Super String (NOT SA) to intersect a TIN surface? Thx. A few questions before this can be answered. EDIT There are several possibilities 1. is this a string authored by the apply-mtf process - or - just a random 3d (super) string? 2. If apply-mtf, Which plane?...

Re: TIN Flow Arrows - Head Size / Ratio

probably not the hardwired ones.
But there were macros bouncing around which created arrow strings (slope coloured etc) colour and in that case you potentially do whatever you like, ie use differnt symbol ...

Re: 12d v14 OpenGL view

Ed, your were correct, the HP docking station is underpowered for the Dell, but I wouldn't know how to use the supplied power unit and the docking station in tandem. Perhaps that product Paul sent through is an answer. 1. You can plug in a power supply to the Dell laptop and You can plug in a power...
