Define Limits

  • Select in the profile view
  • Select Set Limits button in the Resurfacing toolbar
  • Enter design limitations for thickness and slope
  • Select OK

Apply Thickness

  • In Design ribbon
  • Minimum Thickness group
    • Over Surface
    • At Lowest Point
    • At Highest Point
    • Along String
    • Set Thickness
    • Correct
  • Over Surface
    • Apply minimum thickness over natural surface
    • Use for no mill situation
  • Along String
    • Apply minimum thickness over selected string(s)
    • Same as Over Surface at defaults
  • At Lowest Point
    • Preserves cross slope
    • Minimum thickness at lowest point in cross-section
    • For no mill project
  • At Highest Point
    • Preserves cross slope
    • Minimum thickness at highest point in cross-section
    • For forced mill project
  • Set Thickness
    • Enter thickness to add to natural surface
    • Creates mill to minimum fill thickness
    • For forced mill project
  • Correct
    • Changes limit of minimum fill thickness to insure minimum mill
    • Does not change design surface
    • For forced mill project 

Lift to Yield

  • Open Design ribbon
  • Select Raise/Lower Surface button
  • Enter amount to raise or lower to match desired yield volume
    • Raise to decrease mill and increase fill
    • Lower to decrease fill and increase mill
    • Minimum on fill not on mill
    • No maximums
  • Select OK

Smooth Profile

  • Open Design ribbon
  • Select Average Level button
  • Enter range and select strings to average
  • Enter Length for the average
    • Half ahead and half behind
  • Select OK
    • Cumulative effect when applied multiple times
  • Running elevation average – same effect as a mechanical ski 
  • Open Design ribbon
  • Select Smooth Profile button
  • Enter range and select strings to affect
  • Enter spacing and relative slope
  • Select or enter fill/mill ratio
    • 0 = only mill
    • 100 = only fill
  • Select OK
    • Forces profile into parameters
    • Not always a solution
    • No change if applied multiple times
  • Best used to take out dips or bumps not resolved by Average Level 

Manually Address Problem Areas

  • Select in profile view
  • Icons become active in Resurface toolbar
  • Set start and end stations in profile view
  • Select drag mode
  • Set profile lock
  • Drag intersection point to desired location

Drag Mode

  • Lift
    • Maintains shape within limits
  • Bend
    • Bends shape from drag point to limits
  • Straight
    • Straight grade from drag point to limits
  • Off
    • Straight grade from drag point to nearest IPs

Profile Lock

  • Locks all profiles together
  • Dragging one profile affects all profiles
  • Maintains cross slopes

Define Cross Slopes

  • Average
  • Apply to Current Range
  • Transition

Average

  • Set start and end stations in profile view
  • Open Design ribbon
  • Select Average button
  • Select surface from which average cross slopes
  • Select crown mode
    • Checked for crowned
    • Uncheck for super elevation
  • Select OK

 

Apply to Current Range

  • Open Design ribbon
  • Select Apply to Current Range button
  • Enter station range
  • Enter desired cross fall
  • Select string range
  • Select how to apply cross fall
  • Select OK

Transition

  • Open Design ribbon
  • Select Transition button
  • Enter station range
  • Select strings
  • Select OK
