The ditches object allows you to create a V-shaped ditch on the surface model.
The ditches object reads AutoCAD polylines, lines, arcs, circles, ellipses, and splines. A ditch is a V-shaped geometry cut into the surface model along the polyline.
Layer where ditch polylines or lines are.
Material of the ditch.
A descriptive text for the entry. If defined, it will be shown instead of the long description.
• info text
Information text attached to items.
• info URL
URL link attached to items. MAGNET Explorer can launch a web browser with the URL.
• object data tables
These are Autodesk Map object data tables that will be used for source of object information for the elements in the virtual model. The table list also matches wildcards.
Width of the ditch in drawing units.
Depth of the ditch in drawing units.
These material area settings affect only the surface on layers defined here. The default value (*) means that all surfaces are affected.
The name of the group of these items.
If multiple layers are at the same height, the generation priority defines which one has a higher priority and shows it on top of the other object. (In practice, it is recommended to give a small additional height value to the object to ensure the correct order of components.)
Divides the original polyline with this distance and adds new points. This parameter is useful for better control of following surface and long arc segments.
Divides polylines using an angle threshold so that the resulting polyline will fall within this angle value. This only affects curved polyline segments like splines and arcs.
