3D Wedge View

The 3D Wedge View is displayed by default when you create or open a RocPlane file. The view provides a three-dimensional Perspective View of the RocPlane model as well as three orthogonal views (Top / Front / Side) in a four-pane split-screen format.

NOTE: It's important to remember that RocPlane is a two-dimensional analysis and that the 3D Wedge View is for visualization purposes only. To view a two-dimensional version of the model, use the 2D Wedge View.

To display the 3D Wedge View:

  • Select the 3D View toolbar button
  • Select Main 3D View on the Analysis menu.

Main 3D View

NOTE: All force arrows on the view represent only the direction of a given force. Arrow sizes are not scaled for magnitude. They only represent the presence and direction of a given force.

TIP: If you have multiple views open or you've closed the 3D Wedge View, you can re-open it any time by selecting 3D View on the toolbar or Main 3D View on the Analysis menu.

3D Wedge View Display Options

You can control the appearance of the 3D Wedge View using the Display Options dialog. To open the dialog:
