Convert Boundary

The Convert Boundary option can be used to convert an existing boundary in your model into a different type of boundary, or drawing tool. This saves the trouble of having to delete a boundary and re-enter the coordinates as a different boundary type. For example, you might want to convert a Water Table into a Piezometric line. This could be easily done with the Convert Boundary option.

To use Convert Boundary:

  1. Select Convert Boundary from the Boundaries menu.
  2. Use the mouse to select the boundaries you would like to convert.
    • You can select any type of Slide2 model boundary to convert (except the External Boundary)
    • You can select any number of boundaries at the same time
    • You can select different types of boundaries at the same time
  3. When you are finished selecting, press Enter or right-click and select Done Selection.
  4. You will see a dialog which allows you to select the new boundary type.
    • You may choose from Material, Water Table, Piezometric Line, Tension Crack or Polyline drawing tool
    • If the selected boundary forms a closed polygon, then you will have the additional choice of converting the boundary into a Polygon drawing tool
  5. Select a boundary type in the dialog, select OK, and all selected boundaries will be converted into the new boundary type.

Right-Click Shortcut

Convert Boundary is also available as a right-click option for individual boundaries. This works as follows:

  1. Locate the cursor over a boundary that you wish to convert.
  2. Click the RIGHT mouse button, and the boundary will be "selected".
  3. A popup menu will appear with a Convert Boundary sub-menu.
  4. Choose a boundary type from the sub-menu and the selected boundary will be converted to the new boundary type.
