  2. You will be prompted to enter the Focus Point. Enter the point graphically with the mouse, or enter x,y coordinates in the prompt line.
  3. The Focus Point will be added to the model.

An example of a Focus Point, and the resulting analysis, showing all generated slip circles, is illustrated in the figures below.

The Radius Increment is NOT APPLICABLE when using the Focus Point option, since only ONE circle, passing through the Focus Point, is generated for each grid slip center.

TIP: If you want to force all slip circles to pass through the toe of a slope, then use the Focus Point option to add a Focus Point at the toe of the slope.
