Slope Wizard

The Slope Wizard option allows you to very quickly create an extruded 3D slope model with a few mouse clicks. You can easily change the slope angle and add different material layers all within a single dialog, and generate a ready-to-compute 3D model. The Slope Wizard option is useful for demonstration and teaching purposes.

  1. Select the Geometry geometry workflow tab workflow tab.
  2. Select Slope Wizard from the toolbar or the Geometry menu.
  3. You will see the Slope Wizard dialog, which has two input tabs:
    • Geometry
    • Materials
  4. In the Geometry tab, you can enter the slope angles and dimensions which are defined in the diagram within the dialog. You can also define the extrusion distance and axis direction.
  5. In the Materials tab, you can define any number of (non-intersecting) material planes and assign material properties. The planes are defined by elevations at the left and right edges of the slope model and do not have to be horizontal.
  6. Select OK to generate the model.

Models generated by the Slope Wizard option are fully defined 3D slope models, with External Volume assigned. They can be created in a minute or two and are ready to compute. The Slope Wizard option is useful for demonstration and teaching purposes and is not intended to replace the full 3D modelling capabilities of Slide3.

Edit Slope Wizard Model

After a model has been created with the Slope Wizard, editing capabilities are limited. You cannot directly edit the geometry created by the Slope Wizard, however, you can add entities to the model such as additional material surfaces, loading and support.

For an example of this option see Tutorial 02 - Slope Wizard.
