Add Spot Bolt

Rock bolts are added to an SWedge model with the Add Bolt option.

To add a rock bolt:

  1. Select Add Bolt from the toolbar or the Support menu.
  2. Move the cursor into the Top, Front or Perspective views.
  3. Notice that the cursor changes to an "arrow / rockbolt" icon.
  4. As you move the cursor over the wedge, notice that the "rockbolt" and "arrow" now line up – this indicates that you may add the bolt to the wedge.
  5. Click the LEFT mouse button at a point on the wedge where you want the bolt installed.
  6. The Add Spot Bolt dialog will appear on the screen, which allows you to modify the bolt orientation and other properties.
  7. When the desired bolt properties have been entered, select OK.
  8. If you are not happy with the location of the bolt, select Cancel to delete the bolt.
Although the Side orthogonal view can be used for adding bolts, this is not recommended, as correct placement may be difficult or impossible. (If the Dip Directions of the Upper and Face Slope are the same it will NOT be possible to add bolts in the Side orthogonal view.)

Add Spot Bolt Dialog

The Add Spot Bolt dialog, which appears when Adding or Editing Bolts, works as follows:

  1. You can modify the bolt length, select the bolt property type, select the type of orientation definition and the trend and plunge angles of the bolt if you have "Trend/Plunge" Orientation type selected.
  2. When the bolt orientation, length and property are satisfactory, select OK, and the bolt will be added to the model (if you were Adding Bolts), or saved with the new definition (if you were Editing Bolts).
  3. If you are not happy with the location of the bolt, select Cancel, and the bolt will be deleted (if you were Adding Bolts). If you were Editing Bolts, all changes will be cancelled, even if you used the Apply button to apply the changes.
