Edit Bolt Pattern

The Edit Bolt Pattern option (Perimeter Support) allows you to edit Bolt Patterns which have been added to the perimeter of the excavation.

  • You can edit any of the pattern parameters such as bolt length, spacing, offset.
  • You can also edit the installation points of a pattern (start, end, and drilling point if applicable).

NOTE: It is not possible to edit individual bolts in a pattern. Pattern bolts can only be edited as a group. All bolts will have the same properties, length, spacing, etc. If you require different bolt properties for certain bolts, you will have to use multiple Bolt Patterns, or use the Add Spot Bolt option.

  1. First, make sure you are viewing the Perimeter Support Designer view (select the Perimeter Support Designer Support Designer Icon button from the toolbar).
  2. Select the Edit Bolt Pattern Edit Bolt Pattern Icon option from the Sidebar or the Edit sub-menu of the Support menu.

TIP: You can also right click directly on any bolt in the pattern you wish to edit and select Edit Bolt Pattern from the popup menu. This will directly display the Edit Bolt Pattern On Perimeter dialog, so you can skip step 3.
