Edit Shotcrete Layer

The Edit Shotcrete Layer option (Perimeter Support) allows you to edit shotcrete layers which have been added to the perimeter of the excavation. With this option:

  • You can change the shotcrete property type which is assigned to a layer.
  • You can change the start and end points of a layer.

To edit a shotcrete layer:

  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 Shotcrete Layer Edit Layer Icon option from the Sidebar or the Edit sub-menu of the Support menu.
  3. TIP: You can also right click directly on a shotcrete layer you wish to edit and select Edit Layer from the popup menu. This will directly display the Edit Shotcrete Layer on Perimeter dialog, so you can skip step 3.

  4. You will be prompted to select a layer. Position the cross-hair cursor inside a layer and click the mouse. The layer will be selected (highlighted by dotted lines). Right click and select Done Selection Green Checkmark, or press ENTER, and you will see the Edit Shotcrete Layer On Perimeter dialog.

    • Select the Adjust End Points Adjust Installation Points Button button in the Edit Shotcrete Layer On Perimeter dialog.
    • The dialog will close, and you will be prompted to select either endpoint of the layer (each endpoint will be highlighted by a cross-hair icon).
    • Hover the mouse over either endpoint, and the cursor will change to a 4-way arrow symbol.
    • When you see this, you can click and drag the endpoint to a new location on the perimeter.
    • As you move the endpoint, the layer will be interactively updated on the screen.
    • When the endpoints are moved to the desired locations, right click and select Done Green Checkmarks, or press ENTER, and the updated layer will be applied to the model.
