Command Licensing and Default Menu Location
- The Add Isopach command is part of the RPS Modeling Toolbox
- The command is located on the Modeling macros menu ribbon
- The command is located in the Surface / Volumes menu group
Provides the ability to add back or subtract a percentage of the difference in volume between two surfaces in order to surcharge a surface to allow for settlement or to remove additional material as a percentage of cut depth to allow for over excavation for example.
Command Interface Description
In order to run this command, you must have first created two surfaces e.g. Existing and Finished Grade, and you must have first created either a Cut Fill Map or run the Earthwork Report to compute the volumes between the two surfaces (either process creates an Isopach Surface that can be used in this command.
New surface name:
Input the name of the surface to be created using the Reference and Isopach models
For areas of the Isopach that have positive numbers (Fill) enter a factor / percentage of the Isopach model height that you want to add to the reference surface e.g 0.2
For areas of the Isopach that have negative numbers (Cut) enter a factor / percentage of the Isopach model depth that you want to subtract from the reference surface e.g 0.0 if you do not want to apply any factor or 0.1 if you want to apply 10%
Select the Isopach surface that you want to use for the computation. An Isopach surface is always computed when you run the Earthworks Report (Surface to Surface volume calculations). The Cut / Fill Map creation process also creates an Isopach surface.
Select the Reference surface that you want to use for the computation. The percentage of the Isopach that you selected above will be computed and used to adjust the elevations of the Reference Surface to compute the new surface model.
