Command Licensing and Default Menu Location
- The Offset Surface 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 offset an entire surface or an area of a surface within a clipping boundary to create a new surface model. This is a quick and easy tool to create e.g. Topsoil Strip surfaces from an Existing Ground surface model.
Command Interface Description
The Offset Surface command dialog looks as follows
Select the surface that you wish to apply the surface offsets to. Typically this would be the Existing Ground surface if for example you are applying Topsoil Strip depths or unsuitable soils removal.
New surface name:
Enter the name for the adjusted surface that you are creating e.g. Topsoil Strip
Enter the vertical offset that you wish to use for your adjustment. Enter a negative value to adjust the source surface downwards (soil removal) and a positive value if you wish to raise the surface.
If you wish to adjust just an area of the source surface, or if you have different areas with different offsets, select the limit boundary that you wish to apply.
Executes the command, creates the offset surface and closes on completion
Closes the command without further execution.
Note: if you create different soil strip depth area surfaces and wish to combine those into a single surface - made up of separated “islands” use the Combine surfaces macro command.
