Preface
The following notes and standards are the basis for presentation and analysis using 12d Model range files. These notes have been arranged as a source of reference only. These notes have benefited from the feedback of others, and so indirectly have you. Ifyou felt that any part of these notes was difficult to understand, or not clear, or would benefit from more examples, or if you have any other comments at all, then please let me know.

1. Aspect Range Files


This option is used to calculate the aspect or direction of triangles in a tin. Coloured plans and reports can be generated to visually represent a projects aspect. Tins => Tin analysis => Aspect => Aspect Analysis For the production of the Aspect table refer to 5. Range File Tabulation in this document.

2. Depth Range Files


This option is possiby the most powerful tool of all the range file options. It quickly allows users to colour a proposed design and shows the various areas of cut and fill for a project. This enhances the redesign process to achieve a more favourable volumes quantity.

Tins =>Tin analysis =>Depth range polygons or Design =>Volumes =>Exact


Project Engineers, Quantity surveyors or any non-technical observer can quickly understand areas of importance and can provide feedback. Project surveyors can also use these tool to produce subbase conformance report or overlay of existing pavements where necessary. The Exact Volumes menu can also provide a report, broken up into the various ranges for detailed analysis. For the production of the Depth Range table refer to section 5. Range File Tabulation in this document.

3. Height Range Files


This option is used to calculate height bands for the tin and colour a view and/or create faces. The calculations can be restricted to within a user selected polygon, or if no polygon is selected, the entire tin is used. Tins =>Colour =>Tin height colour

EXDS_Colour_by_Height_1m_int.hrf (1m per colour interval)

EXDS_Colour_by_Height_5m_int.hrf (5m per colour interval)

Please note the EXDS height range examples (1m, 2m, 5m & 10m intervals) range from a height of 0m to approx 2,228m. Please you check your Tins Z values via the Tins => Tin Info panel and amend the appropriate *.hrf file prior to the production of the Height Range table. For more information on the production of the table refer to 5. Range File Tabulation in this document.

4. Slope Range Files


This panel is used to calculate the slopes of triangles in the tin. The calculated slopes can be produced and reported over user supplied slope ranges. A plan view can be coloured on a slope basis using the same range file and a report file can be produced for further analysis. Tins =>Tin analysis =>Slope=>Slope analysis

EXDS_Slope_2_percent_int.srf (2% slope per colour interval)

EXDS_Slope_4_percent_int.srf (4% slope per colour interval)

The slopes in the file can be percent cross fall, "1v in" slope or degrees (in 12dModel dms format) but they must all be of the same type in the file. For the production of the Aspect table refer to 5. Range File Tabulation in this document.

5. Range File Tabulation


The production of a table or index, graphically correlated with a plan to explain various changes to height, slope, aspect or depth, can be very beneficial to a non-technical audience. This option to produce this table is available under; Drafting =>Text and Tables =>Tabulate range file Select the Range file you have used in the production of the plan information. Type in the appropriate units for your Range file Eg. Slope Percent xfall = % Depth = m Aspect = Degrees Height = m

You will need to select or type in a location for the table. Eg. (0 0 0) or just outside your project area. Type in a Heading for the table if you desire.

Defaults Text menu


By selecting the Font button you are able to modify the text information to be displayed within your table. The default model Text will be the location of the table when produced. Set your text changes prior to selecting finished and your changes will be saved. Note: The size of the finished table is proportional to the text size set within the defaults menu. If the desired size is not achieved, simply Clean the Text model, adjust the Text size and process again.
