Solid Model from Section to Point

Solid Model from Section to Point operation is used to create a solid model suitable for inflection method from the last selected section to a point at a specified distance. This way, solid model that represents the ore does not end sharply along cross section and can be muffled with a suitable distance and according to an inflection method. 

Before this option is used, the point to be considered must be created parallel to section. In order to create the point object, Point option under Intro menu can be used. 

Create Intersection

It is activated if you want to create intersections between sections creating the solid model. 

Number of Intersections: It is the number of intersections to be created between sections.

Normalize Cross Sections

Min. Point Distance: Minimum distance of every line segment on section line. For example, if min. point distance is given to be 5; all points between A point and B point with this distance are deleted. 

Max: Point Distance:Maximum distance of every line segment on section line. 

Min. Angle: It is what degree every sequential line segment will be on the section line. For example; if there are 360 points for 360 degrees in a circle; if it is given 30 degree minimum angle will be 360:30 = 12 points and circle is turned into a dodecagon.


Two different methods may be used to create intersurface solid model. These are, Shell Model and Tetrahedron Model methods.

  • Shell Model: Shell Model is mostly preferred to create a realistic solid model between non-parallel surfaces.
  • Tetrahedron Model: It is mostly preferred to create a solid model between parallel surfaces.
Inflection Amount

Shape of the solid model (concave, sharp and convex) to be created from section to point is determined.
