Add Boundary

Used to extract implied or stored boundaries from terrains with the ability to edit / rule the boundary.

You can access this tool from the following:

  • Ribbon: Terrain > Edit > Boundary Options split button

The Add Boundary option allows the extraction of implied or stored boundaries from terrains with the ability to edit / rule the boundary. Once a boundary is added to a terrain as the edge method, the other methods of max side length and slivers are not available as they are overruled by the explicit boundary. A boundary added using this new tool can be removed using the Remove Terrain Model Boundary Tool.

The Create Terrain Boundary includes 3 methods

  1. Extract Graphic - extracts the current boundary for the triangulation to an editable 3D linestring
  2. Add Boundary - extracts the current boundary for the triangulation as an explicit boundary in the terrain element - ie locked boundary
  3. Add Ruled Boundary - extracts the current boundary for the current triangulation to an editable ruled draped boundary
