1.0 Introduction

Guide on slope hatching, modeling and ratio adjustment will be explained in this section.

2.0 Purpose

MiTS 2.0.46.0 onwards will consider slope “in” direction slope as another one different layer. The main purpose of this is to ensure the consistency of the hatching color of internal slope regardless of the comparison elevation whether it is cut or fill. This is done in order to avoid major confusion of users.

Unlike “out” direction slope, it will remain as before which is categorized into two that is “cut” or “fill”.

3.0 Slope In and Slope Out Hatch Color

Slope “in” is represented as one layer (orange as default).

Image 1 Orange hatches represent the “in” direction slope

Slope “out” can be represented as two different hatches, either cut hatching or fill hatching.

Image 2 Blue hatch represents “cut” and pink hatch represents “fill”

4.0 Create Slope In and Slope Out

4.1 Slope “in”

Slope “in” can be created either within platform or by sharing an edge of two platforms.

Within platform

Double click the platform > Set “In” in Slope Direction column > Click OK

Image 3 Slope Direction is set to In

Image 4 Slope “In” Output

Sharing Edge

Users can assign a slope to be shared between an edge of two platforms.

Go to “Options > Project Parameters > Earthworks > Typical Slope > Centralize Common Slope (tick)”

If the centralized common slope is not assigned, the slope will be towards only on one side.

Image 5 Centralize Common Slope parameter

To create an equal divided slope between two platform, tick the Centralize Common Slopes as shown

above. Then, set “in” at the sharing edge.

Image 6 Edge 4 is assigned as In

4.2 Slope “out”

Double click the platform > Set “out” in Slope Direction column > Click OK

Image 9 Slope Direction is set as “out”

5.0 Slope In and Slope Out Ratio

5.1 Slope “in” ratio

To change the ratio for slope ‘in”, users can change it in the Platform Editor by double clicking the platform and adjust the ratio.

Or users can do the adjustment in the Project Parameter which only applicable towards new platform. *For existing platforms, users may use the above method.

Go to “Options > Project Parameters > Earthworks > Typical Slope > Slope in Slope”

5.2 Slope out ratio

Slope out is divided into “cut” or “fill. Therefore, to change the cut/fill ratio, users may make an adjustment in Platform Editor by double clicking the platform.

Or users can do the adjustment in the Project Parameter which only applicable towards new platform. *For existing platforms, users may use the above method.

Go to “Options > Project Parameters > Earthworks > Typical Slope > Cut Slope / Fill Slope”
