Question 1: How to set the slope direction for platforms? #
In MiTS, newly imported or created platforms are initially set with a default slope direction of “Out”. Users have the flexibility to redefine the slope direction for each platform edge, choosing between “Out”, “In” and “None”.
For step-by-step instructions on this feature, users may follow the Guide on Slope “In” and “Out”.
Question 2: How can we customize the slope dimension for a project? #
Our new Slope Template Configuration feature allows users to easily customize both the “In” and “Out” slope dimensions independently.
This feature offers the flexibility to set different ratios, maximum heights and plan lengths for each slope tier, various cut and fill scenarios, or the right and left slopes of road design. This allows precise customization of the slope designs to meet diverse project requirements.
For more guidance on using this feature, please refer to our documentation on How to Modify Slope Dimension.
Question 3: How to have slopes start from the boundary line? #
In the latest update (this feature is for MiTS 3), users are no longer obligated to create a platform with specific shapes or designated size areas when designing a slope.
A specialized platform has been introduced, simplifying the process by only requiring users to define a single line with directions (Left or Right and Up or Down) for slope generation in their designs. Moreover, users have the flexibility to set different slope dimensions for each line, adhering to the wall slope template configurations.
This enhancement empowers users to generate slopes directly from the boundary line, eliminating the previous need for intricate modeling techniques. Additionally, the feature serves as a boundary, preventing nearby platforms from generating slopes when in contact with the wall line.
Further understanding of the feature and how it can be used in your project can be referred to in our documentation on Wall Lines.
Question 4: How can we design a slope to start at a certain height #
In MiTS 2, customization of the slope starting level can be done per platform edge basis to provide users with more design flexibility as per the image below. Users may refer to the following blog post to learn step-by-step on How to Start Slope at A Certain Level.
Question 5: How to reorder the slope so that the full berm is located at the bottom part? #
In MiTS, slopes start at the platform edge and stop when they reach another platform, the ground, or a boundary line that acts as a stopper.
If a platform is set to slope in, there is a possibility for a partial berm to be located at the bottom part as it reaches the platform level defined. To change this, user can easily reorder the slope using the Reorder Slope function in the software. This will ensure the partial berm is located at the top part and the full berm at the bottom part, as shown in the image below.
Question 6: How to design centralized between slope and conjoined platforms? #
In Earthwork designs, users may need to design two connected platforms with the slopes between them continuously connected as in the image below.
Sharing a centralized slope can be achieved by following the modeling technique documented in How to Model Sharing Slope Between Conjoined Platforms.
