Adapt to terrain

This tool is used to adapt a copied or moved frame to its new location's terrain.
It allows the user to fully customize PV table placement.

🛈 Adapt to terrain is used when your frames were generated using a topographic survey.

🛈 Reassign frames is used when your frames were generated without a topographic survey.

After moving or copying the frame - it will be colored in red. This indicates that the table needs to be adapted to the terrain its new location or assigned to an area.

🛈 When a frame is red it does not count to any areas capacity.

To do this you need to click on Adapt to terrain and follow the procedure:

  1. Select frame row or a single frame;
  2. Press Enter or Space.
  3. Select PV area; (if the table is inside two areas or over two areas)

Adapt to terrain - individual frame

If you are selecting an individual frame, you can force the frame to be adapted anywhere in the PVarea without following the previous alignment.

Adapt to terrain - entire row

If you are selecting the entire row, then it will keep the original column spacing which was defined in the Frame & Park settings before the generation.

Adapt to terrain - restrictions and rows

Adapt to terrain allows you to place tables on top of restrictions so that you're always able to manually override the placement of tables to squeeze in more capacity.

However, if you have a restriction region in the middle of the row - this might cause tables to overlap on the restriction region like in the example below.

If you need to keep the tables from climbing on top of restriction zones - simply select the table row for each restriction side separately.

Adapt to terrain - multiple presets

If you have multiple presets in your layout, then you can change the table placement in a row by placing the table in between existing ones.
