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 a frame is a tool 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 in its new location or assigned to an area.
🛈 When a frame is red it does not count to any area's capacity.
To do this you need to click on Adapt to terrain and follow the procedure:
Select frame row, a single frame, or a PV area.
Press Enter or Space.
Select PV area; (if the table is inside two areas or over two areas)
Adapt to the terrain - individual frames
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 the terrain - an entire row
If you are selecting the entire row, it will keep the original column spacing defined in the Frame & Park settings before the generation.
Adapt to the terrain - an entire PV area
You can select an entire area to be adapted to the terrain and there are more than a few scenarios where this will come in handy. Here are a few examples:
When you have a lot of restriction zones in the PV area.
When you need to elevate all your tables at once to reduce collision and minimize grading costs.
When you receive a new topography to use for your project.
