Model Edits (Terrain Filtering)

Model Edits (Terrain Filtering)

Draw a polygon by clicking its corner point and closing it with a double click.  This will show the marked area and it will show you some measurements of the area.  At this point you may preview the result or simply save it.  Previewing it will show you the new contour lines for that area as shown on the right side below. 


Saving it will list it on the left panel as shown below as shown below and you will now have the option to turn that filter on or off as needed. 

The two figures below show an example of volume calculation with and without the filters for the same area. 

For more details please refer to our Model Edits - How to Reduce Noise video.
