The understanding of the “Model” is essential in order to fully exploit all Analist potential.
A model is simply a group of layers. In real situations drawings include entities spread on layers which are distinguished in order to better organise the project.
For example, a topographic survey of the land may contain 3D points on the 3D-Points layer, lines to represent the discontinuity of the land in 3D-Road and lines or two-dimensional polylines to record the properties on the 2D-Properties layer.
To enable Analist to create a TIN model (three-dimensional triangles) it is necessary to create a terrain model, assign the most simple name (for example Terrain) and include the 3D-Ponts and 3D-Road layers. It is not necessary to include the 2D-Properties as its entities are not part of the TIN model creation.
Many Analist commands request the identification of a model in order to obtain results.
0:10 – Start from a spot height plan (model)
0:31 – Select models
0:36 – Right click and choose create model
0:43 – Name the model
0:55 – Select layers from drawing entities
1:08 – Right click to confirm the command
