grid creation question

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I was wondering if there is a way to create a feature arc - redistribute vertices on it - select all vertices and convert them to nodes (it is possible to do up to this point) - then delete the arc itself leaving only nodes (or not delete the arc but be able to select a node (or all) on the arc and change the node attirbute)

I want this to be able to create evenly distributed "refine points" - I can select any node or all the nodes on the created and distributed arc - right click to it - node attribute option is there but it does not open the refine point options window. bug ? it works when I just create a node. the model for the default coverage is selected as CMS-Wave. SMS 10.1 64 bit.

or any other way to do this? I want to create a grid that will be very fine on land and it will get coarser as I go off shore. I also want the j direction density to be higher in the middle of grid, with decreasing density towards the side boundaries.

something like this http://cirp.usace.army.mil/wiki/File:IV-69-Fig10.png

any help is appreciated.

thanks

There is no really simple way to do this but there is a round about way.

You will need to create two points(mesh nodes) in the mesh module and then select them.

Right click on them and select interpolate options

Here you can specify spacing.

You then have to select save as and choose tabular data file as the file type

select the right data to be saved i.e. x, y coordinates

With the new file, click and drag the new file into SMS.

It should bring up the import wizard

Select next

Change the SMS data type: to feature points

There you should have refine points which you can choose to refine the in the j direction
