  1. Hi forum folks, Does anybody know of a way to label the x-coordinate / of observation profile arcs in the plan view? I'd like to know the x-distance coordinates of the obstructions in my model so I can add them into the profile plots... (a related wish list item would be for obstructions to automatically show up in profile plots...) thx, -dale
  2. Old post here, but I was looking for a similar functionality for SMS and stumbled on a work-around for setting a specific range of values to transparent (maybe it'll work for GMS?) I used the dataset toolbox, modification tool (filter) to set values near zero to 'null'. Then the color ramp can still be solid, but the 'null' values will be transparent. -d
  3. Thanks - this is helpful (kinda). It does give you a dotted line, but it also seems to leave the polygons (at elevation 0) so depending on the angle you review the mesh at, it can be hard to see since the polygons show up underneath. I'd really like to be able to inspect the roughness for each element - maybe a drape feature? It'd also be useful to me to be able to click on an element and have the roughness value display along with the elevation data. -d
  4. Thanks, After running the pre-processor with Option 3 - Custom Interface and entering the selecting the .srhhydro file, the srh2-d pre-processor window closes (by itself) and I get a zero KB casename.dat file. Refreshing the folder display... and presto! a full-sized casename.dat file. (So the procedure you suggested is great Cody, thanks. sorry for the confusion). The error I got in my earlier post seems to have been related to a mal-formed obstruction definition... -d
  5. Hello forum folks, Is there a way to display the materials on the actual mesh elements? That functionality used to exist (in an earlier release of SMS?)... but the options to turn on materials don't seem to be available anymore. That was a very helpful function for confirming material mapping was consistent with the elements. -d
  6. Hi Cody. This is the set of files I see in the directory after the "Export" : when I run the preprocessor with option 3 and point it to the *.srhhydro file, it does some brief processing, then spits out these additional files (and closes the window abruptly): The size of the *.dat file is concerning... and it causes errors in the solver routine.. So then I tried renaming the SOF to SIF and using that in another round of the preprocessor... That yielded a casename.dat file of the right size... which seems to work in the srh-2d solver. Is that the recommended workflow? -d PS - Can I call you catbert? - at first glance, that's what I thought your username was...
  7. I knew it! Once you post, you find a solution. I added both obstructions into the same map coverage... presto! You can only link one coverage apparently, but up to 99 arcs/obstructions within that coverage... disregard.
  8. Has anybody had any luck adding multiple obstructions into the same simulation? I have two nearby bridges... it will let me link either one to a simulation, but not both at the same time... Documentation seems to suggest 99 is the limit, but I can't get past 1... thx, -d
  9. Hi forum folks, Does anybody know if SMS can still prepare the basic text input files for SRH-2D? I'd like to run my simulations on a separate machine like I use to do (back in the day). Now it seems like SMS is handling all coordination/communication with the SRH-2D solver internally... I see the potential benefits there, but while a simulation is running... I can't seem to use SMS at all.... So I'd like to have SMS prepare the input files needed for SRH-2D solver so I can run those on a separate machine, and or in the background so I can continue to use SMS tools... Usually, when I post something like this, the functionality exists (and there's a big red easy button that I've been overlooking...)... hoping that is the case here. thanks in advance! -d
  10. fwiw, I share Pablo's longing for a (better) way of monitoring simulation progress. I liked the old residual plots (been a few years since I did SMS/SRH modeling) - it was a pretty easy way of finding out if something was going wrong... Now I open my .dat files in a text editor and watch for the values to converge... not particularly advanced or efficient method (shouldn't be that hard to have SMS read that text file and give you a graph?!). The new monitor point (limited to 2!?) functionality doesn't seem very helpful. (I get output like the screenshot below which doesn't really give me confidence (but the simulation was successful): -dale
