Move Vertically

Use this procedure to move features vertically along the z-axis. One, or a set of, features can be moved, relative to one or several surfaces selected.

1. Start the Move Vertically tool.

Find it here:

2. Select a template (optional).

3. Give the move vertically operation a suitable task name.

4. Select a location in the process tree, or write a new location. If a summary task was selected before you clicked the tool, it will pick up this location. If not, the default will be the root task.

Feature to Move

5. Click Select Feature(s) - and use the standard way of selecting the feature(s) you want to move vertically.

Calculation Basic

6. In the Calculation Basic pane, click Select Surface to load the Dynamic Query Tool to select features to use as a calculation basis. The number of features selected will be shown in parentheses. You can select more than one feature, but all the features selected need to have surface geometry.


7. In the Modification pane there are several options to manipulate the z-value to be calculated:

8. Click Preview to see the result graphically, given the current task properties. The feature(s) moved will be presented in the available windows. If you want to open another window, without finishing the tool, this is possible, e.g., right-click the Quadri model node and select Show in 3D.

9. Click Finish to perform the move and add the new task to the model.

10. Click Cancel will clean up any preview and exit the tool.

Note: If you have subsurface investigations where the distance to the rock (sub)surface is given by a positive z-value (the “depth” value), use this tool to move them vertically by using option 7.2 and using the ground surface as a calculation basis.

If you have road marking data in 2D, use this tool to move the road markings vertically, using the designed road surfaces as a calculation basis.
