Terrain Edit- Deleting of Triangles-Not an editable terrain

Hi,

Imported topo/Survey through "Attach Reference" method to prepare the Terrain. But its not allowing to edit the terrain/triangles and it is showing as "NOT AN EDITABLE TERRAIN"

Kindly suggest the Correct Terrain Preparation method to edit the triangles.

Thanks

  • We found that you need to Deactivate Surveying Processing Rules for the Field Book to make this work. Removing the rules as outlined above didn't work for us.

  • I have to laugh because otherwise I'd be crying.  I can unlock terrains and deactivate survey processing rules and it still wont let me edit the terrain.  God I hate this software.  Isn't the goal (or power) of this software not to break the ruled elements?  Then we have Bentley people telling us to break the ruled elements.  What programmer at Bentley thought it would be a great idea to restrict a users ability to edit a terrain.  Were they sitting at their desk thinking "hey I know, let make the terrain editing process even slower and more nerve racking.  We can rule it to the survey fieldbook and force users to draw in every single breakline to make the surface correct because thatll take the 10x longer then just flipping triangles".  It's probably the same person that thinks creating sheets with three models in ORD is a great idea too.
