What's new – New workspace tool: Raise and lower terrain uniformly

Mar 15, 2019

We have added a new terrain edit tool for workspaces. The tool allows you to draw a path or a polygon and raise or lower all parts of the terrain covered by the object by a fixed amount. This is useful for e.g. modeling water tubes in emergency response situations where the water tube follows the terrain instead of being set at a fixed absolute elevation.

Example of a 1 meter tall water tube rolled out on a shore. The profile window shows the original terrain (blue line in the graph) and how the water tube (red line in the graph) follows the original terrain, but 1 meters higher.
