Data Table Window

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewReturn to Top Next page












The Data Table window is located on the right-hand side of the screen and is blank by default. This window contains the data stored in the currently selected geometry or non-geometry object, as well as some information about the type of data this object contains. The Data Table Window can be moved anywhere on the screen, attached to the side (or pinned to the side) of the CAD window. The data will be displayed in an appropriate format, depending on the type of object selected, based on the following list:


Cross Section:Input fields for the cross section parameters are displayed.


Flyby:A table of flyby locations, orientations and path parameters is displayed.


Grid:A table of grid points and elevation values is displayed.


Material:A display name and color is displayed, in addition to basic volume-mass parameters, and a summary of material properties if available.


Mesh:A table of mesh points is displayed. For indexed meshes, a second table of triangle index numbers is also displayed.


Polygon:A table of polygon points is displayed.


Polyline:A table of polyline points is displayed.


Region:A table of region points is displayed.


Scatter:A table of scatter points is displayed.


Slice:The slice equation is displayed, plus a listing of all geometry objects being sliced through.


Volume:A grid of region-layer blocks is displayed, with a check box indicating visibility of each block. Materials can be assigned from the Materials tab. Settings are also included to change the appearance of the volume lines and fill, and color scheme or palette used to color each block uniquely.


Other types:The window is empty.




Geometry defined in an external file will be displayed here but cannot be edited. This may be changed via a geometry action.
