Solid Commands

The Solid Properties dialog allows the user to edit/view attributes of the selected solid. This dialog can be accessed by selecting a solid from the Project Explorer, right-clicking to access the pop up menu, and selecting the Properties command. It can also be accessed by double-clicking on a solid in the graphics window, or by selecting a solid and then selecting the Properties command from the Edit menu.

The following items can be edited in the Properties dialog:

  • Solid Name – Name of the solid.
  • Solid Material – Material associated with the solid. The list will only show materials contained in the Materials dialog.
  • Begin Layer – Beginning grid layer assigned to solid used with the Solids→MODFLOW procedure.
  • End Layer – Ending grid layer assigned to solid used with the Solids→MODFLOW procedure.
  • Use top cell bias– Option for using the top cell bias used with the Solids→MODFLOW procedure.
  • Top cell bias – The percent to bias the thickness of the top cell with the Solids→MODFLOW procedure.
  • Target min. cell thickness – Minimum cell thickness used with the Solids→MODFLOW procedure.
Example of the solids Properties dialog

The following items are displayed as information about the solid and cannot be edited in the dialog:

  • Number vertices – Total number of vertices used in the solid.
  • Number triangles – Total number of traingle elements used in the solid.
  • Max x – The maximum distance away from the origin on the x-axis.
  • Min x – The minimum distance away from the origin on the x-axis.
  • Max y – The maximum distance away from the origin on the y-axis.
  • Min y – The minimum distance away from the origin on the y-axis.
  • Max z – The maximum distance away from the origin on the z-axis.
  • Min z – The minimum distance away from the origin on the z-axis.
  • Centroid,x – The point on the x-axis that is at the center of the solid.
  • Centroid,y – The point on the y-axis that is at the center of the solid.
  • Centroid,z – The point on the z-axis that is at the center of the solid.
  • Volume – The calculated volume of the solid.
  • Projection – The projection coordinates the solid is using.
