The standard Refine Point dialog

The Refine Point dialog is used to set the attributes for a refine point represented by a feature point in a Cartesian grid model coverage. Refine points for a Cartesian Grid allow changing the cell dimensions when generating the grid. The dialog is reached by selecting a point in a Cartesian grid coverage and selecting the Feature Objects | Attributes command.

Attributes that can be specified for each refine point include:

  • Refine grid in I direction – Has the following option when turn on:
    • Base cell size – Specify the cell I size in the vicinity of the refine point.
    • Refine grid in J direction – Has the following option when turned on:
  • Base cell size – Specify the cell J size in the vicinity of the refine point.

Only refine points located within a grid frame are used when the Map → 2D Grid command is executed. Refine points are not available for all models, since some Cartesian grid models require uniform cell sizes. When the refining is performed, the base size may be changed in order to fit the other restrictions applied to the refining process. If two refine points are too close to each other to allow the cell size to transition, one will be ignored when generating the grid

1D Grid models can also make use of a refine point. For information on this, see GenCade.
