Creating contours

Postby abacuspros » Thu Jun 22, 2006 11:03 am

Could someone give me the basics on creating contours please? I tried and tried to find somethin in the help section but came up empty. I'm using MSCAD 2004.

Thanks in advance!

There is actualy a tutorial and several training movies in the help file to walk you though the steps.

Pick on the Help menu -> Help. Make sure you pick on the Contents tab in the top left - then go to the last entry in the contents. Pick on the "Data Collector Tutorial" and take a look at the general steps. Keep in mind that some things shown may not be required with the data set you are using.

If you wish to watch the movies, again go to the help menu -> Help. On the right side, under the movies section, pick on the green link to go to the movies. Then scroll down to the Contour movies.

Creating contours

Glen,

Thanks for the quick response!

I attempted to watch the movies on contouring just now and was told that the links are broken.

The data is already out of the collector and is now in the drawing file, ready to go. I did find some more things in the help file and created a boundary for the area I want to contour. Now, I just need to figure out how to get the program to put the lines in.

Thanks again.
