  1. Increase Cut or Fill Depth

    We have faced one issue where i hope you could help us in future. When forming the fields and filling up the ponds it is almost always they come back after a few passes and some rain or winter. Could you add to optisurface such a feature that it would be possible to determine the amendment % for ponds being filled. For example so that if we fill 10 cm then it would be actually 12 cm for those places. Typically when we cut there is though bottom soil on those places and they dont go anywhere, but next to…

  2. Draw Circle Tool

    We work a lot with Centre Pivots and it wold be helpful to have a tool to draw the boundary perfectly round for the field. Some clients also want the road around the field cut lower, so it would help to be able to offset (create) a breakline from a boundary.

    Hi Stephan.

    Thanks for the feedback. In OSDv2, there is an option to draw lines and polygons, including circles or ellipse.

    Go to the left hand side to Project Explorer > Miscellaneous > right click Drawings > Add/Edit > use the toolbars under the Menus to draw. You can edit a drawing by selecting then right click to see the options.

    I usually use the 3pt Circle as a guide for the boundary of a pivot.

    After drawing the circle, right click for more options and select Convert to Zone then select Boundary.

    For the create breakline from a boundary, we’re looking into it and may be included in V2.6 or later.

  3. Beep sound option when calculation is done

    Sometimes I open other windows while OS is performing a calculation. It would be nice to ear a sound that warn us when calculation is complete.

  4. Move to top and bottom button

    It would save me a couple clicks when I have many zones in a field if there was a button to move a zone directly to the top of the list and another one that would move it directly to the bottom.

    Thanks

  5. It would be good if I could print the contour maps so they fill the 8 1/2" X 11" page. Version 2.3.14

    It would be good if I could print the contour maps so they fill the 8 1/2" X 11" page. I use Version 2.3.14. If it's in there, I haven't found it.

    Hi Roger,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    You can actually print the contour maps, or any map in that matter using the Print toolbar. You can also go to File Menu > Print for this action.

    Don’t forget to look into our Online Manual in the knowledgebase. See the links below:

    Let me know how it works out for you.

  6. Drainage Analysis Map on Design Report

    Is there a way to have a formal report for the Ponding Map, including the Drainage Results Summary like statistics and ponding cost?

  7. Design zone priorities

    Why, when we create a second design zone, it shows up under the first zone we created in the priority list. If it would work the other way, we wouldn't have to move up the zone every time we create one on top of another one.

    Thanks!

  8. It would be nice to have a feature to calculate area size in the field

    A little feature to draw a polygon in the field and see the size of it would be handy sometimes. Or just show the zone sizes when we create a new one.

    Thanks!

  9. An ''edit mode'' for the existing topography

    It would be nice to have an edit mode so we can select all the undesirable pts and then click ok to retriangulate. Now we have to do it pt by pt and it retriangulate on every single pt so it makes the process a lot longer.

    I generally don't have to do this but I received some topos with some bugs in them so a bunch of points aren't valid.

    Thanks!

  10. Using Benchmarks while Building the Design

    I am accustomed to using benchmarks, that I place during the survey, while I am building the design. It would be helpful to be able to see the benchmarks while in the proposed Topo.
