Updated February 12, 2019

This article applies to:
  • RoadEng Civil
  • RoadEng Forestry
  • Softree Optimal

With today's increasing use of LiDAR, the maximum number of topographic section points in a cross section is sometimes exceeded.

Follow the below steps to modify your default maximum section points:

  • Open the Terrain Module (just the software, not a project file)
  • Go to the Setup tab |Module setup | install | then press the explore button
  • This will open a file explorer window, find softree.ini
  • Right-click on softree.ini and select “Open with” , choose note pad
  • Search within note pad for “MaxSectionPoints
  • The default is set to MaxSectionPoints=2048.Change the number to “10000
  • Save softree.ini. Close.
  • Close Terrain and re-open.
Adjusting to 10,000 will solve most large model problems.
