In Cableizer, spacings can now be provided either as clearance between two objects, or as their center to center distance. Laying depths can be either provided to the top, center, or bottom of an object.
Different projects use different ways of specifying the spacings and laying depths between different objects, such as cables, heat sources, backfills, etc. In Cableizer you can now change the input settings for spacings and laying depths in order to be conform with the provided project measures. In such a way, you don't have to recalculate the figures depending on the dimensions of your objects and can avoid mistakes when setting up your projects.
Spacing inputs are used for projects in air, in soil, in tunnels, in troughs, or subsea. By clicking on the blue cogwheel besides a spacing input, you can choose your input preferences:
Laying depth inputs are used for projects in soil, in tunnels, in troughs, or subsea. In tunnels, the depth is defined with reference to the tunnel center, while for troughs and subsea the depth is defined with reference to the trough bottom and the seabed respectively. By clicking on the blue cogwheel besides a position input, you can choose your input preferences:
This feature has been implemented on a user request. We put a lot of effort into the development of Cableizer to make it a tool that is intuitive and user friendly. If you have any ideas for improvements, we would as always be glad to hear from you.
