Input Hopper Walls
Place both the Plan View at RL +2.400 and the Plan View at RL 0.000 on the screen either side by sideor one above the other and put the 3d view into the top left corner of the screen.Using the
macro pick the intersection of Grids A-1 then A-4 in the Plan view at RL+2.400. Then pick the intersection of Grids B-3 then B-2 in the plan view at RL 0.000. Now complete thehopper wall by picking the intersection of Grids A-1 again in the Plan View at RL +2.400.Repeat this procedure for the other three walls.Zoom into the intersection of Grids D-1 in the plan view at RL +2.400 and note that the walls are basedabout their "middle" and therefore overlap. Double click on one of the walls (you may need to doubleclick on them in the 3d view if you keep getting the Chamfer Properties dialogue box) and modify their Position in Depth value from "middle" to behind.Repeat this for the other three walls.
Some of the hopper walls may be missing from some of the views. This is because of the size of the plates. You will need to increase the depth of each of your plan and elevation views from 500 up &down to about 3000 up and down.
If you want to use prefix FLT instead of PL or PLT in plate profiles you can add an extra FLT line(similar to PLT line) to file ..\countries\???\profil\profitab.inp where ??? is the country environment (e.g.euro, uk, usimp, aus):
FLT ! B ! +2 ! ! 1 ! 2 ! ! !
