37. AUTOMATICALLY CREATING 'ONE VALVE PER LATERAL' BLOCKS

Post by jovivier »

Sometimes you may have the situation where each lateral in a block operates on its own valve.

Here is an easy way to draw the layout:-

1. Draw the entire block as one item using Spray Irrigation Block or Tape Irrigation Block as required.

2. Select the block (Alt + Select Object on a block entity or Select Object on the Area lasso around the block).

3. Select Tools|Subdivide.

4. Under Slices enter the "Number of Rows" as 1 and the "Gap" as 0.

5. Under Cuts select "None".

6. Accept the preview - it should show only 1 lateral in each subdivision.

The block is re-drawn with only one lateral in each subdivision with its own valve.
