Split command can be used to split a trajectory into smaller parts. This is useful for some tools that require that one trajectory does not contain turnarounds and overlaps itself.
To split a trajectory:
1. Select Split command from the Tools pulldown menu.
If the mouse pointer is moved inside a CAD file view, the closest trajectory is highlighted.
2. Identify the trajectory to split with a data click.
A red cross shows dynamically the split location.
3. Define the position at which to split the trajectory with a data click.
This cuts the trajectory at the given position. The application deletes the old trajectory file and creates two new files in the active trajectory directory.
There are automatic ways to split a trajectory in TerraScan. See the TerraScan User Guide for more information.
