SVDESIGNER™ is a powerful new 3D conceptual modeler and visualization tool for the geotechnical and hydrogeological fields.  One of the most difficult aspects of designing three-dimensional models is the manipulation of three-dimensional geometry. Whether it is the representation of complex geo-strata or the representation of geotechnical designs such as roads, embankments, or tailing dams – such structures are often most suited for three-dimensional analysis but are difficult to describe to the computer. SVDESIGNER™ is a three-dimensional conceptual design tool for geotechnical engineers. It can import three-dimensional geometry in most standard formats such as AutoCAD DXF files.

Geo-strata can be imported based on borehole data or in a number of different formats. Once in the software, the surfaces can be represented as grids or as triangulated surfaces (TINs).

There are also advanced features in the software to handle intersections of various surfaces so the 3D geometry can be represented accurately.

Key features and enhancements of SVDESIGNER:

  • Easy to Use: Featuring a familiar user interface with easy to understand icons and functions. The software tools behave exactly how you would expect with a short learning curve. You will be able to start modeling right away.
  • Representation of Complex 3D Surfaces: 3D surfaces can be imported from a variety of formats and represented as grids or triangulated surfaces consisting of hundreds of thousands of individual elements.
  • Supported Import File Types:
    • SVOFFICE™5 and SVOFFICE™2009
    • OBJ
    • 3DS
    • DAT (TecPlot format used by AcuMesh)
    • Plain ASCII
    • DEM
    • DTM
    • DXF (AutoCAD)
    • ESRI grid
  • Surface Intersections: Intersections of complex surfaces represented as grids or as TINs can be accomplished.
  • Generate Depositional Surfaces: Generate a set of slurried depositional surfaces for a user-defined filling scenario
  • Filling Curves: Compute elevation versus volume as a graph
  • Surface Cuts / Excavations: Cuts into topography can be easily performed as per the design of a road cut into the side of a hill. Mining cuts such as with open pits can also be represented.
  • Geometry Editing: A rich variety of functionality is implemented in the software to allow editing of existing geometry to represent the integration of new geotechnical designs with existing topology. Editing features integrate with both surface grids and meshes.
  • Construction Sequences: Sequences of layers or lifts of material as placed in earth dams or in mining operations can be easily represented in the 3D conceptual model.
  • Volume Calculations: Volumes of material can be calculated to aid in construction activities.
  • Export to Numerical Modeling Modules: 2D or 3D representations of particular geometry scenarios can be exported to any of the SVOFFICE™5 numerical modeling modules for analysis. Exported models can utilize grids or triangulated meshes.
  • Stunning Client Visuals: 3D conceptual designs can be captured for display to clients and review of potential designs. Image draping of aerial site photos is supported. Fly-bys of sites can be created and exported as animations.
  • Extensive QAQC program
  • World Class Support: Highly dedicated team with tracking and fast response to raised issues - typically within 24 - 48 hours
