Triangle Parameters This dialog box allow you to set the way triangles will be generated and displayed.

Max Triangle Length
Determines the maximum triangle size allowed in the job. Any triangle with a side larger than this value will not be formed. This helps to stop unwanted long triangles forming down the side of the job. You should enter a value about 2-3 times the average spacing between lots.

If the length is left blank, triangles of any length will be allowed.



Ignore discon segments with non-contourable points.
Normally, a non contourable point on a discon will cause an error, tick this box to ignore the discon line segments affected.

This can mask errors on points. e.g Non-contourable Points on discons. A point could ne non-contourable because it was incorrectly coded, or a Geom(XY) point may have been incorrectlyt joined into the Discon. These errors should really be fixed, you should do a triangle formation without a boundary first to fix these types of errors.
Discon segments include Discons, No-Contour areas, boundaries or other strings marked as Discons

Use Point-Discon Distance
Tick this box to enable the minimum point discon test during triangle formation.

Minimum Point-Discon Distance
Points close to a discon line may have been missed. Points closer than this distance to a discon line will be flagged as errors. If you dont want to worry about this issue use a small tolerance value, like the default value = 0.010m.

Ignore discon segments outside boundary
Normally, a discon outside the boundary will cause an error, tick this box to ignore the discon line segments affected. This also applies to no-contour areas.
