I'm in 2011 version. I 'm trying to crop a LiDar surface. However, the wizard came out without the source surfaces listed in the panel. I also tired to pick a surface in the drawing and I was allowed to pick surfaces, but nothing happened after I hit enter.
Solved! Go to Solution.
What if you simplify the surface before cropping? Does that allow you to select it? It might be that there are too many points.
Credit where credit is due! Give kudos or accept as solution whenever you can.
You appear to have Grid surfaces created from a DEM file. Grid surfaces do not support all of the surface editing operations that TIN surfaces do. Search for "Surface Editing Operations" in the help file and you can see which are supported.
I would imagine that you are having the same problem when trying to crop your surfaces - that operation is not supported for Grid surfaces (couldn't verify this).
You can create TIN surfaces instead of Grid surfaces from DEM files and that might have to be your answer to do what you're looking for.
Thanks, Joel; You have answered my question and I acturally refreshed the concept of grid surface and tin surface once again.
I'm new on the project. I didn't know why the surface initially created in grid.
Thanks, for the help.
