The Options window shows configuration values for the current open project, or the global defaults if no projects are open.

Note: Many Site3D project settings can be set in a more user friendly way from specific property windows, for example the Project Options Window and the Section View Display Properties Window.

To access the Options window click the Tools->Options... menu option.

Configuration Options

Project or Global settings

Choose from the drop-down menu whether to edit settings for a particular project, or your global settings. If you have one or more projects open, you can choose which one to edit the configuration for.

The Global settings are the default settings that will be used the next time a new project is created. Changing the global settings will generally have no affect on an existing project.

Enterprise settings

Your entire organisation can use a single configuration file so that you all use the same settings.

To achieve this is quite straight forward; one user configures their global settings the way that is wanted for the whole organisation, then their configuration file is copied to a shared folder that everyone can access (for instance, on a network drive).

Here is the step-by-step process to do it:

To utilise the enterprise configuration, each user need only set the one global EnterpriseOptionsPath setting, like this:

Updating the Enterprise settings

If you subsequently want to update the enterprise configuration, you would need to first copy the Site3D-enterprise.ini file back to the Site3D-user.ini in the %appdata%\Site3D folder for the user. This must be done when Site3D is not open. Then simply do the above procedure again, updating the settings as desired, and copying back to the Site3D-enterprise.ini file in the shared folder.

Configuration

On the left of the window is a list containing all the settings that can be altered.

Selecting an item from this list will display a description of the selected setting, shown in a box to the right. Under the description the current value is displayed, this can be set as appropriate for your usage.

Here is the complete list of the currently configurable settings:

Notes:

The default values in the above table are displayed in metric units. When viewed in Site3D, the values will be shown converted using the current display units setting. Additionally, for values that are displayed with a unit, you can type a value followed by any supported unit.

1 When running Site3D for the first time the country picker window should appear. This will override the default values with the appropriate country specific defaults where possible.

2 The sewers standard name must match one of the following:

3 The ordering of longsection table rows is defined by a comma separated list of pre-defined Row ID names. Every Row ID name should be included in the list and not appear multiple times. Below is a list of the Row ID names:
