(How to Order)

These screen shots of tool palettes were captured from an Introductory version of Splash. The current product Splash-Pro provides all these tools plus many more for road and site design. The introductory Splash is no longer available. These screen shots are provided to give a general idea of the organization.

The Splash Main Tool Palette is comprised of tools and sub-palettes.  All Splash tools are fully dockable and resizable.  All Splash tools have tool tips and balloon descriptions.  If the pointer is placed over a Splash tool icon, a description of the tool will appear both over the tool and in the MicroStation status area.


Start Scrolling Dialogs

The main dialog for Splash is the Splash with Ripple-Thru dialog.   This dialog is referred as simply the Splash dialog.  The Splash dialog, seen below, has a menubar and a scrolling text area.  Splash reports into the scrolling text area.  An example of a  report might be a sewer line cut depth takeoff.   This area holds a large amount of text, but if it fills up (memory dependent), the top half is erased and the second half is retained.  The splash dialog may be dismissed at any time without loss of text information.  The Splash dialog may be restarted at any time by selecting the Dialog tool or typing the key-in "SPLASH".













A second Splash dialog is used for wide format reports.  This dialog is referred to as the Splash wide dialog.  If the Splash dialog is already visible, clicking the Dialog tool will start the Splash wide dialog.  The first click starts the Splash dialog.  The second click starts the Splash wide dialog.  Sometimes Splash will automatically start these dialogs.   One example is when the QUESTION MARK tool is used, Splash automatically starts the Splash dialog so the report may be displayed.  Splash will automatically start the Splash wide dialog when a wide report is generated. Examples of wide reports are fieldbook reductions and survey point listings.



Select Alignment

The Tree tool is used to select an alignment to work on.








Survey Points

Used to manage survey points. Used to create, edit, delete, and list survey points.  Used to manage the display of survey points.  Used to connect survey points with MicroStation lines and cells.  Used to coordinate designs.







Triangulate Irregular Network (TIN)

Used to triangulate (make surface from) survey points.  Used to edit triangles and produce contours.








Horizontal Design

Used to create and edit horizontal alignments.  Also used to edit the Splash attributes of alignments.  Used to insert, append and delete P.I.’s (Points of intersection) and assign curves or highway spirals to P.I.’s.







Plan and Profile Panels

Used to create, edit, save and recall profile panels.  Also used to layout plan sheet.








Utility Conflicts

Used to create, delete and list Utility Conflicts.  Utility Conflicts are dynamic inverts in profile where the alignment crosses various existing pipe and box culvert type utilities.








Sewer Design

Used to design Storm and Sanitary sewers and open-ended pipes.








Bearings and Distances

Used to place Bearing and Distance, Tangent and Delta, Arc and Radius, line tables and curve tables on plans.









Used to inquire various Splash engineering information depending upon what is clicked with the pointer.  This is a viewing command.  This means that when the reset button is clicked, MicroStation will return to the previous command.   The Question Mark tool can be used inside any command without interrupting that command.  This tool can report survey point information, stations, offsets, elevations, utility conflicts, sewer pipe depth reports, and more.
