Curtain Output

Hi guys,

I'm trying to set a Curtain Output through my domain. I understand how the 'datablock.xml' file reads the cell information and I was about to set the curtain manually through the points I want. However, since in the future I might be working in larger domains I think it would be interesting to know if there is a way to do it automatically. Is AEM3D or HydroHub capable of doing this automatic selection and generating the datablock file?

Thanks in advance.

If you open you bathymetry file in HydroHub lite and the edit the bathymetry.  There is a tool for adding a point to a curtain. (3rd from the right on the toolbar).  Select some points along the curtain and then do show all curtain cells (Either right click on the bathymetry or 2nd icon from the right).  HydroHub will then output the points in the format required for a datablock file to the log window.
