MINE PLANNING SOFTWARE FRIDAY - TRIMBLE'S TOP-D!!
When I do work for clients, I like to give them options, not just one answer. It's only with options that you fully understand the flex of the system. Same goes for Mine Design.
Since 2012, I've been doing all my mine design work using Trimble's TOP-D package. The package allows me to do a best fit to a Whittle shell, honour geotechnical slope angles from a csv file, as well as moving ramps around on the fly. I can even design waste dumps as well. To be honest, I'd be lost without it. Have a look at the clip below, just to see how rapidly it works. Enjoy!!
