    The image you show is normal when using the dual view. If you hold down the Z key you can position the depth plan window to the center of your screen, then use the mouses scroll feature to Zoom in on the screen space. I had the same issue while working on my first setup. Oliver’s Step 4 video is really good but he does not tell you what key he is pressing, to move the image around. It is the z key.

    Excellent. I am glad you got it sorted out. Those two command line switches are very important in most cases.

    I am not a python scripter but, could you not use the getcdw() function? then if it is not your desired path, change the correct path in your script? For my screen capture tool I simply use this for the similar purpose:

    cd /home/arsandtable/Screenshots
    scrot ‘SARndbox-%Y%m%d-%H%M%S.png’
    cd /home/arsandtable/src/SARndbox-3.2

    this way I always get my screenshots where I want them.

    When you launch the the application, the shortcut (link) on the desktop points to the application’s folder, in this case /home/arsandtable/scr/SARnbox-3.2/bin/

    So what if you made a script (startApp) in your script folder, StartApp calls the application, (which should keep your scripts folder as the active one) then check then use getcdw() to report the result. If it is still the script folder then you should be okay correct?

    Alucard, Video card is key. I repeat that i had no issues following the Complete Installation guide with my Linux Mint. I am able to launch the application in my Thinkpad T530 (core i5, 8 gigs ram and built in video card) but the application is not usable in any sense of the word. I just use the setup for my scripting practices. The Application launches okay without any colour mapping, but it never actually completes any topographical map changes. Way to slow . Also when I try to make it rain…. nothing happens. It can’t handle the load. Do you get an error when you try to launch the application? What errors are you getting? what switches are you using?

    My best guess is that, because the active application is launched from the ~/src/SARndbox2.3 folder that is where the files are written. Could you either:

    • make a script file that changes the active folder to what you want, then call BathymetrySaver function, then change back to the working one
    • Create a launcher script to change directory first, then run the sandbox app from that new folder with an absolute directory reference

    RodgerHall, would you be willing to post some images or plans for your table setup?

    I am assuming your event has passed. Did you end up making a table for it?

    I think the site beldingschools mentions has its data from different sources. The first video comes from a commercial product iSandBox (England) and the rest of the images comes from this forum I think.

    Use the -uhm parameter when launching our application. for example: ./bin/SARndbox-3.2/SARndbox -uhm

    Ryan Reynolds has a google folder to share. His topic is here. I would imaging emailing him would give you access to the folder then you/he can upload the files.

    Cool stuff with the sand texture for sure. Oliver suggested using Sandtastik white sand then using .25 L of water per 98 Kgs (i think) of sane to allow the Sandtastik sand to hold it shape better.

    Here is a fairly basic one that you can disassemble and reassemble fairly easily.

    Hi liudr, The GlobalWaterTool is used to make the whole table fill with water. The LocalWaterTool can be used to add water where the mouse pointer is. The rate is adjustable at the time of starting the application, but I do not believe it can be changed once you are in it. The command line switches you need use to adjust the speed of rain fall/evaporation are located here: https://arsandbox.ucdavis.edu/forums/topic/sandbox-command-line-switch-list/

    Agreed. I would be willing to help out in that respect if needed.
