Creating a detailed longitudinal section for a Drift

I graduated from the University of Sonora with a bachelor’s degree in mining engineering, with a strong background in mining software and open pit operations. I work at Promine as an Account Executive, reaching out to clients, giving demos, training and webinars, suggesting new updates and improvements, participating in marketing activities and more. I aspire to be part of the change in perception for the mining industry, since I believe it can work with the environment and society in a sustainable manner. Also, to help innovate in this leading industry. On my free time I enjoy going on a walk or run with my dog, spending time with my family, catching up with friends, read an autobiography or fiction, do environmental community work. “If it can’t be grown, it has to be mined.”
Inside the Drift design module, we have many commands to create drifts, annotate them, create schedules, add ramps and many more tools. We also have a complete set of commands for creating longitudinal sections across drifts, ramps, cross sections or any other type of development that has a centerline. We have the option to create this section automatically or configure it manually and to add stations, points and project surrounding developments. This helps us get a better understanding of our developments with using a few commands and displaying the information with a few clicks.
