Net edit is an option in the editor that allows users to add, remove or replace Net Lines for networks using special drawing tools. These drawing tools are different from the usual selection drawing tools (brush).

The Net Edit panel


Before you can edit a network, you must activate a particular one or more networks. This is done using the Network specific settings.

You are also required to select a Net Function, which will be used to add Net Lines with.

Draw modes

  • Add
    • Add a Net Line consecutively by adding net nodes and connecting the newest node with the previous one by adding a net line between them. Click on the same spot to stop the consecutive adding and to start somewhere else.
    • Inserting a node into an existing Net Line is also possible. Snap distance is controller using the Merge distance (m) value.
    • Connect via roads will create a path from start to end using the road system.
  • Remove
    • Select a net line to remove, highlighted in red. With the option repeated selected, more net lines will removed until a net node is encountered that is connected to more than one other net line.
  • Move
    • Move existing Net Nodes and potentially merge them with other Net Nodes or split existing Net Lines.

Draw options

There are some additional draw options for editing networks.

Connect via roads

This option is used when in the Add draw mode. It will add multiple Net Lines following the road to connect the start and end point when adding Net Nodes.


This option is used when removing Net Lines or Net Nodes. The original Net item will always be removed, but additional Net Nodes can be removed as well, as long as those Net Nodes are only connected to one Net Line.


Whether or not added Net Nodes should be merged with existing Net Nodes and Net Lines. You can adjust the merge distance using the corresponding value field.

Show Buildings

This option simply lets you turn off the visualization of Buildings in the 3D Visualization.

Node Depth

It is possible to adjust the depth at which the Net Nodes will be added.
