Tutorial 4 - Sub-Zones 


Detect3D Fire and Gas Mapping Sub-Zones


Detect3D allows users to add several zones in one project. Each zone can be further divided into multiple sub-zone regions.


A sub-zone is a smaller zone region defined within a larger parent zone with its own risk grade and coverage statistics. In Detect3D coverage statistics are calculated for each zone type and risk grade. A special type of sub-zone called a Null Zone can also be defined to remove volumes deemed not needed in the coverage analysis. 


Briefly mentioned in earlier tutorials, each zone and sub-zone in Detect3D has a risk grade associated with it. These risk grades can be edited to facilitate difference performance standards. For a more detailed explanation on Risk Grades, please refer to Tutorial 5.


In this tutorial you will learn how to:

  • Add a sub-zone to a project

  • Add a null-zone to a project

  • Use the equipment selection tool

  • Importing flame detectors from excel

  • View coverage results based on defined sub-zones and assigned risk grades


Files used in this tutorial:


The geometry for this tutorial is located in the tutorials folder of the Detect3D directory (usually C:\Program Files\Detect3D\Tutorials depending on the folder chosen during installation). Alternatively, you can load the "Complex Module (.obj)" by selecting it from the Load Sample Geometries option in the Help Menu.
