The Shot Plan tool lets the user design and plan blast with precision. User can locate and place the drilled holes with precision, obtain reports and analyze drill patterns.
Strayos's Shot Planning tool allows the user to reproduce, share and redesign all the work without much effort.
Follow the steps as shown below to create a new Shot Plan.
STEP 1 : Shot plan pattern setup
Start by clicking on Shotplan in left panel of your dashboard.
After 3D model is finished loading, you will see options to start your shotplan design.
New shotplan : Allows you to create your own pattern design.
Upload Hole Data: If you already have X,Y,Z of your hole data then you can upload that as CSV file and the holes will be automatically placed in the map.
Below video shows to enter burden, spacing, elevation and sub-drill information once you are done drawing AB line in map.
Make sure the red arrow marked on the AB Line indicating the blast direction is oriented towards the bench face. If it's in the opposite direction, use the Flip shot button on top on the shotplan editor to rotate it.
You can select your desired toe elevation by moving your mouse in 3D model and visually looking the exact location. Double click in 3D model to finalize the toe elevation.
Once you Click "Done" ..your shotplan will be setup and holes and rows will appear in the map.
Important Note: There must be atleast one AB line to run the burden calculation. AB Line sets the azimuth of the shot design measured from the true north. Hence setting the right blast direction is important. Since any new rows will be added behind the AB Line and away from the blast direction user should make sure that the red arrow marked on the AB Line is oriented correctly.
You can further customize your shot pattern by clicking on holes/rows and going to Properties tab.
You can also move holes to a desired spot just dragging and dropping it
You can quickly see the hole profile and hole volume of the selected hole on the right side of screen.
When you move the holes, the hole profile also gets updated with the new position info.
You can move the the entire pattern and row using your mouse or entering set distance.
Before you run the burden calculation Strayos provides several options if you wish to include in the reports
You can edit the toe elevation and subdrill info from below screen as well.
STEP 2 : Calculate Burden
Below video is walk-through of burden calculation
You can visualize critical burden area in the entire bench face by enabling color coded burden visualization.
Visualize row wise burden volume
Set Burden threshold for reporting
