i have to creat TINs for a specific areas so the original points or countours are exactly whithin the geographical limits of the area, but when i generate TIN it goes out of those limits and its normal based on the principle of triangulation but is there anyway to gard the same shape and limits after creating a TIN ? right now im using "paint" to clean the mess so please help me :) thanks


Create a polygon of your area of interest. When you create the TIN use this polygon as Clip Polygon. More information in section "Polygon surface feature types" in ArcGIS help.

    thanks for your answer but this doesnt work on TIN i've tried. but i found the answer on google and i would like to share it with you : Add the TIN and the polygon layer to ArcMap or ArcScene. Select 3D Analyst > Create/Modify TIN > Add Features to TIN. Select the TIN as the Input TIN. Check the polygon layer. Use the following settings for the selected layer: Height source: <None> Triangluate As: hard clip Tag value field: <None> – user16020 Mar 11 '13 at 15:30
