What does the solve button do?

The solve button allows users to solve a site if TestFit didn't automatically solve it.

Solve 2

    •  If a test fit successfully is generated, this will turn green and display available options.
    •  If an unsolved site plan is loaded with enough information to solve, the solve button will become available.
    • Most of the time a test fit will solve on its own, if it cannot solve, then the solve button can be pressed to re-solve the test fit.
    • If it fails to solve, then there was an error in the solver and no solutions can be shown. Adjust any parameter and try again.
    • If no site information is present, clicking the solve button will generate random geometry.
