Terrain Perimeter lengths

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any idea how to make the Terrain perimeter lengths into decimal form and not feet and inches?

Is there any way to have the display type vary from CAD objects?  If I wanted the terrain to show a certain dimension type can I then have a "box" show another way?...or is it one or other for entire plan?

It's worth remembering that you can easily add a dimension for a line with no extensions, and put it on a layer with a white color, in any newly created dimension style you want (the dimension text should be defined as black, though, for the style; if "by layer" it will turn white and disappear), and even add the bearing as leading text. When you stretch the line, the dimension will change accurately, although the bearing, which is just text, won't. But this will let you have as many dimension styles in a single view as you want, and you can mix and match text sizes, number of decimal points, etc.

      Hi There,

      I am a current chief architect user and have a question in regards to the contour tool and driveway tool.

      I have a plan that has a sloping site that I am trying to accurately portray in 3d for both client and the Local Council.
      From the road front the site slopes left to right and from the back to front.
      (I have attached Images shown what I currently have)

      My question is there something that I am missing I have also tried in elevation converting/extracting a polyline solid but it doesn't quite work.

      I have attached a link to the 3d viewer but can add a plan if need be.   https://3d-viewer.chiefarchitect.com/go?share=503392208525732

      I am trying to create a sunken patio in sloping terrain. The problem I am having is getting a smooth drop in the grade of the lot without distorting the patio which needs to remain flat. The attached sample file shows what I am trying to achieve with the grey circle representing the area where he patio will be. I tried to subtract this area from the terrain perimeter but found that I cannot subtract and object from terrain like I can with a polyline solid. I've been back and fourth with tech support but so far they have not been able to find a solution.
      Any ideas?
