Displaying Original Terrain and modified terrain

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am designing a cottage on a lot that has been stripped of all its trees and topsoil. I have a plan to place the cottage and bring in fill to modify the terrain to me our needs.  I have taken numerous elevations on the lot and can do a terrain plan with the existing elevations, but I would like to be able to display both the existing terrain and the modified terrain.  Is this possible?

If you are wanting to see this in 3D then you can create a symbol of the original terrain and then in a new plan file edit your existing terrain data to reflect the new elevations.  If it is just 2D that you need create a cad detail from view of the existing contours and place that on a dedicated layer so it can be turned on and off as required.

There can be only one terrain.  You could do it with two separate plans.
