Retaining wall v. Terrain wall

Recommended Posts

I am working on a hillside project where there are existing retaining walls.
One of the retaining walls steps down with the grade. It starts off at 8' and

drops down to 4' high. The retaining wall drop down 8" every 4'.

 

I tried both the retaining wall and terrain wall. Using the retaining wall I do

see where I can control the height of the wall. It looks line the grade behind the

wall controls the wall height.

 

Using the terrain wall I can control the wall height of the entire length of the wall.

I can not break the wall into 4' long sections where I can give each wall segment

its on wall height.

 

Any suggestions on how to draw a retaining wall that drop down 8" every 4'.

 

Thank You,

 

Mike

Foundation wall manually built and adjusted in elevation view

Don't use a retaining wall - use a Terrain Break and then use an ordinary wall.

Edit the wall heights by breaking it along the top and then dragging in elevation view.

this is what I normally do and then add a Terrain Break on the wall (closer to high side usually not centered) and elevation data/regions either side of the wall.
