help with terrain, please!

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am trying to create a multiple level terrain, but it is not working. Please, help if you know what to do and please tell me what I am doing wrong. What am I missing here?1856 Glenmorrie Ter Plans (1).pdf I attached the elevation plan, and you can see that the terrain is 45degrees higher, which is where I am having trouble getting it right. I would really appreciate if someone can help me out. Thanks in advance!

You need to keep elevation data simple never put elevation data on top of other elevation and its a good idea to change the elevation data layer color to blue or other that stands out in floor plan view  open the attached plan see if it give you some clues

I did not read your post right I thought you were asking for it to be done, just raise the top elevation region might get you moving in the right direction

I don't like typing so no can't give details of every step,

but do often help people with specific problems and that is a good way of learning by screen sharing look and play with that model it will need a bit of correcting probably and there free training on youtube and chief has some good videos

Terrain, roofing and arched ceilings are my weakness

 

You would not be the only one they are hard for most when learning

Not sure chief can have trouble with things like that you could try lowering terrain smoothing or check your elevation data 

if you like post your plan and I can look and try to spot what is doing it

Nicely done Video Mark , you may want to consider putting it in the Tips Forum for General Terrain help for others new to doing Terrains.

 

And to the OP......It is generally accepted you put your Terrain Perimter on Level 1 , so calculating heights is easier.

It is quite often where the terrain is "folding" down behind the retaining Wall , adjusting or even adding a Terrain Break and playing with it can help to hide the fold's "edge" inside the retaining wall.

I tend to use Foundation walls and add my own Terrain Break ...walls are then edited in elevation for heights etc , as it is rare for a Retaining Wall to follow the ground level exactly at least locally , most R.Walls have a coping stone that is level too. ( convert wall to solid railing and use Wall Cap )

I put in all the measurements, and this is what happened. The client wanted a smaller deck, so I changed the size as well, and he wanted a straight staircase. Mark, maybe you know the where exactly the problem is. Would really appreciate it! Thanks so much!
