Terrain/building intersection

Recommended Posts

Hello:

No matter what I do (elevation lines, points, floor defaults, etc.) I can't get the terrain to line up to the top of my stem wall.

(see pic)

What am I doing wrong?

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Upload your plan would help you might have intersecting terrain elevation data or you have just not told the terrain to rebuild after you added the data it’s hard to tell with out the plan file

You need to move the overall elevation distance from the 0'-0" spot. All those terrain lines get the info from the main distance from 0'-0"

Thank you both for your replies.

I'm not at liberty to upload the plan, but my elevation data if very simple (no crossing lines) and the terrain is up-to-date.

I didn't really understand Joey's reply or how to accomplish what he's suggesting.

Again, thank you.

 

P.S. I have a feeling that this is some configuration issue with the building itself, but I don't know what.

Thank you solver... you solved it!

I could've sworn I played with that before, but in any case, this is what controls it.

Do you know what that value is relative to? Is it some average terrain elevation?

Again, thank you.

Read the words that I circled :)

Yeah I read it smart Alec, but the terrain is not all the same elevation.  So I don't know if it means "above terrain average elevation" or "above terrain lowest point" or "above terrain highest point"

If you want a point on the terrain to raise or lower 6", then you adjust the Subfloor Height Above Terrain value by 6".

Have you read the help file?

It is all explained there.
