I'm trying to replicate a window sill I have on a model in SketchUp. I can import a .SKP file and convert it to a 3D symbol just fine, but then in elevation views, CA wants to show these CAD lines every couple inches for some reason. The 3D view looks just fine, but I do need to be able to create elevation views as well. Is there some checkbox I could toggle and solve this issue?
I have imported the loading doc roof I did in sketch up the, the structure is 3852" wide . Chief imports the correct size, but then when i try to move it up to the correct height chief shrinks the imported roof structure to 3000". I did not find any limits on imports on the docs or help.
Anyone ells had this problem?

I imported a Import a surveyor DWG file. I followed the instruction in the tutorial (Import a Surveyor DWG file for a Site Plan or Terrain Perimeter (chiefarchitect.com) . And got some strange spikes hills. I have tired cleaning up the elevation data but no luck. There is simply no elevation data in the area that is that tall, not sure what is generate this. Pleas see the attached pic and surveyor map.
Fellow More-experienced CA users,
I have drawn as-built plans of a house for a renovation/addition project in CA v.12. I recently received the final survey from the surveyor with property lines, major and minor contours, the building footprint, and other typical survey information. I imported it from .dwg as a .plan file with layers for terrain perimeter and terrain, and converted the terrain using the convert tool to make it 3D. It shows up with terrain. Yay! Now I'm not sure of the next steps:
1. How do I bring the terrain into the building.plan?
2. How do I set it in place - using a Place Point or Point Marker at a corner of the house?
3. The survey elevations are in the 650' range so how what do I do to place the terrain relative to my house (1st floor 0.0)? This house has a walk out basement, if that matters.
4. I copied in a 2D version of the survey to use in plan view (on layer CAD, AS-BUILT SURVEY). When I send it to layout, the house floor plans are obscured and the secondary contours didn't come in - admittedly, this is a previous version of my survey attempt and I've since remapped the survey layers.
I have also attached the house plan, if that helps.
Thanks for recommendations from this group, as I've watched numerous videos and couldn't find any that addressed this process.
