Terrain Items not showing in rendered views

Recommended Posts

Looking for some help with this.  For some reason when I put a driveway and other terrain features in this model they are not showing up on the rendered view.   Any help is greatly appreciated.  Model file is attached.

They are not turned on in the camera layer set.

Thanks for the response.  That was the first thing I checked.  I have those layers turned on in the Camera View Set but still not showing.

Check the height of the driveway, it could be below grade, so you wouldn't see it.

Thanks for the help.  Just figured it out....its always something simple.  I had auto build terrain turned off.  Once I rebuilt the terrain all of the terrain items showed up.  Thanks again.  Mike Dolce

ok , checked your drawing, just re-build your terrain and it shows up.

(edit) I see you beat me to it, glad it works now.

      Hi There,

      I am a current chief architect user and have a question in regards to the contour tool and driveway tool.

      I have a plan that has a sloping site that I am trying to accurately portray in 3d for both client and the Local Council.
      From the road front the site slopes left to right and from the back to front.
      (I have attached Images shown what I currently have)

      My question is there something that I am missing I have also tried in elevation converting/extracting a polyline solid but it doesn't quite work.

      I have attached a link to the 3d viewer but can add a plan if need be.   https://3d-viewer.chiefarchitect.com/go?share=503392208525732

      Hi All,
       
      OK, I give.  No clue why I can't get my driveways to cut through the curb, creating a nice, graduated slope.  Dumb mistake, I'm sure.  Someone show me mercy; hurry.  Please.  :-)

      is anyone aware of a specific catalog, free or otherwise, that contains single, rectangular wall-mounted flood lights?  the default catalog contains two variations of floodlights but they both have a round profile and it won't meet the needs of my presentation.
       
      Thanks

      Does anyone know how to make a driveway that runs up a sloping lot at an angle.  Seems like it should be simple, but I'm racking my brain here and have come up empty with multiple attempts.  You can see what I'm going for in the images below.  The driveway feature just paints a driveway on top of the existing terrain topography, and I can't figure out how to create a slab or a terrain feature that slopes continuously the way you would expect. 
       
      I'm using chief X9, plan file attached.

      Anyone know how to quickly level a driveway widthwise? I have a curved driveway that slopes over the length of it, which is ok, I only want to level it by width. The modifier 'level region(cut/fill)' doesn't work because it levels the entire driveway over length and width. If I do small sections at a time it will look choppy.
       
      Also a separate question. Can I select an area to modify that already exists? like if I click on the entire driveway and want to use that shape to modify instead of clicking a modifier first and having to create a poly line matching an existing shape I have already made? 
      Thanks for any help.
