Terrain

Recommended Posts

I thought I would try terrain again in X8 - and having a very tough go at it.

 

What I dont understand is why when you place terrain elevation lines CA doesn't simply connect the terrain between those lines (keeping them the same location and elevation) but rather uses them as a "suggestion" and then crafts its own terrain model in a (often) very sloppy way.

 

Is there a way to have terrain lines be actual lines used for precise terrain?  Perhaps I am missing a key point to this.  I've attached the file I am working on - also attached are pictures of Sketch-up terrain and how each line represents the actual elevation point on the terrain.

 

Thanks for any help.

Johnny,

Without looking at your plan...

My quick answer is to use Linear for Terrain Surface Smoothing. 

 

I will look at your plan now...

or give me a Skype call if you want to talk.
