Terrain Elevations And Specifications

Recommended Posts

I want to show correct terrain for my house. The Garage is floating in space and there is a moat around the front of the house. Also the drive ends about 2' lower than the garage. How do I bring my terrain so it is at the level of the floor of the garage, the gap is gone, the drive comes to the mouth of the garage floor, and I get rid of the moat around the front? This are all related questions and I think there is one solution. The sub floor of the house is 162', the garage is 160', 2' lower. any advice out there?

Thanks for attaching the plan.  I think the problem now is that no one really knows what your terrain is actually supposed to look like and therefore we don't know the best advice to give in order to fix it.  I tend to think the elevation data is incorrect and needs adjusting.  One thing you can do to address at least part of your problem though is to uncheck and then check "Flatten Pad".  You can also try to insert some terrain modifiers like Lowered Regions or Flat Regions.

      I know this has been talked about before but I can not find it and I can't figure out how to do it again.
      I have a house drawing and I have the terrain drawn and I would like to orient the house differently on the terrain. I want to keep my house drawing square with my plan so it would need to be the terrain itself that has to rotate. I can rotate the terrain perimeter but that doesn't rotate the elevation lines etc. When I select the perimeter and all the elevation lines, i am not able to rotate the whole thing.

      I accidentally deleted the floor surface from my layout of a building. It appears that the top floor surface is missing leaving the subfloor. I don't know how to add a new floor surface to the subfloor (walls are built and floor plan is otherwise complete).

      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.

      I am trying to create a sunken patio in sloping terrain. The problem I am having is getting a smooth drop in the grade of the lot without distorting the patio which needs to remain flat. The attached sample file shows what I am trying to achieve with the grey circle representing the area where he patio will be. I tried to subtract this area from the terrain perimeter but found that I cannot subtract and object from terrain like I can with a polyline solid. I've been back and fourth with tech support but so far they have not been able to find a solution.
      Any ideas?
