  1. Tom W...you should really consider becoming a teacher when not doing your main work......you are way better at this than I. ūüôā
  2. Tom W.....you got me there....that is above my pay grade. :-) Maybe.....I just offered up my solution based upon what I thought would be fairly painless, and still have a modicum of dignity! :-)
  3. Yeah, main thing is that you need to use tapered extrude...not just a regular extrude. I think you get that. Actually it worked quite elegantly....pretty simple.
  4. @Landartma ok....is this what you were hoping to do? cutting to the chase.... 1) I believe the tool to use is Tapered Extrude... for several reasons. It is all one object ! That stone wall is battered, which by using Tapered Extrude, you can easily tweak the angle of the batter, etc, as well as the height. 2) I tweaked your site model a bit to better show how that battered wall will work, so don't panic :-) You do have some site model conflicts, but that is not part of this drill :-) A few other anomalies exist as well. Not important now. 3) The other thing that makes this possible is the use 'pad with retaining edge'. That is how I got the terrain behind the battered wall to sit just below the back of the battered wall, but on the front side the grade drops down. I can't get into all the subtleties at the moment. I also used 'pad with retaining edge' to pull the grade up against your foundation. I can upload the file if you wish, but some of what I did may be Greek to you. I left the other site model you had in the file as is, as you can see from the screenshot. No worries regarding any of this, but just know you will owe me for the rest of your life. :-)
  5. Also...you had some duplicity/redundancy with your stake objects....they were shown twice....once in the source data and then again, on their own, outside the site model.
  6. Ok....thanks. I am attempting to fix this up for you...somewhat....and explain what I did. I have a few other fish to fry, but I will get back to you.
  7. @Landartma By 'fit to wal' you mean the grade will be at the top of the wall??
  8. @Landartma HAHAHAHA.....Just totally ignore Jeff P....he is a bit of a curmudgeon...and wise-ass. :-)
  9. I think you may be holding on too tight to thinking you need to use a site modifier for those walls....you do not...at all. So....what is a good battered angle to use? and how wide at the top of the wall? You have no textures on any objects at the moment, which is no biggie, but is the battered walls stone....stucco.....cotton candy ? :-)
  10. ok, got it....no worries there. what about responding to my other questions? Mainly so I can wrap my ancient brain around what you think a Landscape Wall should look like?
  11. Ok...file came in fine. there are several things that need addressing, but aside from that.... 1) There are two site models ?? What is up with that? 2) is your issue with the meandering wall with round segments at the north /top of the the drawing? It bothers you because it is not just one continuous wall ? Why would it really matter that there are individual round sections in the wall? 3) what do you mean when you say "The walls I see out there are ok but they look like foundation walls not landscape walls". What is your concept of a 'landscape wall'? You have a photo or image of how you think they should appear? That would help.
  12. Yeah, just go to the 'file export' command and choose 2020.
  13. @Landartma also.....since the file is the size it is....good idea to compress or zip the file which will keep the file size wayyyy down.
  14. @Landartma It is good practice when you post to note what version of VW you are using. I imagine you are using VW 2021? I am currently using VW 2020 and could not open the file. I am happy to take a look at the tile, but you would need to export it back to 2020. Still not totally clear on what it is exactly you ae attempting. , or what exactly is not working for you. Your file will speak volumes :-)
  15. @Kevin Allen ....and she/he didn't even thank you! :-(
