  1. @Robert DRobert, based on what you posted this is exactly how this would work. If you could PM me your file I could take a look and get back to you with a solution.
  2. @jmccain8 Can you get the dwg of the same file? This would eliminate all of this PDF cropping process.

    There really isn't a need to edit the contours inside the DTM. With proper application of site modifiers, all can be achieved externally. This way there is no interaction between the DTM contour modifiers and the external modifiers.
  4. By design the Landscape area has the pen and fill linked.

    Try to stick with site modifiers to modify the contours.
  6. Yes Data Tag All the way! It has so much more power and be designed to your graphic needs.
  7. When selecting the worksheet (two clicks) the database header under image needs to be changed. Select the grey header in that column and select the little box to the right. Here change the top selector to function and the second selector to image. This should fix it. I am not quite sure why this was changed but this will get it back to where you need it.
  8. I tested this on my side and cannot repeat this. Could you share a file where this is happening? Or you could PM it to me also. I would like to take a look at what you have going on
  9. @BGD First let me just say that your name trips me out every time I get a notice. My initials are BDG! ūüôā Answers for above! 1) first turn off KLC Site plan it is covering the hardscape. Second, with the "Hardscape Decking Const" style edit the deck boards component and change the Texture from Class texture too Texture. 2)This is because you have the opacity to 0% change it to 100% and they will show. Or if you want some opacity change it there. 3)Select the site wall and in the Render tab in the OIP change where it says none in the texture picker to Class Texture 4)My suggestion is to learn Data Tags. These will allow you to set any graphic style you like. 5)I believe this is answered above. 6)Use Roof Face to create the desired short roof, and use fit walls to objects to fit the walls to the roof.
  10. @jpccrodrigues yes this process can work but requires much more time and more clicks. By simply simplifying the poly (Modify>drafting aids>simplify polys) you achieve the same result with a measured affect that can easily be modified from there. and @elch I would second @Rossford remarks. Let us know. and if you would like feel free to PM me the file. I can take a look and send back.
  11. If you need to move the geo image just click and hold using the Geo locate tool and move to the desired location
  12. Vectorworks creates a TIN for the model so if you are referring to the flat house pad having terrain you would need to use a pad to modify the surface. Let me know if this is what you are referring to.

    you have one wall that is 1900m tall so it is zooming out to fit the entire wall making everything look nonexistent. Use the flyover tool to rotate and see the tall wall and you can reset the values and all will work fine.
  14. convert the poly lines to 3d polys, then set each lines Z value to the desired elevation. I would then select all lines and use simplify polys to reduce the number of vertices. Once this is done, select all 3d polys and create site model.
  15. Same with the wavy line create one arc and mirror it for the wave. Then compose to make as one.
