  1. I agree completely. The wall tool is not yet there for Landscape and Civil. All landscape walls have footings and cap finishes with different finishes and dimensions than the core material.
  2. What about the wall top cap? Did you find a solution for the top cap?
  3. Still no interest here in this? After all these years we still can't spell check our sheet notes?
  4. Yes - doing either of those things crashes my Windows machines. Not the macs. This is probably not the space to troubleshoot this - I'll try and make a call into tech.
  5. Just an FYI here that for me anyway, trying to chose a new plant database location via workgroup folder crashes the program.
  6. For the life of me I cannot find a way to create a custom Fence Post symbol that works. If I create a symbol for a post and save it in the current document it is not listed in the selection for "custom symbol" in the fence setting dialog. Is there something specific I need to do with the symbol for this to work? EDIT: I am only able to get this to work if I save the symbol first in the appropriate folder in the resources library. It does NOT work if the symbol is saved in the current document.
  7. I wondered if anyone knows how I can get class descriptions to show up on a worksheet? I'm trying to better automate a material take-off by simply listing the classes and using the descriptions for more info for the contractor.
  8. Pat. Wondered if you have a quick way to list all classes in a worksheet? Or point me to where I can learn more about doing so? Nevermind - I was able to figure it out.
  9. Can someone please tell me what the point of the Aligned Slab Modifier hardscape object is for if all of the aligned edges produce 'pads intersect' errors on a site model? Why would we want to align slabs into a network as intended if they all produce terrain model errors?
  10. I'm wondering if anyone has tried to use aligned hardscapes on anything other than small projects. I thought I would try this feature for the first time on a large project but the feature seems so buggy and it crashes all the time I'm not sure it's worth it. Attached is a file. There are bugs and errors - hardscape stretching down to the ground way below the model etc. trying to adjust, realign and correct almost always crashes no matter what machine we are working on. HARDSCAPE TEST.vwx
  11. If I am not mistaken there is an error in this function. The road curb texture cannot be differentiated from the roadway when creating a TEE intersection.
  12. Tamsin, Thank you for doing this. I don't see anything written in the help about a custom curb not working so that should perhaps be noted somewhere. Is it possible to align hardscapes to roadway Tees and arcs?
  13. Curious. Here's my file- if you don't mind sending yours that might solve it. Thanks road-hardscape test.vwx
  14. Curious - doesn't work for me. Main slab component is datum top , it is an aligned slab component. The roadway has a rise of 2ft. I've tried multiple ways in multiple files. I am on a mac. Will try the PC next.
  15. I cannot get a hardscape to align with the edge of a sloping roadway. The help states it should align with "The top of the curb (if Curb Width or Curb Height is 0, this means the roadway’s uppermost surface at its edge)". However it will only align in the horizontal plane and it does not align vertically. Is this supposed to be possible? or does the tool assume all roadways are flat without slope? The hatching also does not work properly with this type of hardscape either. Looks like some improvements were made but per usual this time of year - not quite ready for prime time.
