  1. Hello! I'm trying to make a pad with retaining edge, but when I apply it to the terrain model, the topography gets weirdly jagged all over the model, even in areas nowhere near the pad. Photos below show the terrain before the pad is applied, then the messed-up terrain afterwards. A file that contains only the terrain and pad is also attached. Any suggestions would be much appreciated! Thanks. Ducros_terrain only.vwx
  2. v2022 If editing a pad retaining edge z value, how does one select a facet/side of the retaining edge polygon? OIP Move option is set to Retaining Modifier Edge. Or maybe this is not intent? Or this is a bug that facets cannot be selected or moved ? vwx Help seems to indicate it's possible: Move (Pad with retaining edge only) Select the portion of the retaining edge modifier to edit (vertex or edge), and then edit its Z value, or scroll through its vertices with the left and right arrows and change the selected vertex Z value. Several issues if the OIP Move option is Retaining Modifier Edge If the Retaining Edge poly is non planar (vertex z values vary), change to OIP z value flattens the poly so that all vertices have same, new z Click Edit arrows - the entire poly highlights (well, maybe not one facet), the various vertices highlight, but not individual edges/sides between the vertices. If the Reshape tool is activated, any vertex can be z adjusted by dragging (might need to disable snaps), but facets cannot be selected and moved. eg, marquee select is not available. Workaround is to move individual vertices. -B
  3. Hi, I'm having trouble getting a Pad with Retaining Edge to Work inside another Pad with Retaining Edge. I attach two screenshots. One is of a Pad with Retaining Edge inside another Pad With Retaining Edge and the other one is the way I believe the combination of the last two mentioned should work (the second screenshot is made though by a Pad with Retaining Edge containing a Pad with a Grade Limits) Am I doing something wrong by placing a Pad with Retaining Edge inside another site modifier of the same mode?
