  1. Hello Is there a way to add regrading to a site model so that the amount of earth moved from existing to proposed is determined ? I have a sloping site, and would like to recontour with a dozer so that the general elevations are lowered so the lands match the heights along a road cut. The constant plane pad with a set slope is a start, but not nearly able to reproduce what I am looking for. The attached image is what I am after .... to draw a pad alongside the roadway and set the elevations at each point matching the road elevation ... I did NOT have much success drawing a 3Dpolygon along the roadway and across the lot, with the desired elevations, and then using it to modify ... it didnt affect the model ... I did set the class to site-dtm-modifier ... and it was in the layer modifying the model ... but no effect upon updating. Operator error is an obvious start. Any suggestions for doing this ? or alternative approaches ? ************************************************************************************ Steve Dimond, GSC, M.Sc., P.Eng., Prince Edward Island, Canada MacOS 10.13.6, MacBookPro mid 2015, 16 Gb Ram, Vectorworks v2019 Designer, Renderworks
  2. Attached is an image of a staircase with landings and a retaining wall on one side. The lower staircase was easy, just 2 sloping contours and the adjacent pads. The upper part required a lot more work because of the landings and the sloping terrain adjacent. Could these sloping contours be automatically generated as a feature added to the stairs? Alternatively, could you give the contour the operability of the 3D polygon so i can snap it to the edges of the stairs with the correct Z height (ie not have to set z height in the OIP)?
