  1. Can anybody help? I'm using the Railing/Fence tool on a site model in '3D Line Mode'. But 9 times out of 10 the Railing/Fence object is being created at Z=0, not on the surface of the site model. The cursor snaps to the contours fine but the fence when it's created is horizontal on the ground plane + the 'Height Point 1' + 'Height Point 2' parameters in the O.I.P. are both 0. The one exception to this behaviour is ONE particular saved Railing/Fence symbol I have which WILL create on the site model but ALL my other symbols + all the VW ones in the library I've tried won't. I was using VW2020 + even upgraded to VW2021 in the hope it was a bug but the behaviour's exactly the same in 2021. I've seen a couple of posts about this happening to other people but no real info on why or what can be done about it... Any ideas? @Matt Panzer @jeff prince? Many thanks. I've spent several days getting to know the tool + really like it so bit of a bummer to right at the end come up against this...
  2. I'm trying to create a fence in 3D following the Site Model contours, but no matter what snapping setting I use, it always snaps to the layer plane below (even with Snap to Working Plane deactivated). I have tried various combinations, e.g. turning on all Smart Cursor Setting for Object. The strange thing is that randomly in a new file I can model the fence in 3D following the Site Model contours, but not in files saved previously. Not sure what the pattern here is. Does anyone have some advice? Screen Recording 2021-02-04 at 4.32.11 pm 4.MOV
