  1. Working with the command AEC>Terrain>Create Retaining Wall Site Modifier, and finding quirks. v2022 file attached Source wall directions determine high/low retaining sides. But some combinations of wall direction produce retainage boundaries jogged out of wall alignment, shown here in Top/Plan. This added kink cannot be corrected via the edit tools. Certain source wall direction combinations produce proper retain alignments in a 2 wall system. I find it difficult to predict which combo will produce correct alignment and correct high/low sides. Multi wall systems may not have a combo that works. Workaround is to apply the command to individual wall sections. -B Retaining Wall Site Mod.vwx
  2. Another Retaining Wall Site Modifier quirk: Create the modifier from a Round (arc) source wall via AEC>Terrain>Create Retaining Wall Site Modifier. Edit the z value at center or end of Left/Right Retaining edges via Reshape tool. Result is a hook, or added short vertical (nearly) segment at the new position. This hook does not have an editable vertex. But it does cause a crease in the site model surface. Strangely, no hooks at start edge if those vertices are moved. In the image, the End edge is hidden for clarity. -B
  3. The title pretty much describes it - I wish that the 'Retaining Wall Site Modifier' & 'Hardscape Objects' that are included with Landmark would also be included with Architect. All of my projects are modest single-family homes and typically my projects do not have a Landscape Architect on the design team. Many times I have wanted to use just those two objects, just so that I could more accurately integrate my building into the site model. It's only fair since Landmark got the Curtain Wall tool (?) and I can't remember any Landscape Architect I have ever worked with needing to use a curtain wall tool. 😉 EDIT 03/2020: This wishlist request is partially fulfilled in Vw2020: The Help File says that ‘Hardscape’ objects are now available in Architect (but ‘Retaining Wall’ Site Modifiers are still only available in Landmark / Designer).
