I posted this within the site design forum but perhaps it is better suited here. Hello everyone I started having an interesting challenge on Friday with a small site model and a curved retaining wall site modifier that was inserted. I've never experienced this issue and hope others might see an easy fix. To clarify: I have a small site model (under 1/2 acre) that was created using survey 3d polygons. All the polygons have low numbers of vertices so the model itself seems stable and easy to move around. In this design we are placing a new retaining wall that curves across the rear landscape. The file is not huge 120+ mb It appears that when one creates a retaining wall site modifier in a curved shape that the results can cause severe slow downs and crashes in this file. If you take a look at the second image I attached you'll see countless lines coming from the site model and running behind the retaining wall, this is where I think the issue is If I delete the retaining wall site modifier the file behaves itself, when it's present I have to wait several minutes for the site model to update and for the open GL to render. Even then the open GL looks poor regardless of settings. This has never happened to me on my current computer. When I change the retaining wall shape and reduce the curves, add a new retaining wall site modifier makes for a more stable file. I can conclude that these curves are causing some issues with the site model and making the file un-workable even with a robust computer. Has anyone noticed this limitation before? It's not great for us as we often work with organic shapes. I've attached the file having removed everything but the site model, the wall, retaining wall site modifier and a small pad in front. No modifier conflicts are reported. I would love to hear peoples comments on this. Thanks for any thoughts you might have. Site model.vwx
I would appreciate an interactive table for editing site modifiers. This would apply most effectively to road modifiers and pads with retaining edges. I would need it to display elevation, and slope between points and allow me to edit or lock either and calculate the other. It would also be useful to add vertexes, like rows in the proper location. The modifier in your drawing, when editing could appear with numbered vertexes that correspond to rows in the worksheet. I've attached a screenshot of the google sheet I use to calculate road polys, but having this integrated would be very helpful...
Hi is there a decent way to use walls on slopes . The wall should folllow a parallel height to the ground . fixed height on starting and ending point. but should follow down a hill.. if I send my wall to the surface to my model, it follows perfectly on the bottom the slope.but not on the top.. is there any way not to correct it manually ? thanx in advance
Hi, So I have a site model which was generated from 3D locus points. I Used the generate site model option from the AEC toolset. How do I crop it down to a particular area? Im using VWX 2016 for MAC Many Thanks, David
