  1. Pad site modifiers should also have a checkbox and texture selection for adding a texture to the modified surface. If I'm using a slab modifier, it probably as likely as not to need a texture different from the default. I use lumion with 3d grass, when I create a pad for a structure (house, pool, sidewalk...), I have to duplicate the path and create a texture bed modifier too. If not, grass will come up through slabs when rendering.
  2. Dear VectorWorks Landmark friends More and more i miss the Landmark road planning improvements, so i can plan the roads a little more flexible directly on the site model and so i can define the needed cross-section profile of the road side slopes etc. icluded. Here is a good example from Revit (please notice: the awfull background music should be muted): https://youtu.be/tw7_hLQo_H0 So far I understand, is also Revit not a specific road planning software, but still they have the compadibility for planning the roads a little more functional way, not just as a flat cross-section profile based way. This is clear, that i dont wait from vectorworks to have the 100% functionality of road planning-engineering software like for example Bentley Microstation has the InRoads software etc., but a little more functional tools are really missing to have a bit more roadworks and sometimes the communication with the engineers done a little more efficient. Hoping for improvements in next Landmark Road planning tools. Thanks a lot!
  3. It it currently not possible to have a site model modifier that does a form like the images I attach. I have tried doing this with a 3D Polygon placed under the DTM-Modifier class but the site model reads 3D polygons as contour lines. The pad with slope doesn't provide the form I want to create either. I have also tried creating a 3D Polygon, converting it to Nurbs then via the 3D power pack>Create Surfaces from Curves, then Create Interpolated Surfaces, and then placing that in the DTM-Modifier class but then the site model converts that into a mesh with little information that does not contain the form that I want. So the best way to create this strange shaped would be with the subdivision surface. I hope one day one can use this object as a site modifier. Or it could also be created via an interpolated surface but then the site model should respect all vertices and not read the interpolated surface as quite a basic mesh when the interpolated surface is in the DTM-Modifier class. Maybe I'm totally wrong and doing this type of form in a terrain is possible, if so, I would be very glad if someone tells me how can this be done. This type of form occurs many times in the real world, for example you have a ramp that's connected to a street with an incline and to a garage that it's entry level is straight...

    Site Model Modifier Conflicts

    Hello all, I have been working a site model for a quarry. I have two sets of survey data, a topographical survey taken in 2017 in PDF form, and a topo survey from 2018 of the same site in DWG form. I turned the DWG into a site model, and have added in site modifiers of the 2017 data by adding stake points and contours, so that I can compare the two surveys to see how the quarry has changed. I have encountered an issue with a particular contour in the site modifiers, and this contour has flagged up 424 modifier conflicts. I cannot get my head around why only this contour has the problems, and upon clicking the warning triangle it states 'Pads Intersect', however, I have not used any pads, only contours and stake points. Does anybody have any suggestions as to why this is happening? As you can see from the zoomed in images, the modifier conflict warnings are not actually sat on top of 'crossovers' and you can see from other contours that these are not problems. I have attached pictures to help, with the zoomed out image showing only the proposed contours, and the zoomed in showing both (green and blue) proposed and existing. Thanks Joe
  5. The Grade Object tool in Landmark has long been a frustration of mine. It is a very powerful tool, but when used in actual applications it is SUPER SLOW and cumbersome. I hope the grading tools and workflows get a hard look for both functionality and usability because many are just clunky and not applicable in a professional setting.

    Site Modifier Pad Issues

    I have created a pad from a closed 3d polygon, which varies in height along a curve on my model. When I update my site model, one edge of the pad acts as I expect it to - the road ramps down to meet the edge of the pad. However, I then expect the inside of the pad to form ground level, and for the site levels on the other side of the pad to meet the edge of the pad - which doesn't' happen? Instead, I get a cliff edge.... can anyone help me with what I'm missing?

    Help with joined Site Modifier path

    I am working with getting refine skills in Site Modeling. I have a small building resting over a steep hill . I designed one floor building with a terrace at one level and the remaining area steps up into another pad elevation. I have trouble setting the Site Modifier for Pad with retaining wall and normal pad. The problem that I face is that the pad are joined together alone the line that separated both sections of the building returns an error. What technique I need to apply? IS there a better technique to tackle this situation. I sea a lot videos but they don t really take into account Pad modifiers that are aligned one next to the other touching together. Here is a link to the VW drawing... https://www.dropbox.com/s/ro2ke5nzk1dqqh0/Hacienda_Delfines.vwx?dl=0
  8. I need help mastering site modifiers tools. I have trouble getting the Boundary limit around a pad. I have set a boundary site modifier for the property limit. Proposed Site Model looks good. But I entered a second smaller grade modifier inside the property surrounding a site modifier pad. But the second boundary limit is not acting as expected. The pad is created but the contour is modified all the way to the outside boundary limit of the property. https://www.dropbox.com/s/ro2ke5nzk1dqqh0/Hacienda_Delfines.vwx?dl=0

    Can not find a hidden modifier help

    I am working on a site model. I created a site modifier in my mother that later erased. But I can not find why the proposed still shows a grade modification. I have checked the only modifier present is the Boundary modifier of the lot. Please help. Here is the archive https://www.dropbox.com/s/ro2ke5nzk1dqqh0/Hacienda_Delfines.vwx?dl=0
  10. 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?
  11. This is a fairly simple request. Can a field be added to stake objects that would allow for the addition of a prefix or suffix. This would allow for more precise graphical communication of spot elevation types (i.e. FS, TW, TS, FL, etc.)? We ideally need this information to use stake objects as annotative tools for grading plans.
