Landscape walls on a 3D slope

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

I have VWLM+RW 2009 and would like to know if there is any simple way to create a landscape wall that follows a slope in a 3D site model without splitting the wall up using the split tool and changing the Z elevation in each individual section.

Any input will be greatly appreciated

There are a couple ways to do this. For a "quick study" you could try creating some (temporary) geometry, on it's own layer, and use the "Fit Walls To Roof" command.

But I would ask the following: if you are actually designing the wall(s), won't it need to have stepped footings, and perhaps a stepped top? If so, and if you want to see (and be able to use) the "actual" elevation/depth/etc. of each section, then it might ultimately be better to be more anatomically accurate in the first place... Just a thought...
