How do i draw an inclined terrain ?

Recommended Posts

i'm not a Vectorworks expert but i've bought a terrain in the top of a hill so yesterday i went with a friend and we measured the terrain level in several points with a optic Topcon station and i-ve annoted the data on a hand made plan of the terrain (about 30 points)...today i draw the terrain with VW...i've done it as a 3d polygon but now i don't have the idea on how to put my points inside it to obtain a 'deformed'polygon that looks like a mountain terrain...maybe this is the wrong method? Thanks a lot in advance

i,ve rendered the terrain and it seems ok but when i try to cr?ate a pad it doesn't do nothing (i've postioned the pad at a -2 mts from the top of the hill, i've created the boundary outside of the pad and i've updated the site modifier but nothing happens....any tips?

i mean, when i cr?ate a pad over the terrain level (like 1 or 2 meters) it will display correct. But when i creat under the terrain level (-2 mts) it doesnt appear plan...only the lowest part change correctly but the higest side remains at the same level so i obtain a slope terrain and not plain
