Site Model Issues

Recommended Posts

You know what would be awesome!


A site model function where changing proposed topo ACTUALLY WORKED. 

Instead of wasting everyones time, maybe when I move a proposed topo line to a reasonable spot, it should generate topo that corresponds with that line! Right now, I change a proposed topo line and that the site model freaks out generates an aneurysm.


passively thanks

Patrick, can you describe the process you are using to move the proposed topo line? i.e. are you editing 2D contours, or applying site modifiers? If the latter, do you have a grade limit enclosing the site modifiers?

Hi Tamsin,


I am editing the 3d site model by the way of 2D contours. I have not yet applied any site modifiers. 


It would be really nice to be able to edit the 2d contours and have them exactly where they are drawn too. Otherwise I am just re-drawing my contours 2 dimensionally in my site plan, the old-school way. This makes the 3D site model only a burden.

If you would like to upload an example, and give me screenshots showing where you are making edits, and what's going wrong, I'll be happy to take a look.
