Best way to create site model without VW Landscape?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hey guys


I'm supposed to model a proposed terrain (not the existing one, the one we want to create around a new building).

To do so, I unfortunately don't have height curves or any data of that kind. I have:

  • A site model of the existing terrain made by a geometer
  • the detailed height of the borders (since we can't change these they correspond to the original model)
  • some 1:100 Plans with a few elevation levels, for example next to the building we want to create.

That means, I have mainly a few points, no curves to set the height from.


What would be the best approach to create that site model?

I also don't have VW Landscape installed and can't change that. would that be a problem?

you don't need landmark to create a site model, the commands you need are in Architect, in the AEC menu. You can create a site model from 3D loci, stake objects, or 3D polygons.
