Site Model Texture Bed with Thickness

Benson Shaw


Wishing for:
Enhanced Site Model Texture Bed or new Site Model "ThickBed" feature which offers:
•  A 3d solid/volume derived from all or portion of a site model surface
•  Concentric top and bottom surfaces (similar to a Shell object)
•  User defined thickness and/or components with thickness (similar to slabs and walls).
•  OIP or other access for controlling thickness value and direction (up/down) and bottom z.

•  Classable and Layerable.
•  Controls for attributes, perhaps similar to wall and slab components.
•  more


•  Soil stratigraphy, filled trenches and other sub grade features (downward thickness)
•  Zones of building heights in regional planning (upward thickness)
•  more


Some things to chew on:
•  Are these ThickBeds site modifiers? or "dumb" volumes? user choice?
•  Control attributes via Site Model configuration? dedicated dialog? Attributes palette?
•  Cut/Fill aware?
•  more


There are some process heavy ways to make shell objects from site model surface, but it's a pain.  Wish is for easier way to accomplish.
