Convert landscape Contours to solid surface


I am working on a proposed industrial estate on a sloping site where I have four plots and will need to do c=some cut and fill to plac eteh structures and retaining walls and have been provided with as existing contours of the site (with the contours at 500mm height increments).


I woudl like to convert the contours into a solid surface and then create site sections through the site (approx 20 sections).  I have tried the Vectorworks help but cannot work out how to do it to create 2D sections that I can then trace or create into a polygon as an existing section - any suggestions? Thanks

The Site Model is designed to do this for you.

You use the contours as the source data and the result will be a 3d site model which is responsive to cut & fill, grading etc and can be displayed in numerous ways.
