Closed Contours

Recommended Posts

I am trying to create a cut & fill model where the proposed contours are closed.  

VW2020 doesn't seem to close contours, when I click the final node on the first one it just creates an open contour.  If I convert a closed shape to a contour it creates an open contour.  Clicking the 'close' button on the OIP has no effect.  


Any ideas?

@Laura Stone -- I agree and will bring this up internally again. For now, try using "pad" when you want a closed "contour". Don't forget to always use a "grade limit" as well! 😉

Thanks Tony,


I have found a workaround by dragging a new node and placing it on top of the first, so the contour is still open but works like a closed one.


Would be good to have contours reflecting reality though.
