Spotlight License - Site Plan Work Around


Recommended Posts

I work primarily in the entertainment/events industry, but have recently purchased some land and would like to develop my site plan with VW. I only have the Spotlight license and understand that the site model tools (among others) aren't available without Architect/Landmark. I'm trying to avoid the expense of an additional license for a one-off personal project.


Does anyone have any good workarounds for creating topography of a site using more rudimentary tools? I don't mind a bit of added manual work to get it done.


Many thanks!

I did a quick test and this worked perfectly. I didn't even have to connect the polys. Just drew them as a contours, set them at their various heights (as you would find on a topo map), and they draped perfectly.


Thanks so much! @bcd 


A quick gif attached of the process in case it's helpful for anyone else.
