Making a site model in Vectorworks 10

Recommended Posts

I've been using VW at work for a few years now, but only now are we needing to do more 3D stuff. I'm trying to do a site/terrain model using a 2D engineers' survey. This is usually an imported AutoCad file, where the contours are made up of multiple lines. I convert the contours into polygons for ease of manipulation anyway, but is there an easy way to create a solid site model with these contours? I know ArchiCAD had a fairly straightforward conversion into site mesh. I've found a few long ways 'make do', but I'm sure there's an easier way.
