Hi.I´am making a building, consisting of two separate volumes above ground and one basement connecting the two volumes below ground.I can make a pad under the basement, cutting away the terrain around the outline of the basement vertically.  

But how do i create a "cutaway" of the toposurface, so that it shows above the basement in a siteplan view? And so that in a section view, the terrain will show below the basement and above it (between the two volumes)?

Thaks! Jaron.

In the sketch, I marked with red, where i would like to see the terrain in my model. Hope this explains it.

My quick answer to this is to use a filled region in your section view to represent the earth above the basement while leaving your topo on to show up below the pad.  I'm thinking you probably are generating several views from this model and therefore you won't want to have to "fake" every one of them, so I'm messing around to see what I can come up with.

Ok.  How about if you create an extrusion that you can place between your two buildings.  You could make the cut pattern look like earth and the surface pattern the same material as your toposurface.  This way you have a 3d object that will show up in all your views.  I was going to duplicate the topo and adjust the depth settings and what not, but that doesn't seem to be a choice in revit.

Yeah. It is solutions we did consider. Even though it is a possible workaround, it would still leave us with some "repair" work afterwards, removing lines, where the two objects meet, drawing fake topo lines, creating the sloped extrusion, fitting with the building and the toposurface object... The worst thing i guess is loosing the auto massy and precision of the topo-system.I guess if you were working with landscape-integrated architecture (dug down houses and so on) you would really have a problem...Thanks allot though!
