Hi All,

 Which version of Revit has solved the issue of creating kerbs that follow the slope of the topography?

Unfortunatly Revit is not quite up to speed on the civil side of things. I belive better site tools was #1 or 2 on the wish list. But even if they wanted to impliment them in it probably wont happen until the Revit 2010. For now you can just use a series of reference planes and attach the wall to them, but it wont give you a true curve...

What a shame. That seems like a very time consuming exercise. 

And I was just starting to love using Revit for its efficiency.

When you are dealing with a site that has terrain you would essentially call a cliff face(southeast asia), placing your building and dealing with the civil works is now a nightmare. So much for all the time I saved creating the individual buildings.

 The closest I have come to creating a quick and easy tool for creating kerbs is to create a site component which is hosted by the site, just like a parking bay component. Grade the site point by point (another nightmare) to reflect where your roads will be either cutting or filling the site acordingly. The component automaticall picks up the slope of the terrain at which it is placed. You still need to keep the component small (2m) .Keep placing along the terrain.

Has anyone used more efficient ways in solving the basic requirement of road kerbs?

Unfortunatly I dont think that the original developers were thinking of useing Revit as a site modeling tool so those issues were never addressed. If you have complex site geometry you can always build it in Civil3D, 3dsMax or something else and import it... Hopefully we will see something in the next release, but I'm not holding my breath.

Have you tried creating a roof edge to follow the line of the topography, then creating a fascia using the kerb profile?
