I use RA2009.

I build a road on the site using pads. I have ramps and flat parts. But even though i align pad lines whenever touching each other, on some ramps (not all, some are ok!) there are small topography parts have left in between two pads.

Where have i gone wrong? Is there a solution to that?

Hi, you must see if where the pads join if they have the same elevation.... put some Axo view to figure it out...

I dont think the problem is level difference because i have levels for each level change on the road and sloped pads' arrow head and tail are determined by that levels while the flat pads sit at 0.00 of relevant level.

I guess there is sth that related with the direction of slope arrow.

ps: i already put an axonometric view up there?!?

same here. and i know it's not whether the aligned edges are at the same slope or elevations because i have some that are very obviously askew (side sloping meeting a level slope) and they are popping up the thin topo wall. any help appreciated!

The edges of the PADS must be common, you cannot "cross" two pads, but to solve this kind of issues, make sure the two pads are touching (not cross).

Same problem very annoying. Often happens when pads are chosen by walls. You get these ridiculos dirt wall at the doors and such. Sometimes I have been able to remove them by editing the pad line 1/256th inch at a time but not always. Pads Suck

I am agreeing with lunchtrayrider...which always concerns me.

 

the suggestion that the lines need to line up is not helpful to me. I have used align and pick line of the adjacent pad and neither works. mr. spot suggested in another thread that sometimes it helps to copy (while in edit mode of one pad) and paste-same-place (while in edit mode of the other). this didn't work for me either. it doesn't allow a small overlap and moving it away just makes the problem worse, so i'm not understanding the 1/256th increment idea.

 

the suggestion that it has to do with whether the edges are in the same plane doesn't help me either. I have places where the problem doesn't occur, that the edges are several inches off-axis vertically, some where they are identical that have no problems, some where they are askew and have the problem and some where they are identical and have the problem. no rhyme, no reason.

 

temporary solution? selecting the topo of the pad...not pad surface and hiding in view...it leaves the pad in place. this only works because the void left below it is hidden by the surrounding topography.

 

*sigh*

bauhaus, I have had all those different scenarios and have used the hide in view technique fairly successfully, but what a copout. Revit should change add to toposurface the ability to work with it like most of the rest of the features, that is use the negative space to cut it to any depth or to extrude it. To create the surface under the driveway or roadway. So that when you cut sections it is all in place, correctly.

agreed....i was not suggesting that hiding it is the right answer, just an unfortunately necessary workaround. if anybody has other or better, would love to hear them.

I have had the same problem as bauhaus on a project.  The scenario was a U shaped hotel with a courtyard in the middle.  the courtyard was terraced in the middle down to the main pool which also had different levels in it.  the whole coutyard was essentially made up of pads that bordered each other.  We gave up on the pads and just hid the topography in every view and sketched it in manually.  it was the fastest , most reliable thing we could do because the pads would never fisinsh sketch without errors.
