just wondering how people represent the existing ground line on elevations to show what the ground was like before the building was put on the surface and levels amended to suit.

If you have your site bulit with graded regions/pads - you should be able to show it automatically.

I'm trying to do exactly this at the moment with great difficulty. The problem appears to be related to phasing and graphical substitutions, but no matter how many parameters I try, I can't get the original site toposurface (existing) to show a dotted line in elevation without blocking out the portion of my facade which is below the line. Any thoughts anyone???

Another point of complication is that my toposurface is in a linked file. Not sure how/if this would have an effect.

Did anyone find a solution to this - I am having the same problem - the existing ground line is hiding everything below it in section on the proposed section drawings

Either cut the topo around the foundations of the building, or use a pad, or represent the ground with filled regions.  For our sections we use a minimal gray filled region against basement walls, arcing up to ground level.  it takes about 10 minutes to give the impression of ground plane across all sections, and looks better than tooling with visibility settings, and still having large swaths of earth hatch on the sheets.
