I am using revit 2009. I need to create a pad that merges into the top of my topo grade. I have created a sloping pad that slopes up about 10 feet but I have realised that at the top of my pad, I am having major issues aligning my head end of my sloped pad with the original topo... what am I doing wrong here? Any assistance will be greatly appreciated... plz see image attached

Pads have 'thickness' and they remove material from toposurfaces when they are within the toposurface whether the pad is visible or not.
I looks to me from the one attached image that the pad visibility is turned off leaving the void.
Need more descriptive images. (don't select the pad)

First off, thanks dgcad for the prompt response! Let me back it up a bit (I went ahead and attached 3 images for visuals):Initially, I designed and drew all the buildings for my project2nd - I was then given the data for the entire lot so I linked the buildings to the lot

3rd - later on, I received the topo data for the project (after creating project with parking     components Sad --(see site plan image)4th - Created topo from survey data - (see contour image) this is when I      realised there was a rather moderate terrain (about 20' slope)

Problems:1- Realising there was a slope, I needed to figure out a way to merge my contoured data to my flat data (unsuccessful after many attempts) Suggestions will be wonderful here.2- I started working on the contoured topo but cant get the pads to blend to form a smooth flowing road/parking lot (see site plan pad problem image) The result is a cliff that resembles an area for a retaining wall. what am I doing wrong here?

Ok, looks like perhaps the pad 'Level' and or 'Height Offset from Level' need to be adjusted in the 'instance properties' of the pad.

 

Also make sure the 'pad' visibility is turned on (which is view specific).

just a shot in the dark here, but could you use a sloped floor with a thickness and material designated for the floor type itself?
