Hi,

If I make a simple garden wall sitting on topography, how do I get a line to appear where the wall meets the topographic surface (when viewed in 3D, hidden line style)? My wall starts below and is penetrating through the surface level of the topography. Tou can see the joinin the shading with edges style (see attached)...

Thanks in advance!

Have you learned about join geometry.  If not, you can read about it in your help.

yeah i have... but certain things such as this it won't allow me to join. If i select the wall first I can't select the topography, and vice versa

Of course Not, you CAN'T join walls With toposurface (not until now, i don't know in Revit 2011...), did you create a PAD by the Exterior perimeter of those Walls?

No i didn't actually, i didnt realise you had to... I've used them before so i know how they work in general. however this time i didnt because I wasn't sure how to make it fit the shape of foundation im using (its a strip foundation, see image) which cuts under the ground adjacent to the building.

Why don't you create a thinnes PAD below your slab around your exterior walls and check if it work?
