I have an existing toposurface which I used a graded region to add in my new contours.  I have an existing site plan and an new site plan.  The existing shows the existing site and contours just fine, the new site plan shows the existing and the new contours but I cannot tell the difference between the 2 (I know but a contractor wouldn't).  My question is, is it possible to change the existing contour lines to a solid line type and have the new contours show up dashed (or vice versa)? 

I attached two pictures below showing the existing plan and new plan and the phasing of them.

what is the view range?  is the toposurface below the bottom cut plane?  if so the contours will be overridden with the <beyond> linetype.  If the toposurface and graded region are set to the correct phases the phase overrides should work (demo, existing, new construction)

tea - it looks like you set the contour lines to dashed (hidden) in either object styles or VG setting in the view.  The pahse settings should take care of the existing.

The way it should look, as a Civil Engineer, is that the moved contours which originally passed through your building should be dashed, and then new and the old all solid. If you follow the very precise method outlined in the older user's guide on page 436 in the 2008 version Viewing Cut and Fill Volumes, it will turn out just like that.

Thanks for the answers I will have to play with it further and see if I can find the problem using the information you guys gave me.
