Gretings,

What is the best way to handle the contuors and required retaining walls on a sloping site?

I am sloping 2', need to cut out the ground for my doors. I thought building pad, but not working, started adding points to my surfaces but that is crazy work. I have not yet merged my surfaces....

thanks

What do you mean its crazy?  See the attached images. I did that in about 5 minutes. No need for a building pad, you'd put the points like the would be in real life.

As teafoe says ... just add a point to both sides of your wall.  Then more in the field as required.

Guess I am not doing something correctly.  When I add points to a Topo surface, they are essentiall ignored and the topo simply connects 4 points, ignoring anything more complicated than a rectangle.  My grading goes all around my building (not a single slope) and no mater what I draw it will just connect 4 points. So I have been drawing a bunch of rectangles and thats the 'crazy' part I mentioned earlier. 

my topo is simple, rectangle at 100, 101, 102, 103. have 4 walls up 8' and a floor, all with a base at 100.  cut a section and the topo goes right through the building...

Building pad is no good, as it also hides the interior of the building while in Section view (and leaves a line at the top of the pad).

Just want to have my building sit 2' down from the top of a hill that slopes away in all directions.

Also, I can not label the contours, draw my sketch line perpendicular to the contour (which I am assuming is the line generated by creating a Topo surface) and I get the 'does not intersect a contour' message.

fun times

Hey Ho, I got it to GO....

I had to make four seperate slopes.  You can not think of a site like a 'Wedding Cake' bs 'stack' topology.

thanks
