can anyone tell me if it is possible to step the elevation start point that you see in the floor plan so that it follows the shape of the building. The terrain on a job Im doing at the moment undulates & if the elevation starting line is straight it doesnt show the ground level right at the wall face, it shows the ground level where the elevation line is. do I make sense? i guess I mean similar to a section line that steps in & out at the locations that you want the model cut.

I think everyone would like to know how to do this, its a real pain! One workaround is to forget using the elevation tools and draw your elevations as sections (which can be stepped) and adjust the labels accordingly. If anyone knows how do this using elevations, tell us - everyone wants to know!

I take it that this is just not possible. (i cant beleive it!) It means almost a total redraw of 2 of my elevations from the ground level to floor level- pain in the a__ How does everyone else overcome this shortcomming? cheers

Well, one thing you could do is draw in a filled region (with an earth pattern) in the shape you are needing to see, then turn of your topography in that view. I know it's not a great solution, but works when I need it to. Vanessa

Yes definitely not possible. two workarounds suggested above are the best methods of approach.
