Im fairly new to revit but I know of two ways. One you can create a pad. Or you can create a subregion(s) in the topography, and change the material to either asphalt or concrete.

gerryh06 has got it. First you will need to create a topograpghic surface. There is a button for this under Site in the Design Bar. Then use the Pad button (also on the Site tab). It is easiest to plan out all of your Drives and Lots first, and do them all together. Then do your Sidewalks separately. I'll have to try the subregion technique. archwestcy

I don't use the pad as much as I use to. It has its advantages and disadavantages. If you use the subregion technique everything will be in place with the topography. (i.e, your driveway slopes down toward your house, but you have alot of dif. contours, and may need to put a few turns here and there...) Pads the easiest and probably the best b/c you can add a thickness to the driveway/sidewalk.

I'm a relatively new user. I have been using "wall" to create curbs, this is ok in a straight line but when you try to create a curved curb it all falls apart. Sidewalks that are rectangular can be adjusted fairly easily although it could be enhanced alot by adding global elevation. What really would be great is a 3D path.
