Ok, So I'm new to revit, using 8.0 and I cannot get the sitework for our project to render. I have tried constructing it two ways, first as a flat plane using the property line command and then layering components on top of it. Secondlt I trued splitting the plane and changing the elevations of the split items. Neither has worked, when I render, all I get is Dirt at the building base, regardless of if I have the ground plane on. I'm sure there is something simple I am missing. Any Ideas would be helpful.

Ummm are you talking about the ground plane options in rendering settings? cos i dont use them, i find toposurface is the best. have you used toposurface b4? there should be a tutorial in revit for constructing topography, but its really easy if you just wanna use it as a flat plane. Go to Site> toposurface. If you have an imported site with contours from cad for example you can select the 'use imported > import instance' option and it will automatically set up points from that. Or u can just do a simple one, and select 'point' and change the elevation on the options bar to the level that u want (eg, level 1 has 300 floor, therefore bottom of that is -300) and place the points as your boundary. Remember to change the material type in the properties b4 u finish and it should be all good. Take off any ground plane options or wateva on your rendering settings and re-render. Hope that helps :D

I was talking about the ground plane options in the rendering settings, and they are all off... I was using the property line command to set my plane, and I thought that it was the same as the topo command. I'll try it again tommorrow with the topo command and see if that works. Thanks for the help.

OK, the other thread helped tremendously, thank you... I knew it was something simple I was over looking.
