Annoying terrain

Recommended Posts

Is there a better way to get the terrain for a walkout basement.  The sw keeps doing stupid stuff and doesn't seem to get the idea of having specific depths.  I put a bunch of elevation lines in and get the results shown where at transition points you get weird stuff.  Elevation region doesn't seem to do anything at all.

Here's the iso-bars.  CA isn't getting the fact there's a 100% slope at the edge of the foundation and is trying to smooth it out with isobars.  There are no isobars!

see your other question and read those KB articles.....

 

also I think I see Terrain inside the house which may mean you have unchecked the box in the pic or have a broken wall somewhere in your plan.

Maybe I should just start over.  Can someone give me step-by-step on how to do the attached?  I want a window well and a walk-out door.  Steps from the door will go up 4-5 steps than turn right to reach grade.  I have used elevation lines to try and get the slope but Chief keeps doing stupid things on the ends.  Used terrain features for the steps.

Also have the terrain clip on already but still getting terrain in the house.  There are no breaks in the walls.

#1. Just because the walls appear to be connected, doesn't mean that they really are.  Pull all walls back and let them 're-snap'.

 

#2. You have to uncheck 'flatten terrain' if you want it to slope.

 

#3.  What I see in your pic, is a window 'well' and a door and stair 'well'.  Create the wells as explained in the kb article, and then add the stairs.
