Managing Elevation Data

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I spent a lot of time making an elevation profile of my very-hilly lot (see attached picture). Home Designer imported that with no problem.

 

My question is regarding moving the house within the lot. I cannot seem to find a way to only select the house, so every time I try to move it, I end up moving the elevation points, which screws up the elevation.

 

Can I send the elevation points to a different layer but still make the elevation profile visible?

 

The most import thing for me right now is to be able to nudge the house to be "just right", but I have to see the elevation profile for that.

 

How can I do it without selecting the elevation points below the house?

 

Best,

 

Gustavo

See if you can Lock the elevation data layer.

How do I lock the elevation data?

Layers dialog.

 

Hello Solver,

 

I tried to lock the elevation layer (Terrain, Elevation Data). When I use the Edit Area (All Floors) to move the plan, it still moves the elevation points even though they are locked. If I use the Edit Area (All Floors) Visible, it keeps the elevation data in place (which is good) but it does not move all I need. 

 

Any help?

 

Best,

 

Gustavo

Ok, I found the answer. I checked every feature to display except for the elevation data. I then used the Edit Area (all Floors) Visible to move the plan. It worked.
