Terrain

Recommended Posts

I create a terrain around my home that has a walk-out basement on one end.  I have a flat terrain area on each end of the house.  On the walk-out end the basement slab elevation is -102" so I set the flat terrain area on that end at -106" so that the grade is 4" lower than the top of foundation wall at this end.  On the other end of the house is my garage.  The garage slab is 14" below the interior floor elevation of 0" so I set the exterior flat terrain area at -18", which puts the grade at several inches below the top of foundation wall.  When I click "build terrain" it does not meet these elevation criteria.  If I then lower the walk-out end to expose the top of foundation the desired 4" the terrain at the other end of the house raises up to be above the elevation I set.  What am I doing wrong?

When I opened your plan file it told me that it was created in Chief Architect Professional (not Home Designer, which is the forum you posted on, not Chief Talk). You should state what version of the software you ARE using, first and foremost. Then Help can then be delivered that fits what you have (you should not make us guess what software you are using).

As well as giving this user a lecture about stating the proper version of the software, would it have hurt for you to provide some insight into what his trouble is, or at least point him to the proper tutorial?
