Terrain perimeter issues...none visible...no edit buttons

Recommended Posts

Ok...I now have the structure how I want but when I tried to work on the terrain there is not a visible editable terrain perimeter.When in 3D the terrain perimeter seems to be there When selecting any of the terrain tools, including the data tools, all are inoperative. I have built terrain previously. I have tried all the settings, saved and renamed the plan to protect the design. I reset all the defaults. There is still no visible terrain perimeter thus no way that I see to build the walkout terrain.

 

To test the settings in place, I opened a new drawing, drew a simple box structure and checked for a terrain perimeter. It is there and functional.

 

I have attached both files

 

Help please

 

Regards

Your terrain is on level 0.

You work on the terrain in Plan view.

I didn't realize that the terrain would be at level 0. Is that typical or did a setting value someplace in the defaults cause this to be at that level? I have not seen that situation previously

 

Thanks

Terrain builds on whatever level you are on when you Build Terrain.

...so there is really no disadvantage in this particular plan...I am already working the terrain numbers using Level 0...it.s just a numbers game...in the future I will make sure terrain is built on Level 1...

 

This little exercise has answered a question formed during watching various terrain videos. I noticed a wide swing in elevation numbers from video to video...this helps understand why...

 

Thanks again for all you do here...you make a  big difference and alleviate some serious stress...
