Can anyone recommend an easy-to-use software for this?
Or can we generate spot heights in Sketchup somehow?
Eric, yes please message me if you wish firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is an example of the situation I want to improve upon:
We are provided with (i) an AutoCAD topographic model of a site and (ii) a building design with a FFL (level).
We want to take spot heights form both (fixed points) and within a design of paths we want to
a) Have cross-falls not exceeding 1:40
b) Drain away from the building and into soft landscape areas
c) Ensure no path exceeds 1:20 grade
d) Ensure no soft areas exceed 1:3 grade.
What I want is a software which will model the landscape with these parameters. Perhaps one way would be to set ‘fixed levels’, ‘pedestrian zones’ and ‘soft landscape zones’.
And I would like the ability to change the design and have the levels adjust for me.
If your software can do that I’d love a demo.
Would like to see the solution to this, as well.
Eric or Neil - Can you post it online so all can benefit? Thanks!
Could you please explain how it worked for you? Even I have studied AutoCAD, I don't have any practical experience.
