I still have not found an intuitive terrain modelling platform for us landscape architects.
Rhino can produce nice surfaces, which can be pulled and pushed to get the aethetics right, but its contours are inaccurate and, unlike Civil 3D, very static. Civil 3D on the other hand is very dynamic and great in live sections and contours, but falls short on the landform intuitive push-pull design front. Sketchup is still a toy and that’s about it.
I am interested to hear your opinions, other experience or about new tools.
