Tracing ACAD files & Terrain

Postby randallwise » Fri Nov 30, 2007 12:50 pm

What's the best way to trace & 3D my curbs, walls, etc. Also, based on the attached model, what's the best way I can get terrain into the model?

This is for a landscape plan.

Also, if you wouldn't mind looking at my buildings and letting me know if there's somethig screwy? I appreciate the feedback thus far...

I cant see you attachment. I'm assuming you are bringing in a vector plan?
there are a couple of rubys you will find indispensable for this work(IMO) :
one is called Weld, and another called selection memory 2
Weld makes polylines of all your selected cad ingrediaents.
Selection Memory 2 works by helping you recall sets of lines when you are selecting masses of lines to Weld.

Tracing a topo/curb and gutter/ parking, street layout would be a real pain if you didn't have to do it.
Regards,
Hank
