    Modeling site toposurface

    Can anyone help me with this toposurface? The elevation is supposed to start from 10' at the edge of the building and go up to 20', then taper down to 14' at the end of the site. I've tried split surface several ways, but the building still shows through the bottom. Any comments are appreciated.

    thanks

    you just add points at the desired elevations in the locations where you want these changes to occur. then use the building pad tool to cut out the area where the building is. You shouldn't bee spliting the surface.

    In 3D, topo surfaces don't display any thickness. The building showing through the bottom is normal behavior.

    Try this...turn on the Section Box. Once it cuts it you'll see the thickness.
