    Create parking space + road etc - Suitable tool

    Hello all,

    What tool are you use in order to create roads, embankments in the side of the road and parking spaces with dofferent slopes?

    I tried once creating multiple building pad but the connection wasn't very good.

    Thank you in advance!

    Roofs seem to be the most common option since they can be shape edited and you can use fascia for things like curbs pretty easily.

    Roof tool for the roads?

    So, many roofs in order to have different slopes?

    How I will 'stop' the toposurface in the level that I want? I need to create pads, no?

    Thank you in advance!

    Roofs. Easy to model, slope, add curbs (as fascias), etc.

    Depends, if you are modeling your site with topography, the subregions. If roofs, then you would have to either paint the surface of the transition or best would be in the image there you would have 3 roofs, one main one (in the exact shape you show), then a second one for the embankments. You would use the opening tool to cut the main roof out for the location of the embankments, then use the opening tool on the embankments to cut out the grass area.

    Maria,
    Two schools of thought I think are existing here.
    Model entirely with topo and adjust and manipulate points then create subregions on the topo to indicate the material change
    Or forget using topo tool, and make the whole topo out of roofs.

    The only way I have used both is to lay the roofs down, (for a carpark that needs drainage to centre for instance, therefore one pad doesn't work), then modify topo to adjust its height in the same area as the roof so the topo sits neatly under the roof. Took me a while, but hey it was learning and fun.

    I have always wanted basic hardscaping ability in revit by having pads that allow points.

    My idea is to create the natural toposurface. And after to start to modelise the new toposurface with the parking spaces, slopes etc etc. (We want to see the form of the toposyrface)
    The subregions change only the surface, cannot define the slopes with these.

    If I create a pad in order to 'cut' the toposurface and after use floors/roofs for the parking spaces? (And after to put the parking scpace family and host to the roof/floor that i will have created?

    If I want to be very precise with the slopes and the embankments, do I need to use other software? I have the impression that with Revit the function to create these elements precise is limited. Am I wrong?

    Thank you a lot for your ideas.

    You are not wrong, Revit is TERRIBLE for accurate siteworks. Always has been. Youll get far more mileage out of civil 3D etc

    So is it a good idea to create the siteworks in Civil3D and after import it in Revit in order to create our plans? [ I think that I need also a BIM360 account..]

    Thank you!
