    Revit Topograpghy

    Hi there,
    I'm working on a contoured riverfront but when I made the contours in revit something is not right. I can't get the right rise in site. The contours are 15' high. I don't know if I did something wrong or it's suppose to be like that. I'm attaching the screen shots and file below. Help me!!

    Thank you in advance

    Correct unit of measurements means? I used Feet fractional to inches in both at least that's what I think I did

    Hi alycealvi,

    I think you've got to understand what you've got as a topography: the lowest point is ~15'-0" and the highest point is ~75'-0".
    BUT your topo is about ~51,500'-0" across, which is nearly 9.75 MILES !!!

    So it will look like that. The height to width ratio will be ~75' / 51,500' = ~ 0.00146

    As far as seeing contours at 15'-0" intervals, have a look at this site:

    https://knowledge.autodesk.com/suppo...40A4C-htm.html

    And you hadn't set the contour interval correctly, it was set @ 3'-XX" or something. This is what it will look like @ 15'-0":

    Best of luck with your project !

    Also...don't trust your contour data in the dwg to create the topo from layers...the lines are not at the same height.
