    Merging topo surfaces

    From RAC help...
    Select the primary surface.
    Select the secondary surface.

    The 2 surfaces merge into one.


    Come on! I didn't ask what merge means!!!

    How can we merge surfaces, how is it done, because it is not the same no matter which you choose first... Which one is the primary and why???

    Is it really merging surfaces or is it just unite splitted surfaces???
    I make some tests and I get misc different results..

    What I want is this.... I have surface A and I want to change it a little... I make a surface B which in some areas has higher points from A... With merge, I want to make something like boolean union of the two surface with blending at the edges...

    I know about graded regions but this is not what I want...
    I also tried to add/remove/change some points of surface A but I can't get what I want...

    I really hope we see something new in site tools with RAC 2012, even if I have to learn new tools like Nucleus...

    Some images to show what I need...

    Images 1,2 : The two surfaces
    Image 3: Choose the brown surface first
    Image 4 : Choose the grey surface first...

    I understand that the primary defines the material of the final surface... but the results are really something that you can't control... and of course really different between the two cases.

    ...
    It's more about the latter: join two surfaces that had been split before. Or, if that was not the case, the two surfaces must at least share a common edge.

      Thank you for the answer, but as my example shows, what I have is a set of overlaping surfaces... different heights... and they become one... so there is a specific way of connecting these two... some calculations...
      But we don't know how exactly... right? and we certainly don't have a way to control it...

      What I really need is to create the final ground surface after the construction and the arrangement of the surrounding...
      Like the image but not with floors... I know that right now it can't be done... And we have this silly sections... If it was possible to control topo surfaces, this section would be as it should...

        Site tools in Revit need improvement, but at least what you are trying to do is perfectly possible, using the Split surface tool, creating a separate topo element in a rectangular shape, and then modifying the elevation of the points that define that rectangle.

          I am sure I tried this once, but I can't remember why it didn't work!!!
          Really very much obliged!!! Thank you...

          I can't believe I didn't ask before... I used almost 10 floors for my last project!

            Maybe you should visit RFO more often...

              Well, I visit RFO 3-4 times per day from the moment I discovered it... and I get instant mail notice for any answer... check it I guess you can... and I recomend it to every greek Revit user I know... but there are not many....
              Anyway, I will ask first, try later... from now on...
              RFO is a great help. Thank you!
