    Fencing up a topographic surface

    Hello every one.

    I need some help. I am trying to find the best practice of applying fencing to a topographic surface I use railing all of the time for flat area but there is no way to make it follow a surface of the topo. Has any one had any luck with a family that follows up a grade. any ideas???

    Hint: floors can have slopes. Floors host railings. Floors can be situated to just below visible grade. You can make a floor that's 4" wide x 96" long.

      Ill give that a try that is a great work around!!! Is there any method that follows the topo surface without adding a additional floor. I have five acres of fencing plan to do.

        Nothing that will follow topo - you'll have to devote the next 8 or 9 days to your 5 acre site. Sing some cowboy / C&W tunes whilie you work. Good luck & exercise patience.

          We use Curtain Walls for fencing. Its still a manual slope situation, but you can do it with Edit Profile and eyeball it, which i prefer over some of the other solutions.

            Curtain wall works, too.

            I've attached one that I did a few years ago with floors/railings.

              I am with Aaron on this one.

              Having tried lots of different options re floors etc, I found it is simpler and quick to use a curtain wall and edit the top and bottom profile according to the slope of the land.

                Wow guys,

                I think I will have the best of both worlds, if I use the floors as a base and off set a top floor at 6' higher and use the curtain walls as the fence attach to top and bottom and then place the floors in a work set and hide them. This might work well. Thanks guys!

                  its funny how different our rendering styles are from Cali to NY. our rendering are always blue skies and your rendering are snow covered.... I have seen this a lot in the upper Midwest and Northeast rendering firms. rendering driven by environment. nice work!

                    This is the only one I've ever done in snow - I was just being adventurous, maybe. Thanks.
