Site design professionals need intuitive and interactive terrain modeling tools to accomplish grading projects more efficiently, and the Site Modeling features within Vectorworks® Landmark 2018 can assist with this process. This workflows presented in this webinar will emphasize how site-specific terrain modeling tools enable creation, analysis, and visualization of each project's existing and proposed topography.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how a Site Model surface can quickly be created from imported terrain data, such as survey points and 2D and 3D contour lines.
  • Recognize how the Site Model settings will create 2D and 3D visualized representations for existing and proposed grades.
  • Understand how each site modifier mode, including the new direct contour edit feature, will affect the proposed grading plan and surface to achieve the desired result.
  • Review how features for slope analysis, surface drainage flow, and cut and fill calculations can enable sustainable site design.
