About the Tool:
This add-in took a quite some time to reach a desirable result after many times of trials. The purpose of this add-in is to help the designer landscaping the topography by grading and aligning to a previously designed road. For any defaults notes/Recommendation to help developing this tool, I would be happy to be contacted at: firstname.lastname@example.org
As promised, this is an extension to my previously developed tool “Align Topo to Road” [Deprecated] but this one is completely opposite. In this tool you will Align Road to a Topography. in our real life we use road coordinates/Levels as a constraint to alter and grad topography, but may be we need this tool to draw a bumpy walking path over a mountain where we can assign a landscape stone material to.
How it works:
A briefed tutorial:
- Create any shape of topography surface.
- Create a very simple Roof: Define slope property must be disabled “unchecked” Roof type is Foot print type The segments must be preferably of type ”Line or Arcs or Ellipses”, Spline can be used but might give you unexpected results.
- A new dialog will appear seeking some tweaking
Watch Revit finishing the long hours of Adjustments… these are examples of what it can do. The image below shows the results of using the tool. For more detail Right Click on Align Topo Icon and watch the video tutorials.
