Mar 27, 2019
Recommended By:  Stephen E. Meehan with Stephen E. Meehan Landscape Architect

In this video, we cover a simple workflow to create a 3D terrain using Land F/X’s smart Spot Elevation callouts. We use the SketchUp extensions Guide Tools and Toposhaper to complete these quick steps, with the option of creating contours of your grading plan for exporting back to your 2D CAD drawing.


Find out more about the Spot Elevation tool and the 3D Connection Extension for SketchUp.
