When it comes to adding a site to a model, the Autodesk® Revit® Architecture software is well equipped to take on the challenge. However, in many cases Revit is dependent on Autodesk® AutoCAD® or MicroStation to provide a real-case scenario for a site that can be imported (similar to importing a plan or a detail). Fortunately, Revit provides tools to add a topographic surface to an imported CAD site.
This chapter covers the following topics:
- Adding a site in Revit
- Splitting the surface
- Creating subregions
- Adding site components
- Adding building pads to displace earth
- Adding a property line
- Creating a toposurface by instance
- Creating a graded region
