Modeling Site Context

In the previous sections of this chapter, you learned about the fundamental tools for editing and modifying model elements. Another set of tools you should become familiar with are the site tools. They allow you to create a context within which your building models can be situated. For example, a toposurface will create a hatched area when you view your building in a section, and it will function as a hosting surface for site components such as trees, shrubs, parking spaces, accessories, and vehicles (Figure 3.25).
