In the session we looked at dimension standards and site modifiers. In particular the attendees want to look at the differences between existing and proposed terrain.  Dimension standards are useful because they can control the look of your dimensions, giving you just the look that you require while site modifiers are important for modifying existing or proposed terrain.

  •  creating your own dimension standard
  • assigning a text style to your dimension standard
  • copying one of the existing dimension standards and editing it
  •  the difference between an existing site model and a proposed site model
  • creating a site modifier and applying it to an existing site model
  • checking cut and fill calculations on an existing site model
