Title: Terrain around retaining wall
Post by: TimS on February 09, 2016, 08:05:55 pm
I am new to Lumion and looking to work with a model that has a walkout basement. This makes it necessary to use a retaining wall for the grade to accomplish this.  When I try to work with the grade in Lumion, it is not precise and wants to bring up the grade on both sides of the retaining wall.  Is there a better way to do this?

Hi Tim, which version of Lumion are you using?

I just working with the Demo (5.3) for now.  If all goes well, I'll pick up 6 very soon.

Thanks for the articles/tips.  I created the local terrain in my cad system and imported to Lumion.  That seems to work well.
