I did a quick work-around to get this one done, but am asking for future reference.
I have a finished surface that I am satisfied with, and do not want to change. I wanted to create a separate surface that abuts the finished surface, but is at a different elevation. When I create feature lines for the new surface, the existing finished surface gets the warning symbol telling me it has changed, even when I select objects instead of existing feature lines and type in different elevations. This alarmed me, so I quit the process and closed the draswing.
How can I create surfaces in the same drawing that are completely separate? Or, how can I create feature lines that don't attached to adjoining feature lines? (In the vast majority of situations I like that a new feature line will take on the elevation of a picked feature line)
Solved! Go to Solution.
I will just offset the feature line a very small amount, like .01 ft., then infill the gap.
Or what Allen said if I misunderstood what you are trying to do.
Create the Featurelines in a different Site. That way they shouldn't interact,
I did create a different new surface first, but did not create a new site. That makes sense. I figured there must be a relatively easy solution. Thanks.
