Not sure if this is possible with Civil 3D, but any help would be appreciated. I have a grid boring pattern (x,y) that I've been given wtih a top of rock and bottom of rock (z) elevation at each boring location. I created two surfaces called top & bottom. What I would like to do is to be able to "shade" or "hatch" the area between these two surfaces in order to show a 3d solid mass that I can view in 3d orbit. I know how to generate the volume between these two surfaces, however, this appears as a "flat" surface when I view it in a 3d orbit. I'd like to view this volume as a solid mass. Is this possible?
Solved! Go to Solution.
If this is simply to shade it in 3d orbit then make two surfaces. One for the bottom and one that has the top surface elevations and the OUTER border elevations of the bottom. The two surfaces will appear as a 3d solid in a 3d view. Give me a min. and I'll attach a file that depicts a debris pile with surfaces.
Sorry the surfaces needed to be promoted for you.
