It sounds like some of the grading may try to daylight beyond the boundaries
of your surface. Perhaps posting the drawing will help us determine the

I had a look at the drawing but I don't see what you are trying to grade
from - everything is at a 0.0 elev. You'll need a polyline around the
building at the correct pad elevation. The surface elevs are around 850, so
your building pad should be somewhere in the 800's.
Even if you have that, your surface has a hole in it so there will still be
a problem with trying to project a 3:1 slope to the surface..

Did you should eliminate the hole in the surface?
What is your building pad elevation?

You are right about the pad... and the hole. FIXED! works!
What do you do if you have a proposed and existing surface and you want to see them both with with the cut and fill if on the new grading of the site in 3d? do i need to mask the proposed on the existing?
