water areas within designed dams and channels

AIM 2013

How do you present designed dams and water channels in AIM?

In my first attempt I am only dealing with dams.

The dams have been designed in C3D using C3D grading.

I opted not to use IMX to represent the damns as I wanted to make a clear difference between the Terrain and the dam regions.

Instead, I used FBX. Imported into AIM as Buildings.

I think this is already wrong as AIM seems to avoid buidlings when creating water areas manually.

What AIM object do I use to represent dams and channels - needing to contain water areas?

Thx,

Kevin.

 

the solution is to make deep holes in the terrain source data, way deeper than the designed surface..

: ) I now have instant cool water waves - thank you Autodesk : )

oops ... it was the holes in the NGL surface that caused the 'non-water' problem.. I made holes where the dams are..

now I filled in the holes and the water is working correctly .. even with the dams represented as buildings..

almost there ..
