Has anyone done a accurate site plan with sidewalks and figured out a way to do it right? Its a long explanation to explain why its difficult, but if you have tried, then you know what I'm talkin about.
My own lame solution is to draw the contours (including sidewalk contours)
in DWG format then import. I often need to add/subtract some of the points
to finesse the results. I keep thinking that the "points" in REVIT will
become more intuitive to me, but they haven't yet. I don't use it too
often, so perhaps it's just a matter of practice? I'm just more comfortable
drawing the PLINE instead of the triangulated surface. In some instance I
am also using the REVIT topo for everything except the site plan
representation. Sorry I don't have a better answer.

Have you tried going through the tutorials on Using Site Tools that comes
with Revit 5.1 or 6.0, which is the 33mb PDF file. If you do not have a
copy you can download it for the Autodesk Revit website:
Download and License
GOTO: Download Revit
You can also download the latest version of Autodesk Revit.
Select the following : Autodesk Revit 6.0 Content and Libraries
Download Autodesk Revit 6.0 Content and Libraries. These files are typically
downloaded automatically for you by the program installer.
Then download Revit Help and Training Files .chm files (cab - 33.4 Mb)
Usually installed to: C:\Program Files\Autodesk Revit 6.0\Program\
There are over 900 pages of tutorials in the PDF tutorials. Check it out.
