This webinar focused on the Terrain module (Terrain Tools), for site design and grading. Site design is made easy in Terrain with intuitive grading functions, feature creation and design of polygonal shapes such as ponds, pads, pits etc. We explored a variety of terrain functions including: digital terrain modeling, contouring, volume and earthwork calculations, design, grading, visualization and report generation, for use in a dam site design project.
