My local Rhino dealer suggests using Land Design for creating topographic features. I am testing Land Design with intention to purchase. So far I haven’t found a way to generate contours from point cloud data. Any leads on the work flow?
If you already have the points in the model, just run the laTerrain command, select the insert parameters, close the insert dialog, and select the points as terrain input data.
Take a look at this tutorial about creating terrains: https://youtu.be/DvSJ7M_aZ7I?t=483
(In the video, the terrain input data are curves, but it works also with points)
