Parametric Undulating Hills & Pavements

Hi there,

I’m coming from a landscape architecture background, and I am wondering if there’s a way to create a parametric VisualARQ style for undulating hills/slopes (grassy knolls) as well as associate paving over these hills.

For the hills themselves I was considering using the Roof Styles (since slabs seem to require planar curves or surfaces) but I could not seem to figure out how to do the following:

  1. Firstly adhere the model to a given undulating surface and
  2. Secondly how to parametrically modify the thickness of the surface non-uniformly (soil volume)

For the paving, I resorted to using a Railing Style but I’m wondering if there’s a way to get a slab/roof to conform to an undulating curve (that follows the topography of the hills).

I hope I am making some sense, do let me know if there’s a way.


Hi @ervinelin
I recommend you to take a look at Lands Design ( which provides terrain modeling tools that may suit your requests, as well as parametric path objects and fences, that adapt to the terrain relief.
