Floor plan cut plane and multiple buildings on a sloping site

Arcadia

I am working on a unit development. As per my usual practise I have the individual dwellings in their own pln file then a create a hotlink of each and import them into a 'master' pln where I create the site plan and do the terrain modelling etc. In this case there is about 4m height difference between the first and last building and no matter how much I play around with the floor plan cut plan I just can't find a setting that allows me to show all buildings with the correct cut showing windows and walls fills as they should. I could put them all on the same level and just treat it as a 2D site plan and calculate out all the earthworks and show them in 2D but I wanted to model the site for both accuracy and also so that I can share the model with the client.

 

Is there some way around this problem other than using composite walls set to symbolic cut? (I prefer and normally use complex walls).

Split and stitch your site plan into multiple views with varying FPCP settings.

Yes I guess this would work but it does make the documentation process more of a pain. I'll consider it though - thanks!
