    Good afternoon. This tool has saved me countless hours. Thank you for the ingenuity that has gone into this.

    I am still on a learning curve and have exhausted my known sources so I’m reaching out here for some assistance.

    I’m trying to create a site plan and all works except that the contours don’t appear to be created on the styles.

    I went back to the Garage example file and it works well there. I have the terrain assets in the External Earth MOG. It toggles on and off as expected. The hidden geometry turns on and off as well and the building renders but nothing shows up for the contours. Has anyone had similar trouble or a suggestion for  a fix?

    Thank you in advance.

    Joel!  Glad to hear that!  Thanks for the encouraging feedback…

    So… two possible causes off the top of my head.

    1.  Maybe your terrain is still on the default SketchUp “Location Terrain” layer, which ConDoc PRO will ignore/turn off.  Drill into your terrain and verify that all groups and geometry are on correct ConDoc layers.
    2. Maybe your terrain exists far away from the origin, and is not being sliced by the section planes.  To see the origin, right click on any axis and choose reset.  If it is grayed out you are already seeing the origin.  The site contours are generated from section planes dropped 25′ above and 25′ below the origin.  If your terrain sits 26′ above the origin, nothing will show.  If this is the case, just select all of your contour sections and move them up to where your model is.  Easy fix!

    Let me know if one of these solves it…
