RE: "Our focus is architecture; we are not interested in roads and earthworks and sewers."

The design of land forms, particularly as they relate to our buildings, IS Architecture! We shouldn't expect artistic vision from the civil engineers. The mesh, with associated SEO operations, is the best way to visualize this design in ArchiCAD. Meshes are also good for nominally "flat" areas to work out details of wheelchair-accessible areas that must connect to a number of different external elevations.

We need Improvement in two very different areas:

1. Tools to develop and show our evolving earthwork designs in 3D.

2. The ability to send topographic documentation to our engineering consultants in a way that they can easily read it and incorporate our designs into their engineering documentation, using their own civil engineering software.
