    Default Retaining Wall Best Practice?

    So here is my problem with retaining walls.
    1) I need an assembly that can grade to the surface but has the option to override with profile of feature line.
    2) the face of the wall must show when visual style is set to "realistic"
    3) the backside of the wall must form a tidy surface for pasting into a datum surface whether in cut or fill condition
    4) the front and top of the wall must form a tidy surface for contour line generation
    5) must be able to cut engineering sections from the wall
    6) must have the basepoint of the wall centered so I can run it down an alignment of the centerline

    I cannot find a system that accomplished all this. I built an assembly with marked points for visualization, but no shapes for sections or I can use the wall subassembly but then I lose the visualization option and centerline option. I have never found a quick easy reliable way to create retaining wall with this software.

    One can make this type of retaining wall quite readily from Generic Links....
    see some of the tutorials here for an understanding of procedures involved

    I WISH I COULD BUT YOUTUBE IS BLOCKED IN CHINA. IT WOULD BE MUCH EASIER FOR ME TO EXAMINE THE ASSEMBLY AND SUBASSEMBLY CONFIGURATION AND REVERSE ENGINEER IT TO SUIT MY PROJECTS.

    I WOULD RATHER JUST DOWNLOAD AND EXPLORE THE ASSEMBLY. BTW, I ALREADY DISCOVERED THE ASSEMBLY I POSTED WILL ONLY WORK IN CUT CONDITION. IF IT SWITCHES TO FILL, THE DAYLIGHT AND DATUM SURFACES ARE INCORRECLY IN CUT. THIS CALLS FOR A CONDITIONAL SUBASSEMBLY UP THE HIERARCHY TO EVALUATE THE CONDITION OR I CAN RETURN TO S.A.C. AND TRY MY LUCK AGAIN
