http://www.acbestpractices.com/quickstart - Learn how to build a terrain model in ArchiCAD using the mesh tool, in this excerpt from Eric Bobrow's Best Practices QuickStart Course.

It is the 28th out of 29 lessons, the longest one in the entire series.

This meaty 49 minute lesson will teach you how to import a DWG survey file into a Worksheet, then use it as a Trace Reference to build a terrain mesh. You'll be able to model your site in the most expeditious and efficient sequence when you follow the method I share with you.

If you've ever struggled to build a terrain model, or made one that was overly detailed and slowed down your 3D views, this detailed training will point you in the right direction. Even if you have never used the mesh tool, you'll learn enough to get started, and after watching the lesson you'll be able to do it yourself!

-- BONUS: Sample files you can use to follow along, in both Imperial and Metric systems. This is real training, not just tips and tricks!
