GeoMedia 3D building footprints displayed on hillside is wrong

Question

How do I display GeoMedia 3D building/footprints models displayed on a hillside?

Answer

There are instances where one or more corners of a model base may be "above" the surface, while the other corners are on or below the surface (usually due to placement on a hillside or other sloping terrain). 

 

In these cases, the model will need to be lowered to fully "sink" the base into the surface. In some cases a better surface model may be needed.  

 

Use the Style Properties>3D Settings>Altitude options to offset the Z value as a negative value to sink the building footprint into the surface.

 

In either case, the base of a model is not automatically tapered to perfectly align with the contours of the given surface area and may require further adjustments.
