Setting up your mesh

Before we start to setup our mesh, we need to know what height to set it out to.  Have a look at your Surveyors information and find the lowest height supplied.  In my example below the lowest height contour is 50.5m

As a rule of thumb, I always round down to the nearest whole number.  In this case I will use 50.0m
Now I go to my zero story and open up the Mesh settings. Under Geometry and Positioning, the top value I leave at 1000mm.  This is the sectional depth of the Mesh I am about to create.  Underneath that I enter in the value of 50000mm.  This will position my 1m thick Mesh 50m above sea level.
