Add Spot Levels to a Topography Section - A Workaround

A slight annoyance in Revit is that you can't add a spot level to a topography in a section view. The following video shows a workaround for this. Essentially, you isolate the topography in the view and export to a dwg file. In Autocad, delete everything except the hatch pattern. This is then re-linked ('Current View Only' & 'Auto Origin to Origin') back into Revit as a 'background'. Revit will now allow you to place spot levels onto the hatch pattern. If the topography changes, you'll need to repeat the process
