Definition: A mountain is a large land-form that stretches above the surrounding land in a limited area, usually in the form of a peak. A mountain is generally steeper than a hill.
1. Draw/plot contour lines.
2. Delete any faces that formed when lines were drawn.
3. To adjust the elevation of contour lines, use the Move Tool. Click a specific contour line that you want to adjust, then click the Move Tool> press the up key button (keyboard)> pull-up the selected contour line or object vertically (it is locked to the blue axis). You can add a specific height, if you wish, in the Measurements Toolbar. Type the value in the Measurements Toolbar (SketchUp will automatically display what you type in the Measurements Toolbar), and press the Enter (Microsoft Windows) or Return (Mac OS X) key.
4. Ctrl+A (select everything that isn’t hidden). Using the Sandbox Tool, click the icon ‘From Contours’ or go to Draw>Sandbox>From Contours. This process will automatically generate 3D object(s).
This is the result.
5. Using the Move Tool, drag the 3D model away from the contour lines.
6. Apply grass texture using Paint Bucket Tool.
