Common Issues with Autodesk Site Designer and how to fix them

If you are having problems, try manually loading families like this:
"Hi Russ.
I believe the issue is that you first need to load the Site Designer families (from C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\Site Designer for Revit 2015\Library\) into the project before you try creating roads/walks/etc., and then convert your toposurface into a Base Toposurface (via the Set Base Toposurface  button).  After that, I was able to create roads, walks, retaining walls, etc.
Hope that helps.

or it might be visibility related:
"got it working.  I have mass unticked by default in visibility view graphics.  all works after turning on mass.

(from the same thread)

I previously posted about Site Designer here.

You can also download an interesting review by Aaron Maller here (link from RFO).

You should be able to find your manual here:
"C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\ApplicationPlugins\AutodeskSiteDesignerForRevit2015.bundle\Contents\Site Designer for Revit 2015 Reference Manual.pdf"
