I have been trying out different possible ways of blocking to follow the geometry. could anyone suggest me with any ideas ?

Now create block from four vertices

I assume due to the dimensions of the geometry. Is there any other way to move the vertices freely for a 3d block

I have uploaded the tin file. I am unable to create the block using the 4 vertices. Could you once have a look

With the help of edge mesh parameters
