  1. @michaelk I guess yes I do it every day! I also prepare food in ice counters (you know how the frozen tundra works!!! ) 🙂 @hollister design Studio figured you would like that!
  2. Also I am not a fan of using floors for countertops. Why??? Because do you like preparing food on the floor?? 🙂
  3. @hollister design Studio use standard 2D poly to shape the countertop. use any shape to create the hole or holes. Extrude shape. This allows for easy manipulation of original geometry and addition or subtraction of any shape to the countertop. As a note I then create auto hybrid. and create a symbol. Just my workflow.
  4. If you place it on a site model it will be fine.
  5. my guess is you were placing a single plant using the ply vertex mode of the plant tool. this is the second option on the mode bar and when placing a single plant people often multi click to end. This will place two plants on top of each other. Thus 2 plants instead of one.
  6. you need to use a cropped image with a background either a single color or an alpha channel. It looks like you are using only images not making them image props.

    Create Site Model

    you need to have lines for contours, set them to elevation then use those to create site model.
  8. That would require more than just a pad. You would need to use other modifiers to create the slope you would like along with modifiers to grade the overall water run to the bioswale. use grade lines, pads, and contour lines. If there are other hardscape and walls those also could be used.
  9. Is it world or page based? are you creating pdf for a sheet layer or a design layer?
  10. extrude these and apply a texture. use create hybrid to create 2D look you want. or create a symbol of the extrude and add 2D graphics by pasting the original line work. No need to use hardscape.
  11. select all plants and apply the tick style in the OIP. If your plants are alone on a layer or more then you can select only those layers.
  12. The plant geometry is not centered on zero zero. If you center the graphics the tick mark will show centered.
  13. Is the site model looking to the layer that the stakes are on? Check Site Model Settings> General (at the bottom check layers)
  14. Hmmm! I do this all the time! and I will even create terrain on the roof. I would wonder what it is on your machine that makes it crash.

    Plants again

    the plant symbols have too many vertices in them. Just for kicks, try changing the plant graphics to just a color circle and see if that helps.
