  1. Materials have the ability to apply Top plan graphics, Textures and section graphics all can be unique per material. And from there you have general graphic control for each also.
  2. This can be doe using viewports. Copy your VP turn all layer off but the Turf. Then Set to Open GL. Then Apply Image Affects and set a blur to the turf edge. In the other VP turn off the turf layer and align both. This is a really Wonderfull graphics trick. Have fun!!
  3. I believe that Data Tag will solve most of your questions. It is programable for single and or multiple specific data. You can control and set the graphics. And you can push data to a record format for worksheet data. As far as the sculpture question that is a bit more detailed and I will play with it to see if I can find a solution.
  4. The Civil 3D file needs to be Exported as a DWG.
  5. One column should be your area. Then use your formula in another column but for the 650 use the area column cell (ie. A3 or B5 or the like)

    Plant data tags

    Select all three and go to "Change Plant Grouping" in the Landmark menu. This will group them.
  7. Yep, same way just use the Top/Plan Graphics dialog in the Plant Style.
  8. The thumbnail is only avail if the plant is in the working file. Import to your document and you can see it in the Resource Manager.
  9. 1) what was the site model origin data? 2) is there duplicate geometry? 3) could you post the file or if that is not possible could you PM me the file? There could be a number of things that cause this, but without seeing the file and understanding how it was generated it is just a shot in the dark. As for the labels you can select the site model and use the second mode of the reshape tool to move, delete or add labels.
  10. Most content is for charge through other resources. But if you get imagery of said plants, knock out the background in photoshop, or find the image with no background online, you can make your own image props and place them in the 3D graphics of the plant. This process is fast and free.

    Plant list

    @Landartma almost! you do not need to set them in a template, primarily you want them in a favorites or a workgroup library. and yes once you attach data through the "get plant data" dialog it will enter all the info for you. You do however have to set the size and height but VW will give you the listed sizes per that plants info you connected to. One these are set you can save all of these and never have to go through that process again.
