  1. After dissecting the file (thank you for sharing) I need to learn more about subdivisions Your approach is very much like construction methods (especially the plum bob symbols) Hopefully youtube will be a resource
  2. @digitalcarbon this looks brilliant, can you elaborate on the process/workflow ?
  3. We wanted simple field installation and future maintenance with a single emitter type and adding multiple emitters for each type of plant. So would you place emitters first and the 'snake' the drip line to each emitter ? OR 'snake' the drip line and then place emitters
  4. Brian- I first posted this to the General Discussion section of the forum and would be happy if you remove it from there and just keep this on Site Design
  5. Thank you Brian Using the drip pipe makes sense in lieu of an irrigation lateral for the emitter symbol and connecting the emitters throughout the planting area Would there be a potential error placing the correct number of emitters at each plant ? Live Data Viz also makes sense - I have not used this feature
  6. We are planning to develop symbols of emitters for plants (for easy placement on drawings): 1 and 5 gallon container plants receive 2 emitters 15 gallon container plants receive 3 emitters The workflow is to use symbols (with emitters and laterals with the correct classes in the symbol) that would be placed at plant locations. Once the symbols are placed, the symbols would be converted to group and then ungrouped and then at least one emitter at each plant is connected to a valve using the irrigation lateral tool - the result is all emitters and laterals will be part of the terrific VW irrigation schedules. When the plan needs revising, the emitters would be shifted as needed manually (without the use of the symbols). I look forward to critiques -

  8. @ptoner how do you disconnect from the network ?
  9. I believe you will find the custom size in the plant style of each plant
  10. @NoemiM and everyone, thank you forth responses. You have provided some terrific ideas and I will follow up after I have time to develop a process.
  11. @bgoff can you develop some samples in a VWX file and share it ?
  12. The formatting flexibility with data tags is incredible and a great tool for existing tree info used in a traditional plan view It makes you think about other creative uses for the data tag Thank you J Wallace and Tony for the inspiration -
  13. one reason for the fence/railing tool is that it spaces posts evenly across a segment of fence
  14. zoomer- we would all appreciate a review of fences with offset elements a fence with continuous stringers on one side of posts- do you offset the posts as a profile or symbol or offset the stringers as a symbol or profile ? fences work for fitting them to terrain versus flat slabs
  15. 1. using color for various tools/pipes/areas is your friend- 2. create a system component that is labelled 'start point' ? then the component can be reused and it will be counted as part of your worksheet for easy checking that all drip areas have one.
