  1. 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.

    advice on creating new plants

    Thank you Bryan for sharing I like your dispatching newly developed items to a place to get access to them Are you organized enough to place new plants into the VW plant database when you create them ?

    advice on creating new plants

    Has someone a workflow for saving a new plant and having it as part of the VW plant database ? I have created several new plants and when asked about saving the plant I quickly click on save and for no good reason, I label them 'test' Now I have many text files with plant info and they are in my application support folder in my HD library labeled 'test' with a number (see screen shot) Navigating the dialog box for saving the plant is the key - I assume The help manual does not appear to guide this solution

    fence railing tool upgrade

    I assume this issue has been raised before but wanted to make a fresh request Is there a way to search the wishlist for previous fence requests ? I looked and did not see a way
  6. improve the fence railing tool to add offsets for infill or posts so more traditional one sided fences and rails can be developed

    Site Model Contour editing

    I am not sure this will work for this situation, but yesterday's VW webinar by Danilo Maffei showed a simple use of stakes and working over an aerial image to develop a site model. The contours developed were crude and fast and I assume using a smoothing tool and additional stakes may be a good solution to add detail - I recommend the webinar - it was terrific

    SITE MODEL Road/pathway on slope

    Could the road be: 1. a combination of T intersections and straight sections, set apart from each other by 1/2" with grades set as needed 2. drawn using the custom kerb tool I wish I had time to work on a VW file study of these ideas

    3D plants

    Julian Carr - Ozcad - check his website for plants from Australia
  10. data tags- we have started using them in lieu of callouts and linking their info to annotations and takeoffs for cost estimating data tags are powerful and should have multiple uses/features adding a database of notes could be coordinated ??

    Fitting a slab to the slope of another slab

    this sounds like Tony Kositsky, VW employee/landscape architect, should weigh in here

    Gerard- in VW preferences, select good performance and compatibility and see if that solves the issue Thank you VW Tech Support for the help with this

    Fitting a slab to the slope of another slab

    Could you create a 3D polygon (profile) with a sloped base and horizontal top and sides and extrude it across the lower slab ? If the base changes you would adjust the profile as needed
