    @bgoff can you develop some samples in a VWX file and share it ?

    Data tag for existing trees

    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 -

    Curtain Wall Tool

    one reason for the fence/railing tool is that it spaces posts evenly across a segment of fence

    Curtain Wall Tool

    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
  5. 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

    Vertical Bar Railing

    I made a wishlist request and would appreciate more input on the request for VW to consider

    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
  10. 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
  14. 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 ??
  15. until

    this question is based on watching the webinar and I am hoping to get some help thank you
