  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.
  16. 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 ?
  17. 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
  18. I made a wishlist request and would appreciate more input on the request for VW to consider
  19. 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
  20. improve the fence railing tool to add offsets for infill or posts so more traditional one sided fences and rails can be developed
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. Julian Carr - Ozcad - check his website for plants from Australia
  24. 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 ??
  25. until

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