  1. 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  


  2. 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 -

  4. 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 -

  5. 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


  6. 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

  7. 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
