  1. This is a simple and consider a common scenario but not able to get a solution. I created a Digital site model using 3D Polygons that where converted to 3D loci. I am not happy at all with the resulting Contour site model. I realized that I needed to add additional 34D polygons data in order to enhance the resolution of the site mode. But I am not able to return to the original 3D polygon not the 3D loci data. I double click the edge of the contour site model, but all I get is the Site model parameter windows. I do not want to change the model using modifiers. I just want to recreate the site model.
  2. The crux of global design and BIM software developer Vectorworks, Inc.’s philosophy has always involved leveraging input and implementing product feedback from practicing architects, landscape designers, landscape architects and lighting designers, among other design professionals. To further this commitment, three new industry experts will be joining Vectorworks’ ever-growing product marketing team: Luc Lefebvre, senior architect product specialist, Jim Woodward, senior entertainment product specialist and Brian Nicholson, senior landscape product specialist. Led by Jeremy Powell, senior marketing director at Vectorworks, the broad team of industry experts acts as advocates for customers and the industry relating to the marketing and development of products. They provide one-on-one demonstrations of product capabilities, participate in professional association committees and visit firms in the field as a means to generate current insights for industry-specific tool development, as well as act as fountains of industry knowledge for other internal teams. Regarding the new additions, Powell said, “We are elated to welcome Luc, Jim and Brian to the Vectorworks family. With their diverse backgrounds and histories of excellence and service to the advancement of design within the architecture, landscape and entertainment industries, I’m sure they’ll make an immediate impact as champions of our software. And, as recently practicing designers, they’ll bring additional perspective to our team to ensure our products speak to the needs of designers.” Delve deeper into these new industry experts’ skills, backgrounds and career plans. Luc Lefebvre, OAQ, LEED AP BD+C, Senior Architect Product Specialist at Vectorworks Coming from a family of builders, Lefebvre knew he wanted to study architecture from adolescence. He kick-started his journey at Montreal University, where he received his undergraduate degree in architecture. Since then, he’s enjoyed more than 20 successful years in the business. Most recently, he served as project manager and BIM manager at King + King Architects in Syracuse, NY, where he focused on designing educational facilities and acted as a BIM consultant for both internal employees and other firms. Some of his past projects include Le Moyne College Master Plan and Madden School of Business, SUNY Cortland DeGroat Hall and SUNY Morrisville Mohawk Hall. In his office, Lefebrve was responsible for streamlining building information modeling processes and played an integral part in King + King Architects’ company-wide transition to BIM using Vectorworks Architect. This, in part, was his motivation to work for Vectorworks, as he enjoyed moving his firm from 2D to a 3D BIM workflow. Regarding his shift in careers, Lefebrve said, “I felt like I had just scratched the surface of Vectorworks’ capabilities, and I needed to know more about the software. I wanted to help other people experience that same excitement from learning how to do BIM projects with Vectorworks.” In his new position, he plans to narrow in on the BIM process, as he’s an ardent believer in Vectorworks software as the all-in-one design tool because it eliminates the need for further applications in the total design of a project. To explore Lefebrve’s BIM know-how, register for his upcoming webinar, “The Why and How of BIM Implementation,” on February 23 at 2:00 p.m. ET. Jim Woodward, Senior Entertainment Specialist at Vectorworks Woodward is another long-time Vectorworks supporter. With more than 35 years of experience in the entertainment design industry, Woodward began touring cross country as a lighting technician as a teenager and never looked back. He later opened his own design company in Boston, ExhibitLogic, with his wife, Shirley Woodward, where they tackled 3D visualization, rendering and modeling for a wide variety of industries, such as concerts, theatrical events, film, television, corporate events, trade shows, museums, architectural firms and retail stores. From spearheading concert-like booth and exhibit designs for the NAB Show, the Comdex convention and the International Broadcasting Convention (IBC) to touring with artists like Aerosmith, Neil Diamond and Yes, he’s had an illustrious career that has taken him around the world. Furthermore, he has guest lectured at places such as Boston University and Symphony Hall in Boston, as well as worked on productions such as “The Proposal” and “Ted 2.” While Woodward’s day-to-day was never the same in his career, there was one common thread: a passion for technology. He started out using Vectorworks Spotlight early on in its existence and immediately came to realize it as the go-to design software for entertainment design. As he dove deeper and deeper into the program, he discovered his passion for pushing the technology’s limits and became widely known in the entertainment industry as a Vectorworks expert. Eventually, he began regularly providing training and consulting services with the software. “After I gave my first Vectorworks demo, I was on cloud nine,” said Woodward. “All these years, I’d been under the stage, behind the stage, pretty much anywhere but on center stage. It was my first time in the spotlight, and from there, the rest was history.” With his Vectorworks skills so advanced at this point, it was only logical that this was his next career move. In his new role, he intends to be a liaison to help communicate industry trends back to the team at Vectorworks, as well as help intermediate designers take their drawing skills to the next level. To see Woodward in action, register for the upcoming webinar he’s hosting, “Adapting New Technologies to your Production Design Workflow,” on February 28 at 2:00 p.m. ET. Brian Nicholson, ASLA, PLA, GRP, LEED AP, Senior Landscape Specialist at Vectorworks Growing up in the mountains in southern Colorado, Nicholson was ingrained with an appreciation for nature and the outdoors early in his childhood. Thus, he received an undergraduate degree in landscape horticulture with a concentration in design/construction from Colorado State University. This degree, along with multiple summers of construction experience, prepared him to own and operate an award-winning residential design/build firm in Denver. He later earned a master of landscape architecture at the University of Colorado Denver and began practicing urban design and landscape architecture internationally. After laying the groundwork for his career in landscape architecture, Nicholson quickly discovered his inclination for sustainability. His passion for eco-friendly design shines through in projects from his past 18-plus years of experience in horticulture, landscape architecture and construction administration for firms like studioINSITE, RNL and Wenk Associates. Nicholson has applied his sustainable expertise to a variety of projects, including international community master plans, institutional campuses, municipal buildings, streetscapes and residential homes. For one of his most notable projects, he worked as the lead landscape designer for the National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s (NREL) Research Support Facility, which was designed to be net-zero energy and achieved LEED platinum certification and sustainable SITES gold certification. He also handled the site construction administration for additional projects across 35 acres on NREL’s campus. Currently, Nicholson maintains multiple landscape architect licenses and is an accredited green roof professional and LEED accredited professional. He also serves as the ASLA Colorado chapter president where he develops value-added programs for members and advocates for the chapter at the national level. Regarding his career move, Nicholson said, “Technology is my passion, whether it’s design software or products incorporated in my designs. I’m constantly looking at tools on the leading edge of sustainability, like Vectorworks, so I’ve had my eye on the company for a while.” As a result, when the job opened up, Nicholson said it was a perfect fit for where he wanted to take his career. Nicholson is very experienced with Revit, AutoCAD, SketchUp and the Adobe suite from prior roles, and he’s eager to dive into Landmark. His long-term goals are to expand the adoption of Landmark within the landscape architecture, design and urban planning industry.

  4. Hi, I have just reinstalled VW2016 Landmark on Windows 10/64 after a disk failure. At the end of the installation a GUI popped up prompting me to install tree, plant and surface models. It didn't work first time when I selected install all and when I clicked on the icon in the taskbar it disappeared and I can't see where to open it again Can anyone tell me please, How do I get it back to install the models I need? Thanks
  5. I have only just begun using the irrigtation tools of 2017. I have not been able to rotate irrigation component symbols (i.e. outlet object, valve, system components, etc.) when they are placed on a pipe. I have tried both the rotate tool and entering a rotation value into the rotation input of the OIP and the don't rotate.
  6. I'm a landscape architect looking for landmark, preferably, but also open to fundamentals. VW 2013 would be about as far back as I would consider purchasing right now. As of now, this is what I would safely say, I would offer: 2016 ...$1,900; 2015 ...$1,450; 2014 ...$1,050
  7. The way Landmark is set up means that once I draw a polygon I have to convert it to a landscape area, an irrigation design area, a hydrozone area, and an irrigation drip area. Having all of these different objects works up until the point at which the design starts changing. Then I have to edit the size/shape of each object individually every time the architect changes their design or the planning department asks for a change. This is a huge time waster in my office and incredibly mind numbing work. Can you either link all of the areas so editing the size/shape of one of them edits them all -or- allow one area to contain all of the same information?
  8. My current plant worksheets split the plants out by category (Ferns, Forbs, Graminoides, Shrubs, Trees, Vines). I would like to add a column that indicates the Planting Bed Name. I can add this bed location note within the Plant Settings dialog for the individual plant or mass. How is this accomplished when adding a Landscape Area with the specific plants defined? The plants within the bed show in the worksheet, but not the Bed name. How should the criteria be set up? (I read another post that described adding the name of the landscape area to the data tab on the OIP, and adding a formula of differentiating criteria but got lost on trying that one!)
  9. Is there a way to turn off the irrigation network updates that occur after every modification to any irrigation object? This update bogs down any changes to a crawl and is almost too cumbersome to handle! Is there a way to turn off the updates or like a worksheet, direct the updates when desired?
  10. Hi all, I am now trying to use the built in plant database and plant record system. I have created a lot of plants and everything seems to work well. I have one plant that shows on my planting schedule worksheet under column =('Plant Record'.'Symbol') with the wrong "Symbol", the only place I can see to change it is under the plant ID but when I do that it has no effect. I see no place to change the plant record "symbol". Any ideas? If I select the symbol and look in the object info data tab it shows under plant record (read only) , its the first line but I see no place I can edit that. I understand I can pull the plant ID instead of =('Plant Record'.'Symbol') but want to know why this doesn't work. Thanks.
  11. It is early yet and I am still fiddling with the irrigation tools, but so far...awesome! I did run into one snag. When setting up a drip zone and using a drip control kit with a pressure reducing filter, the calculations for the zone don't seem to account for pressure regulation, just pressure reduction. For example, traditionally my input pressure is 65 psi, but the zone kit would reduce that to an output pressure of 40 psi, no matter the input. In the software, it seems to work that the input pressure gets reduced by 40psi, leaving an output pressure of 25 psi in this example. Not what you want to ensure your calcs come out right. Any ideas?
  12. When using the Landscape Area tool I want to add plants to the Plant Information list (i.e. the plant mix) from my own plant .vwx file via the 'Edit Plant Information' pop up. At the moment I'm having to drag them in through the resource browser which is a bit of a slow process. Is there a way to add my plant .vwx file to the 'Edit Plant Information' pop up? Apologies if there is an existing answer to this - I have had a search but couldn't find anything.
