I have used Vectorworks for years (for landscape architecture), but have just started to learn 3D Vectorworks and I am struggling! Hardscape tool. I understand how to draw a hardscape and I can set the level at one point and then set a gradient across the area. But what about if the hardscape has more complex levels? Not just a simple fall? For example it might be a patio which comes out from a building level at FFL but falls slightly steeper at one side from the other to match up with existing ground levels on the other side. Can I set individual levels for each corner of the hardscape area? Which is what I would do on as notes on a standard 2D drawing? Custom Kerb tool. I need to extend an existing parking area. I have used the custom kerb tool to draw the area and have made it the correct shape with kerbs on the sides that need kerbs and no kerb where it meets the existing car park surfacing. But can I set this area to varied levels. As above, I would like to be able to set individual levels in each corner. The existing car park is not level and does not fall evenly across it so I need to be able to match up with this. Is this possible?? Thanks,
Using Landmark for about two months now and running up against what seem to be software limitations. Are there tools in Landmark for creating complex roads/paths with custom profiles, ie various curb and crown profiles? This is a HUGE must for modern day landscape architects. More specifically, we need to be able to create roads with stations such as in the polyline road tool, but with the editability of the nurbs road tool. We also need vertical curve/alignment controls. The problems with current tools: -non-realistic relationship to site model/grading and lack of vertical curve controls -lack of profile controls, ie crown and curb/gutter profiles -lack of customizability and accuracy. We need to be able to create a road with various stations at varied elevations with various curband gutter profiles and customize turning radii at junctions.
