Generating 2D Shadow for Existing Trees

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I was wondering if anyone is able to advise if it's possible to add custom functionality to Existing Tree objects to create an indicative 2D shadow. In the UK, the British Standard suggest "plotting a segment, with a radius from the centre of the stem equal to the height of the tree, drawn from due north-west to due east". It can easily be drawn and added manually, but on sites with numerous trees this is quite laborious.


If anyone has already created a script or otherwise such a functionality, I would be chuffed to bits to get some help with this. 


Are there any such requirements or guidance in other countries? What is required? Perhaps we could formulate a recommendation in the Roadmap?
