Plant Z values on a DTM

Recommended Posts

I am using plants with image props as 3d graphics on a DTM. I would like the image props to be set to the Z value of the DTM. After finishing the design in 2d, I selected all of the plants and used the send to surface command. All of the plants now have a Z value that matches the DTM (in the OIP) but 3d model still has the image props at 0. Any ideas?

I'm not sure what happened exactly. After messing around with it a few more times I tried the old copy/paste into a new file trick. Everything is back on track. The only thing I can think of is that the dtm was moved using move>move 3d command at one point. When I test this in the new file by moving the dtm up or down the plants still conform to it using send to surface. Anyway, I am glad it is working now.
