Resizing Plant Symbols

Recommended Posts

What is the easiest way to resize 3D plant symbols? I am having major issues in trying to figure out what I think should be a easy edit.

Edit: I should add that what I am trying to resize is a symbol linked to an image prop.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I could have sworn that I figured this out before, and imagine it applies to all symbols linked to image props.

Anyone?

Since this isn't exclusively a Landmark question I hope a cross posting in the general forums may illicit a response other than an angry moderator.

Not sure who's the angry moderator, but I have some ideas, but need to clarify...you resizing the plant symbols, image props on plant objects, or actual 3D plant objects?

Hey thanks for the replies Eric and Peter, I thought I was being shunned for some reason haha

It is an Xfrog plant, a cypress tree. I find most of the Xfrog Trees, though beautiful and probably properly scaled, to be way too large for presentation documents with my mostly residential scaled projects. I was trying to get maybe a 8' to 12' instead of 30' high tree and when rescaling it seems to just rescale the plane that the image is projected upon, thereby giving you a partial image of the original sized tree on the smaller X planes. Do you have to rescale both the symbol and the image prop?- I am somehow not getting this. I thought I had somehow stumbled upon the solution before but since this post (and the related one in General Forum) is being frequently viewed but not responded to maybe this is not possible, or I am just not being clear.

Trying to entourage this schematic design up just a bit more for presentation and Historic Review

Hi Tad, it is easy. First insert an XFrog tree into your drawing, then double click it. In the Edit Symbol dialog choose "3d Component" and hit OK (or return key). A new window will open. Just adjust the Height and Width numbers to scale the tree as desired, then exit. NOTE: this will change every instance of the symbol in the active file. To make more than one size you can duplicate the symbol and then edit the duplicate, etc..
