How do I draw a rough edge for a plant area?

Recommended Posts

I would like to represent an area of junipers with a rough edge. Can I sketch the area and then convert the line to various standard rough edges, or textures, or...?

Hi Mark

Draw your area using the Landscape Area tool. That has various edge styles which you can customize to suit your taste. If you have already created a plant object to represent your Juniper, you could add that plant to the Landscape Area, specifying the planting density that you want, and have Vectorworks count them for you.

When using sketchy edges on a Landscape Area, I do advise you to keep your design layer at the same scale as the ultimate viewport so that the edges will print as you expect.

Hope that helps.

Two years later... I lot has happened in the last few years.

Thanks! I look forward to implementing this on the new project I mentioned in another post.
