Hardscape components


We were hoping that in V2016, Landmark would add components to the hardscape plug-in objects, similar to those of walls and now roofs in architect. It would be great, when placing a hardscape, to include in one object, the entire profile of a hardscape installation assignable by class.

This would include, as part of the "slab" thickness, the base materials, any fabrics/geotextiles, drainage, etc. With the new site modifier features of hardscape objects in v2016, site models would respond to the total thickness of a hardscape installation and therefore provide more accurate excavation numbers as a result of base thicknesses. Schedules could then calculate quantities of base materials without having a derivative or hardscape areas. This could also then be used to create simple, self-correcting details for variable hardscape installations.

I could image a similar engine backing other Landmark plug-in objects such as landscape walls, roads, etc.

In addition, some other considerations for future hardscape tool and operability.

1. The ability to select multiple hardscape objects and still be able to edit the Hardscape Settings...

2. If including a border for the hardscape object, make the border color respond to By Class setting rather than a manual picked color that doesn't respond to a change in the class attributes for the border class.

3. Scoring lines for curved paths. The ability to provide scoring lines for pathway hardscape objects that are perpendicular to the centerline at a given interval.

Upvoted. A hardscape is a complete assembly profile of components like a wall. It is frustrating to make section cuts and not have components represented in type and thickness the way wall objects are.
