Are there any 'random' slate patterns/symbols etc. included in the VW10 Landmark package? If not, any tips on creating objects that interlock?

Look at the symbols in Arch Tiles library file. (If you have Arch with Landmark)

I don't know if that's what you are looking for or not.

Where is that located?

What would be great is images like those in the stone textures. Is there any way to use them in 2D?

The Arch Tiles is a library file in Object Libraries if you have VW ARchitect.

You use those tile symbols in conjunction wtih the Tile command to fill a 2d polygon with that symbol. It's similar to that of a hatch, but it is not limited to lines.

VW 10 allows you to fill 2d objects with images.

If you are using Vw 10 and have RW, you should have a textures folder. Add this to your Resouce Browser Favorite's List.

SOme of the libray files have images that match the texture themselves. You can then apply the images to the 2d elements in your drawing in the same fashion applying textures to 3d objects works.

You apply the image to the 2d object thru the Attributes palette, fill bucket drop down.

I don't have Architect. Some of the texture resources do have images; most do not. It seems easy enough to include the images used to make the textures in an update. I am going to post this to suggestions.

The textures that are made with images, have an image section with them. Those that were not made from an image file, do not.

Not all textures are image based textures.

shasta, VW11 Landmark has the new "hardscape" object that not only has random flagstone, but also allows multiple combinations of colors and hatching patterns to fill your object. It also allows borders that can be hatched or coursed.

I have been trying for ages to add images as a new resource in documents, but the scale always goes bananas 1 metre bricks don't work! The scale as symbols works but not once I import a jpg. I have tried everything changing resolutions, changing the actual image size - can anyone help?

These include images downloaded for VW
