3D plants

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

 

I am looking for a library of 3D plant images for Australian Designs.

 

Anybody know where I can find/buy some?

 

Thanks. 🙂

Thanks Bob.

I bought VW through Ozcad. So I assume I have all they have as there are some in my resources. However I need a lot more.

Hello BJR,

 

These are difficult to come by as the market is so small. The two that I know of are these:

 

http://www.envirographic.com (NZ company)

http://xfrog.com/category/libraries.html (US based. Scroll down to Oceania for Australian ones)

 

These are not 3D models but rather images you can use to create image props from. The best format to use is PNG (they generally come with a number of different formats). Always use the low resolution versions unless you intend to use the plant really close up.

 

If they lowered their prices I'm sure Vectorworks, Inc. could incorporate them into the local libraries. 

 

Cheers,

Peter

 

PS as you must know there are already quite a few Oz Image props in the library.

I am managing with Google for now. I was able to get 20+ plants today for a project. Either exact plants or very similar. Good enough for a basic 3D design anyway.
