Tile/Image attribute

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I want to create a fill attribute that I can use to fill a landscape area to show mixed planting in top/plan view. For this, I have inserted certain plants and now want to create a fill attribute that shows only 2D graphics of these plants. What's the best way to go about it? The idea is to completely get rid of 3D component of plants that is making the file big and also easy to use as a resource to fill landscape area in general.

Thank you for the help.

You could enter the plant symbols to copy the 2D graphics and paste in a group and create a Tile. This tile could be used in B&W or color.

As for creation. Select all your plants copy to another location (not necessary if you don't need the original). With all selected "convert to group" then ungroup. Select all lifework and copy it. Then create a "Tile" and paste the lifework in the tile edit window. Adjust your tile repeats and you now have a tile you can use.

Some Qs

1. What does grouping and then ungrouping does?

2. What do you mean by select all lifework? How do you do that?

3. My tile is just showing some lines that I probably used to insert plants..

You need to "convert to group" under the Modify> Convert> Convert to group. And I meant Line work. Sorry Typo.
