replacing Symbols with Plant Objects

Recommended Posts

What is the fastest way to do this?

I received an AutoCAD file with a ton of different blocks used to represent various plants.  I would like these to become Plant Objects.

Plant are symbols (red symbols - symbols that know they are parametric objects), so you can select the blocks and choose Modify > Convert > Replace with Symbol.
You could probably replace them all with the same plant symbol, and then select groups of plants and choose Replace Plant on the Object Info palette as you choose different plants.

@Tamsin Slatter Thanks Tamsin, that was easy 🙂  Select Similar, with its ever so appropriate magic wand icon, and Replace with Symbol to the rescue!
