Vectorworks trees with Enscape appearance

Recommended Posts


We are trying live renerding with Enscape and would like to update our Vectorworks trees to make them look good, also in Enscape.
When we import trees from Encape Material tool set, they are just Enscape_AssetPluginObjects, and we cannot add information about the tree. My idea was to edit the 3D type of the Vectorworks Plant and place the Enscape plugin there. This creates a tree in vectorworks that looks like the enscape tree, but with the Vectorworks attributes that we like, but this also makes the tree disapperar completely in Enscape.

How come?


Is it possible to "add" Enscape appearance ti Vectorworks trees?
Is it possible to adjust size (height, spread and canopy height) on tre vw-trees and also bring these adjustments to Enscape?


Below are the different kind of trees:

1: Vectorworks tree
2: Enscape tree
3: Enscape tree as 3D graphics Vectorworks tree


Vectorworks Front:


Vectorworks top:
Enscape front: (3rd one is missing)


Kind regards

Lisa and I are colleagues and we are soon going to use vectorworks to do some renderings with Enscape in our model. One other thing that would be much apprechiated if you look into this topic about how vegetations is visualized in VW and Enscape, is how landscape areas is appearing in Enscape. It would be amazing if landscape areas from VW would have a nicer look when we view them in Enscape. Right now they just appear as square figures and very simple. 

Thank you and hoping there is a solution!

@Dave Donley Hi Dave,
Thank you for your reply. Thats great to hear that you are working with Enscape to achieve that and then we know that it is not possible at the moment. It would be lovely if you can reach out to us when its possible if its not too far ahead in time! 


Best regards,

Hi Dave, 


I was wondering if you had any succes in adding enscape asset objects in a plant symbol? I am trying to figure out what is the best way to have the bim data connected to the 3d visualisations (without having to do extra work) 🙂


Best regards,
