The Plant Object and Landscape Area tools in Vectorworks® Landmark 2017 are tailor made for the site design professional to create, document, and communicate solutions for projects of all sizes. This presentation will demonstrate the robust 2D and 3D capabilities of these tools, which provide you the ability to visually convey your design intent in all phases of a site’s design while still evoking your personal style. From schematic phases to design development, Vectorworks 2017 allows you to easily add plant data that directly informs and parametrically controls plant objects.
Webinar attendees will be able to identify the benefits of new Plant Object controls such as placement modes, including individual, hedged, or massed plantings, as well as fixed and variable settings regulating attributes such as plant height, spread, and spacing. Furthermore, whether you work in 2D or in 3D, attendees will see that new technologies also make the construction documentation phase easier thanks to customizable label styles and built-in worksheets that provide dynamic and accurate material counts as planting plans are finalized.

Health, Safety and Welfare
1. Learn how to optimize individual and firm-wide workflows when producing design development and construction documents by using advanced plant placement settings.
2. Understand the visualization and analysis benefits of immediate 2D/3D representation of plants using parametric plant symbols that generate their own 3D plant graphics.
3. Realize efficiencies gained in design development by incorporating savable style settings subsequently used to replicate data, size, and spacing preferences on plants and landscape areas.
