BIM and Landscape Modelling with Lands Design Software

Start Date
End Date
Lands Design is a landscaping software with BIM technology, which works as plugins for AutoCAD and for Rhino.
The workshop follows the design process with Lands Design by reviewing following tools: Drawing, Terrain modelling, hardscape, Vegetation, Visualization, and BIM documentation.

The main topics are:
- Terrain modelling tools: how to generate terrain from point clouds, 3D curves, or import them from the cloud.
- Vegetation: How to integrate plant species in landscape projects with no limits of shape and design. The plant database includes more than 8000 species, each one with several display modes in 3D and 2D, ready for rendering, enhanced with season and growth simulation.
-2D Documentation tools for generating setting out plans, zones, quantity take-offs and add custom data to landscape elements.
- Modelling tools: hardscape, block library, etc.
- Animation tools
