Plants Kit 2

Plants Kit 2

Win64, English

Laubwerk GmbH
The Laubwerk Plants Kit 2 contains ten temperate deciduous tree species in 36 variations each and the Laubwerk Player plugin for loading, efficient viewport feedback and manipulation.

General Usage Instructions

After installation you can directly access the plant content through the built-in plants browser. Loading a plant into the scene through the browser will create a procedural geometry object which gives you advanced options about different viewport modes, Level of Detail options, several variations and ages as well as different seasons.



Just start the installer that comes with the App Exchange download. The 3ds Max 2014-2016 plugin is installed in the appropriate folder, plugins for all other editions of 3ds Max will be installed in their program folder. The content files will by default be in installed to the Program Files/Laubwerk directory. This path is customizable. The uninstaller is accessible from the Start menu. Since some parts of the Plants Kit are installed into the programs folder, the installer will need admin privileges.
