General Usage Instructions

The Planting F/X Add-On adds a whole set of tools to your Autodesk® AutoCAD® interface making your job working with Landscape Architecture even easier. 

Create a New Project - The first step in working with our software is creating a new Land F/X project. Each project is essentially a database that you associate with an AutoCAD DWG.

Set the Scale & Units - The scale of your DWG plays a critical role in how information and symbols are displayed, how they will appear in the final product, and, in the end, how they will plot. 

Planting Preferences - Our preferences settings allow you to configure our software quickly to work closer to the way you work. The Planting Preferences screen includes settings for plant codes, symbols and labels. 

Plant Size Preferences - The Plant Sizes Preferences screen controls the appearance of your plant schedule.

Text Styles for Plant Labels & Schedules - Our software includes a system of logical Text Styles. Each Text Style applies several specifications (including font and point size) to specific usage of text within Planting.

Adding & Placing Plants - Build your plant palette in minutes, assign your plants with data and symbols, and jump right into planting design.

Specialized Tools for Placing Plants - Placing plants has never been easier. We've developed a variety of useful tools designed specifically for placing plants in your DWG's.

Labeling Plants - Effective planting designs require plant callouts that clearly state, at a minimum, the quantity and species of plants within different groupings.

Plant Schedules - A Plant Schedule counts and lists all plants used in your DWG. Schedules can list plants by symbols or code or both. Our tool allows numerous options to include, or not include, cost, size, quantity and spacing of plants.

Photo Callouts - Our Photo Callout tool links to a Google Images search for a specific plant, you can then select a photo to place in your DWG to call out the plant. 

Color Render - Our Color Render tool creates a colorized plan of your design by swapping out your existing plant symbols for colorized symbols. It also colorizes your Shrub Areas and groundcovers.

Bring Your Designs Into 3D - Your installation includes a seamless connection between CAD and 3D modeling programs Sketchup, Rhino and Autodesk® Revit® through our 3D Connection Tool. Accessed in CAD this feature allows you to bring a CAD design and an associated Land F/X project into a 3D model. It also allows you to bring a 3D model and an associated project, from Sketchup, Rhino or Revit into CAD.
