Introduction to Planting – Planting in Vectorworks is very important for designers and landscapers. But not every object in Vectorworks is a plant, only specific objects can be thought of as plants. A plant is to the combination of 2D graphics 3D graphics and data. These are combined together to create what Vectorworks calls a plant.
In the first part of this we will be looking at how a plant is made in general terms, then we will look at the different methods for placing plants. There are four main ways of placing plants. We will give each of these methods along with some tips on when they are most suitable.
Next we will be looking in detail at how to create a plant. We will look at the data, the 2D graphics and 3D graphics to see how these are combined into a plant object, along with tips on the best use of classes for plants.
Finally we will be looking at the Plant Database. Some users confuse this with a plant library, but it is different.
