PAVE YOUR WAY TO SUCCESS
With the HARDSCAPE TOOL IN Vectorworks LANDMARK
In this free webinar, Tamsin Slatter explores the Hardscape tool.
Tamsin showed how in earlier releases of Vectorworks Landmark, the Hardscape tool included 2D and 3D representations of hard landscaping, along with the ability to create schedules. However, it was not able to display radial paving, or paving patterns that follow the direction of a path. It was also not able to slope in a 3D view, and therefore not able to accurately represent changes in level.
In the 2016 release of this CAD software purpose-built for Landscape Designers, hardscapes can show component buildup, using built-in Roof Styles. Hardscape objects can slope according to a variety of parameters to give accurate representation of levels. For presentation, there are also radial paving options and paving patterns that can follow the direction of the path. Find out how to make the most of the Hardscape content library, designed and created by Kate Pearson, here at Design Software Solutions. This content library is easily accessed from the tool bar after selecting the Hardscape tool, negating the need to use the Resource Browser. It includes saved Hardscape styles that include components, roof styles, Renderworks Textures for paving. There are hatches that are mapped accurately to the textures for display in a hidden line render or section viewport.
