Type: Events

LA CES approved?: No

Location(s): US


Lands Design is a landscaping software with BIM technology which works as plug-in for AutoCAD and for Rhino. The workshop follows the design process with Lands Design including Drawing tools, Terrain modelling tools, hardscape tools, vegetation tools, visualization tools, and documentation tools.

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 2000 species, each one with several representation modes in 3D and 2D, ready for rendering, exporting plans and 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

Note: The session on Feb 24th runs on AutoCAD environment.
