Visualizations are a key component of landscape design and have been from day one. Professionals approach this process differently, and some continue to embrace the more time-intensive hand-drawn methods, while others utilize CAD, 3D modeling, and image-editing technology. Although each of these are successful to some degree, revisions are inevitable, and the time it takes to reconstruct these illustrations in multiple platforms could be greatly reduced by fine-tuning the design in one application.

Witness the power and efficiencies gained by 3D modeling in Vectorworks® Landmark as Tony Kostreski, landscape product marketing specialist at Vectorworks, Inc., builds various features for a residential garden using a combination of landscape-specific tools and commonly used 3D modeling processes. Attendees will learn how to maximize communication for the success of any project and why the mention of "revisions" shouldn't cause fear of going over budget.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Understand the benefits of using landscape-specific tools during your 3D modeling workflow.
  • Learn and master commonly-used 3D modeling processes to create custom objects.
  • Explore how designers communicate with clients and contractors in a more immersive way using virtual reality with the Vectorworks Nomad app.
  • Recognize the benefits of reducing revision challenges by working in a single file through modeling and rendering.
