Plant viewingin 3d

Recommended Posts

My client wants to see plants & flower vases in a top view 3d, but all I can generate are flat images in 3d view and vague circles in plan view; what am I doing wrong?

1) Please fill out your Signature -- see below.

 

2) You may need to turn on their display in your Layer Display settings.

It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using. You can add this info to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left. Doing so makes it always available, and this info is often key to providing a good suggestion

IF you have "3D Plants" in your Library Browser or you can download such a library from the Home Designer website you can then place a fully 3D plant symbol in your plan that will not look "flat' from different angles. What software do you have?

Pro 2018;  Library browser does not seem to have this; there's one in Bonus content  but It's not free & one doesn't know if it will work til it's paid for lol

You can also try 3DWarehouse.com to see if there are any useful 3D plant symbols there, just beware that those symbols are "FREE" but they have no quality control either, so quality wise you are on your own. Symbols you download there are then imported into HD Pro as symbols (look in the "File-Import Symbol" area). If you want fully 3D plants you do what you must, OK?

I'll try it  but you'd think in Pro that you wouldn't need to go else where and certainly that things wouldn't completely disappear in 3d top view, vases, plants, fire... is that normal?

I just started a new plan, placed several vases on the floor. Took a dollhouse view and set view direction to top view. Vases show up.

 

What exactly are you doing?

 

Posting images is usually helpful too.

Went to a different plan to experiment; did exactly as you did and threw in an armchair for good measure, all from the same Wayfair Trade catalogue as a control;

the only thing I see in top view is the armchair:( tried both the full and floor cameras just in case

How do I post an image? Do I attach a file?

I really appreciate your interest in helping btw:)

Have you tried items from the core library -- not the Wayfair catalog?

 

You can attach the plan file -- make sure it's not open in Pro.

 

Click choose files when you are replying. Images are the same.

Sorry for delay, I have trouble with files etc lol; nicely staged one has too many MB but you should get the idea with this one; there are plants (mostly from Chief Architect) & an armchair on the floor b!ut you'll see that the hanging basket and calla lilies (both CA) are visible! Maybe not all items have the same capability?

There are 2 of the same table, and 3 of the same chair in your plan.

 

No vases or flowers.

Getting things done that you want to be done is normal

That as a terrific idea, thank you, DJP!
