This new Landscape Track focuses on creating the landscape in BIM from setting up terrains, roads, structures, hardscape in external works to creating softscape planting and furnishing. It covers the key elements of BIM for Landscape Architecture, guiding through the steps for importing 2D/CAD files of Landscape Plans, modifying landforms and 3Dobjects, quantifying Earthworks, Materials, Plant Schedules and managing Projects with associated documentation, plus basic data extraction from the Landscape Model.
Recommended for those who have completed the ArchiCAD Essentials or have basic experience with using ArchiCAD software tools and creating Architectural Models.
