Copy Plant along Path in Revit Planting F/X

Copy Plant along Path in Revit Planting F/X

When you want to place several plants in Revit quickly, use the Copy along tool in our Planting F/X for Revit plugin.

 

As with our Copy along tools in CAD, the duplicate plants will receive the same ready-made symbol as the original copied plant and will all connect to the correct data for quick callouts and schedules.

 

Planting F/X for Revit is still in the Beta testing phase but is improving all the time. Beta testing is currently closed to those with active Planting F/X or Irrigation F/X licenses. Contact us for more information if you'd like to participate in beta testing. The plugin is not yet open for trial use.

Copy along Path Overview

Our Copy along tool copies a Land F/X plant family you select in your drawing and places the copies along an existing arc, line, or spline, such as an offset to the border of a pathway or planter. The copies will place exactly along the selected arc or spline – as of now, not offset as with our AutoCAD plugin.

Note that you will need to select an already-placed arc or spline.

 

Open the Copy along tool:

 

Planting F/X ribbon in Revit, Copy along button

 

Planting F/X ribbon, Copy along button

 

 

 

You'll be prompted to select a plant. Select a tree or shrub in your drawing. This symbol should be off to the side – it won't be needed as one of the copies along the path, and you can delete it later if necessary.

 

 

 

Now select an arc, line, or spline to serve as your path for the copied plants.

Select arc, line, or spline to serve as path for copied plants

 

 

 

Copies of plant placed along selected path

Copies of the plant will place along the path.

 

The spacing of the path of plants will default to the copied plant's symbol width. You can adjust the spacing using our keyboard commands:

  • Press A on your keyboard to decrease plant spacing
  • Press D on your keyboard to increase plant spacing

 

The current plant spacing will appear near the bottom left corner of the Revit window.

Keyboard Commands for Copying Plants along a Path

While the Copy along tool is active, press K on your keyboard to see our keyboard commands for copying plants.

 

During beta testing, only the following commands are available:

  • A: Decrease plant spacing
  • D: Increase plant spacing

The current plant spacing will appear near the bottom left corner of the Revit window.
