F/X CAD 2023
+1 805-541-1003

An Autodesk® engine exclusively for Land F/X users.

Plans created by ELM, designed using F/X CAD.

F/X CAD is an Autodesk® engine designed specifically for landscape architects.

Requires a Land F/X License (sold separately).


New Extend Vertex


Stretch a polyline at its start or end more easily than ever. Previously, you could not add a new vertex to the start of a polyline – only a new second vertex – which made it difficult to extend.

New Cut with Base Point (CUTBASE)


Grab an object to place in a new location while automatically removing the original from your drawing. It's like using COPYBASE to cut and paste but without the extra step of deleting.

Enhanced Count Palette


While you’re using the Count Palette, you can also select a Work Area to limit the error checking to the Land F/X areas you’ve already drawn. Go even further and try the count palette selection tool!

Floating drawing windows improvement


The Command line now floats with your drawing window when anchored (instead of docked) – a further evolution of the ability to move a floating window to another monitor, added last year.

New Drawing shows the DWT name


On the Start tab, hover on the New button to see which drawing template is set to launch. Memory of the last template used in the current session is built in, and you can use your QNEW option to apply that memory to future sessions.

Options dialog box
asks to save


How many times have you made extensive changes to the Options, only to lose them because you accidentally closed or canceled? Now you have a safeguard!

Improved interface touches


Drawing tabs now have enhanced contrast for easier identification, with a darker color applied to inactive tabs, plus a new check mark on the active drawing’s entry in the overflow menu when you have multiple files open.
