Plant Copies With Same Codes Missing When Importing into SketchUp, Rhino, or Revit

Issue

You exported your planting plan design through the 3D Connection tool, but when you tried to import your plants into SketchUp, Rhino, or Revit, plants that were copies with the same code are missing.

 

Cause

This issue is isolated to Local Data. Our 3D Connection plugins for SketchUp, Rhino, and Revit operate solely on Cloud Data. When your CAD Land F/X plugin is using Local Data, the 3D Connection needs to copy the data between the local and cloud versions of the project (effectively 2 separate non-dynamic versions of the same project). Plant copies with the same code don't translate back and forth between these platforms.

 

Solution

Use Cloud Data. with our Cloud Data option, your entire project data never needs to be copied every time you export to 3D, as both platforms are using the cloud database. It only needs to transfer the location information.

This is just one of the many valid reasons to switch to Cloud Data, which is free with every supported license of Land F/X. See the links below for more information about:
