POWER TIP: Viewing A Land F/X Plan Without Land F/X
Recommended by Shaun Rittenhouse

Not every design professional has Land F/X ... yet. But what if you need to send your Land F/X plan to someone who is just using native AutoCAD? How will it look and function? Will your plants and other blocks lose their data? Don’t worry – it will be just fine. We’ll go over how our smart blocks are set up and how they’re designed to still work in AutoCAD without Land F/X.

Presented by Jeremiah Farmer

Our wishlist of requests from Land F/X users is among the main drivers of new features we engineer into the software. Each year, our development team scours this list to prioritize which exciting new functionality should come next. You'll learn how we determine what's a priority and what's on tap for this year, but more importantly, we want you to bring your list of hopes and dreams for what we should add to Land F/X. Don't miss this rare opportunity to peek behind the curtain of our development process – and possibly have your feature suggestions implemented in a future update.

POWER TIP:  Creating High-Detail Blocks
POWER TIP: Creating High-Detail Blocks
Recommended by Jaymz Wooden

Although they might get the job done, simple blocks can be somewhat limiting if you're trying to make a splash with your presentation. You might be tempted to use more intricate blocks with complex linework for a realistic look, but it might come at a cost: noticeably slow AutoCAD performance. We'll show you how to add detail and color to any block to give it a sense of depth, all while keeping CAD running smoothly.
