Video Length:  1:03:53
Presented By:  Amanda Marin

Let's continue our series on our new Planting F/X for Revit Plugin. This time, we'll focus on more tools and show how to tackle more complex workflows in Revit with Planting F/X. We'll go over customizing the defaults, implementing some labeling strategies, editing floor types, and working with multiple views. We'll also showcase some new tools and review our most recent development progress.

Question: Can the Planting F/X Plugin for Revit import the design from CAD? (1:01:11)

Answer: Yes! (The planting plan, anyway, along with the assigned data and Preferences.) Our intention is that you can work between CAD, Revit, SketchUp, and Rhino, and your plan will look the same across all platforms.
