This page provides some background information for users who want to make new plant symbols that behave similarly to those in the standard set of symbols available in the gCADPlus library.
The figure below provides a standard framework for creating a new symbol.
Let’s extend this idea further
Instead of making every new symbol the same canopy diameter, the team at AWLandscape Design has created a series of landscape symbols that are sized for use in typical jobs.
How to make a new plant symbol with the ‘look and feel’ of a particular species – in this case, Dillwyllia cinerascens, such that it is ready for use in future gCADPlus landscape design projects. We set up appropriate layer names and use an image of the species in the flower to assist in creating the symbol with filled polylines.
