still working on the 3d version


Another update to let everyone know that I am still working hard on the 3d update for Garden Planner. It’s moving along steadily and I hope to have some sort of a demo or beta version for people to try out soon.

Part of my thinking with the 3d version is that I want it to be different to other 3d CAD/design software. Obviously I want it to be very easy to use, but something I’ve noticed with other software that lets you design a house or landscape is that they tend to create a 3d object rather than a place. My aim with Garden Planner is that you can create a garden that feels like a place. So you can  go for a wander around in the garden, look down at the flowers, lie on the grass and look up at a tree (see above image). Hopefully I’ll achieve something like that.

    David Hello,
    This is amazing news!

    We heavily rely on your program in our business.

    If you can pull a competent 3d capabilities that would be amazing!

    Quick question, will the new 3d stuff features will use the same 2d base? As in, can we just hit “export 3d” image on the basic 2d plan or will we need to re enter a bunch of new dimensions and data for the 3d part?

    Thanks again David, your program is very easy to use, and greatly streamlined our bidding process.

    I would love to test the demo/ be on the beta list, as I use this program daily.

    You have a great weekend,

      Hello Reed,
      the idea with the 3d version is that it will generate the 3d view of the plan from the 2d view. There may some additional information you may wish to modify (like height and elevation) but my aim is to make it as simple as possible. I’ll let you know when there is something to try out
