The Residential Trifecta: Connecting 2D Plans, 3D Models, and Landscape Business Management

Note: This is the session presented at the American Society of Landscape Architects Expo in Denver, CO on November 24, 2014.

The need for drafting, modeling and management tools to aid the designer in estimating and presentation for residential landscapes is key. Come explore the use of 2D and 3D software developed for these designers. We will highlight DynaScape for clear, concise 2D landscape drawings, SketchUp for 3D modeling from the 2D plans, and DynaScape’s Manage360 which develops cost based estimates and detailed job costing reports based on the plans.

Working in concert, these applications provide a complete solution to the landscape architect residential professional enabling them to deliver a better product to their clients.

Industry heavyweights Daniel Tal, Mark Carvalho, and Patrick DuChene demonstrate DynaScape Software’s workflow of going from DS|Design (CAD based design) to DS|Manage360 to SketchUp using DS|Sketch3D.
