Adding a Curb
The Curb object is used to place curbing of various shapes
and sizes in your landscape design. Curbs are painted cement by default, but can
be set to any material desired. Three styles of curbing are available, including
standard, rounded, and standard with gutter. Curbs also support optional
expansion joints for a realistic appearance.
To add a Curb:
Click the Add Curb button that appears near the top of the screen
under the Road tab.
Draw the curb by clicking the left mouse button to add points. Press the
Backspace key to remove the last point added, or press the Esc key
to cancel. If you would like to input the distance and angle manually, place at
least one point and then press the Enter key.
To finish drawing the curb, place the last point on top of the first point.
Alternately, right-click to place the last point. The curb will be created to
the left of the line that was drawn.
In the picture below,
cement curbing was used to design a street median.
Changing the Shape
A curb’s shape can be easily modified after it has been
added to your landscape design. To change the shape of a curb, select the curb
and click the Edit Points button. See Editing Points for more information.
Curbing can be added in either the Plan view or the Perspective view, but
is typically easiest to add in the Plan view.
can also be added automatically using the Sidewalk
object or the Road object.
Points can easily be added to or removed from your curb’s shape for
greater control. For more information, see Inserting and Deleting Points.
