      Once a model or scene is created using the 3D Landscape Wizard, it can be rotated, tilted, and adjusted within Realtime Landscaping Photo.

      To edit your 3D design, click the Edit button. This will start Realtime Landscaping Architect where you can edit the design in 3D. When you close the program, your updated 3D design will be re-imported.
