Adding a Sprinkler Line
Realtime Landscaping Pro includes several tools for
designing irrigation systems. You can lay out as many sprinkler lines as desired
and add sprinkler heads. When you create a project material list, the length of
your sprinkler lines and number of heads will be included so you can accurately
estimate the cost of your sprinkler system.
To add a sprinkler line:
1. Click Add
2. Click to add each
3. When finished,
right-click to add the last point.
In the following landscape design, the blue line is a
sprinkler line, and the circles represent the water coverage. The black dots at
the center of the circles are the sprinkler heads. You can design your sprinkler
systems in top-down or perspective view. See Adding a Sprinkler Head for a top-down view
of the following design.
Sprinkler lines can be straight or curved.
Sprinkler lines do not appear during a realtime walkthrough. However,
sprinkler heads do appear and can optionally spray water.
recommend that you place all of the objects associated your sprinkler system
into a separate layer. Then you can turn it off when you're done working on it.
See Using Layers for details. You can also use the
View > Show/Hide command to selectively show and hide the sprinkler
