Adding a Sidewalk

Applies to: Plus Pro Architect

Add realistic sidewalks to your landscape design using the Sidewalk tool. By default, sidewalks are constructed using standard dimensions and standard white poured cement. However, both the size and the material of a sidewalk can be changed to support your design.

To add a sidewalk:

1.   From the Road tab, click Add Sidewalk.

2.   Set Width to the desired sidewalk width.

3.   Draw the sidewalk by clicking the left mouse button to add points. Press the Backspace key to remove the last point added, and 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 Enter.

4.   To finish drawing the sidewalk, right-click to place the last point. Your sidewalk will be created to the left side of the line you have drawn. Click Switch sides to reverse it.


Changing the Shape

A sidewalk’s shape can be easily modified after it has been added to your landscape design. To change the shape of a sidewalk, select the sidewalk and click the Edit Points button. See Editing Points for more information.


    Sidewalks support automatic curbing, but curbing can be disabled if needed.

    Sidewalks can also be automatically added using the Road object.

    Sidewalks are highly customizable; any material can be used, expansion joints can be included or removed, and the length, width, and height can be changed as needed.

    Sidewalks can be added in either the Plan view or the Perspective view, but are easiest to add in the Plan view.
