Tulips In Elevation
In sections and elevations it's nice to draw nature based elements as if they are actually natural, such as flowers. A row of the same blocks looks very generic instead of natural. To collect or create a bunch of similar blocks and place them by hand can do the job but takes quiet some time and effort. With this in mind the 'Tulips In Elevation' command was created. At the start of the command the user needs to select linear elements which are used as baselines. After confirming the selection of baselines the user can change several options in the main menu. Most important options concern the color of the bulb and stem of the tulips. The command has four preset colors for the bulbs and two preset colors for the stems. In the main menu the user can select colors easily by selecting objects in the drawing. By default the command will apply these colors to the tulips in a random fashion. In the main menu however the user can change this to a fixed order. In that case the command will apply the colors in the order in which they are picked. When everything is set to the users preference the user has to hit enter. The command will draw tulips on the selected linear elements in such a way they have a natural look instead of a generic look. For this command the user has to mind the drawing units to make sure the height of the tulips is correct. This type of command can be applied to numerous other types of flowers and plants. If you think you have a good sample of flowers or plants feel free to mail them and they might get turned into a similar command!
