Block library review

"Landscape Symbol Library" from ASAH Design

A range of trees, shrubs, ferns, flowers, palms, cacti ground covers in both plan and elevation view, indexed by both common name and botanical name. Other related blocks include fencing, paving outdoor furniture.All are 2D blocks and a hardcopy is provided of them all.

Approx. hard drive storage 14 Meg. Individual blocks from 5kB to 131kB in size.

All as separate .dwg files (check with supplier which version of .dwg file is current).

Method of use is as separate selectable insertable blocks or x-ref's.

Easy to make building design site plans and building elevations much more presentable and appealing.

Could be improved if say tree trunks were solids that hid the objects behind without the need for trimming.

Leave insertion till later in the drawing process if a likelihood of slowing a strained computer down (or x-ref in as a landscape plan/elevation).

Was purchased for a bit over $100 if I recall correctly, check for latest details as reviewed version almost 2 years old.
