About this app
Revit has long been recognized as a powerful tool for architectural design and construction. However, when it comes to landscape architecture, it falls short in certain areas. Enter LTM® - Landscape Terrain Modeller, a remarkable Revit plugin that bridges the gap and enables landscape architects to fully utilize the capabilities of Revit for their projects.
Enhancing Revit's Functionality
The LTM® plugin offers a wide range of functions that empower users to modify floors, create filled regions, perform calculations, work with toposurfaces, add annotations, and utilize various tools. Let's explore some of its key features:
Modifying Floors with Ease
The LTM® plugin revolutionizes the way floors are modified in Revit. With functions like creating sub-elements by typing slope, matching sub-elements in different floors, adjusting sub-elements in selected areas, and setting sub-elements in real levels, landscape architects have unparalleled control over the terrain modeling process.
Creating Filled Regions
The ability to create filled regions attached to floors is a game-changer. With LTM®, landscape architects can effortlessly generate filled regions with the same shape as the floor, clone filled regions from other views while preserving their connection to the floor, and update filled regions automatically when the shape of the floor changes.
LTM® simplifies the process of calculating cut/fill volumes between floors and toposurfaces. This feature enables landscape architects to accurately determine the amount of soil movement required for their projects, saving time and facilitating informed decision-making.
Seamless Toposurface Integration
Working with toposurfaces becomes seamless with LTM®. Importing model lines from DWG files, matching line style and elevation, creating contour lines, placing elevation texts, and even creating floors from toposurface information are just a few of the functionalities that make topography manipulation a breeze.
Annotation and Analysis Tools
LTM® offers a variety of annotation and analysis tools to enhance the presentation and analysis of landscape designs. Sketching spot elevations, inserting annotations with elevations from selected objects, creating slope texts, and analyzing slopes and face coloring based on various parameters all contribute to a more efficient and visually appealing design process.
Expanding Revit's Landscape Capabilities
The LTM® plugin truly expands Revit's capabilities in the realm of landscape architecture. With the ability to insert families along lines, create spot elevations, generate floors from bottom faces of objects, and import/export data in various formats, the possibilities are endless.
LTM® - Landscape Terrain Modeller is an indispensable plugin for anyone working with landscape architecture in Autodesk® Revit®. Its extensive range of features empowers landscape architects to overcome the limitations of Revit and unlock its full potential for their projects. With LTM®, the design and modeling process becomes more efficient, accurate, and visually engaging. We highly recommend giving LTM® a try and experiencing the transformation it brings to landscape design in Revit.
