More 3D proper plants and vegetation for more dynamic presentation

Wish to have more proper trees and vegetation in 3D to make proper 3D presentation (i.e in BimX)
-Tropical Trees
-Boulders/Rocks

-Plants

-Textures

and fixe the issue with it no showing in sections/elevations. At the present, the object only show properly in 3D and plan, but the are only represented as a white square in elevations or sections (something with .png not working?). It means doubling the work which is 100% against BIM philosophy and Archicad basic architecture.

About a hundred years ago, McNeal & Assoc., the makers of Rhino 3D, developed a Ray-Trace renderer for Autocad. It was called Accu-Render. That product allowed you to insert trees and other vegetation with only a 3D polyline for the trunk and branches. You could adjust the size and season of the vegetation. The cool thing is that when you rendered the low-res stick trees, they would flesh out the trunk, branches, twigs, and leaves with amazing realistic 3D detail with the proper color of the season. I have yet to see anything like that today. And that was way back in 1996. It was speedy and kept the file small. Today's rendering programs will do this to a degree. But it would be great if those apps would supply a vast library of vegetation that could be inserted with low polygons of 3D poly lined and then converted to realistic when rendered. The Accurender trees were mathematically generated by fractal geometry.

... at the simplest level add a conifer option for Tree Model Detailed 27 - to all the comments about features introduced yet often incomplete and then left behind... Adding some horticultural veracity to the model would help, ideally with native species for the various localizations...

 

Trees also relate to sustainability and nature's tempering of climate & shading, so ideally they could be integral in energy calculation results - no small feat it would seem...

 

Finally some of the better libraries I have seen are by ArchiRADAR, however they bundle the oddest groupings, mixing northern conifers with tropicals vs native bioregional species collections... They apparently only have capacity to add a species a year, so scaling up of libraries to be functionally complete may be impossible...

 

Cadimage also had an add on (Planting) with potential if costly to both maintain with annual upgrade fees soon abandoned and orphaned.

 

To me vegetation is as basic as walls and roofs and potentially helpful to the majority of customers...
