About the LandKit Category

Introducing Land Kit


Land Kit is a Grasshopper plugin for landscape design and related fields. It helps solve some of the trickier problems presented when designing landscapes in 3D by using computational tools. The components, templates, and workflows are intended to make these approaches more attainable and accessible. Data rich instances stand in for collections of geometry and attributes, allowing for high-level manipulation and iteration. It is designed for Landscape, but there are many applications for architects, ecologists, pattern makers, and more.

Topo Kit

Design directly in 3D with the features that drive topography: walls, curbs, stairs, paths, spots, breaklines, and maybe a contour or two. Topo Kit lets you manipulate these features simply, while you watch your topographic model update in real time. Analyze slope, elevation, or cut contours in real time during the design process.

Plant Kit

Plant Kit allows you to design with analysis, data, and placement rules that you can set and forget while you think about other levels of design. Instead of drawing circles, work more nimbly with 3D analysis components, plant mixes based on plant data (from a simple spreadsheet), and the intuitive computational environment of Grasshopper.

Paving Kit

Use Paving Kit to Define simple paving zones with shapes,Add standard or custom patterns with paver dimensions And Let Paving Kit do the drafting of repeat patterns, seams, and coloration. Even project pavers to a 3D mesh or add texture mapping for rendering. Design paving textures swatches more rapidly for larger sites.

Hi Benjamin,


Is your food4Rhino page updated?: Land Kit | Food4Rhino
I can only see there an installer for Grasshopper in Rhino 6.

Also, let me know if you want to have your own category on the Rhino forum.

Hi Carlos,

Thank you so much! I see what you are saying with the installer. That version will work for both Rhino 6 and Rhino 7. I will have our team update the text so that its clear that installer will work with both.

We would love a category if its possible to get one started early. I am not sure what you need from us to create a category, but just let me know and we will send you any info you need.
