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.
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 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.
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.
