lets say there is a number of locations in surface where i would like to replace or add an object, say a tree. is there a way either in layout or modeller to replace certain points or 2 point polys (much like the luxigon plugin) maybe on a certain layer... i guess what i'm after is something like the luxigon plugin, but for objects...i thought something like this already existed, but either i dreamt it or i'm not looking in the right places.

any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

cheers,

Hey Sydneysider, depends on how much info you need. For a single Partigon on a layer, Items/Replace/Replace with... or FXLinker?

The Luxigon just specifies the light info...

Not really sure what you mean. I 'm guessing that's what you are talking about; being able to set a point where you want it in the model and convert in Layout to something else?

Hello Davo

You can use the "point clone plus" command in modeller (Multiply tab) to duplicate a foreground objet in the location of the background points of the background objet (with attributes for variyng the clones)

Hope this could help and excuse my bad english
