Adding a Sprinkler Head
Sprinkler heads are the visible portion of a typical
irrigation design; sprinkler heads emerge from the ground to shower the
surrounding landscape with water at the angle and radius that you have selected.
When your landscape design is complete, you can refer to the Project Material List for an
accurate calculation of the amount of sprinkler heads that have been added to
your design, as well as the length of sprinkler line used.
To add a sprinkler head:
Click the Add Sprinkler Head button that appears near the
top of the screen under the Water Features tab.
Click on your design where you wish to place the sprinkler head. If you wish to
add multiple sprinkler heads at once, hold the Ctrl key while
Sprinkler heads can be added to your design before or after the sprinkler lines
are in place.
In the picture below, the landscape design features a basic
irrigation system that is composed of sprinkler lines (the blue lines), and
sprinkler heads (the light blue circles). See Adding a Sprinkler Line for another picture
of this design shown from the Perspective view.
As shown in the irrigation design below, both the coverage
angle and the radius of spray can also be adjusted per sprinkler head.
recommend placing all objects associated with your irrigation design in a
separate layer. This will allow you to show or hide the entire irrigation system
at once. For details on layers, see Using
Sprinkler heads will spray water during a Realtime Walkthrough by
default. To disable the spray of a sprinkler head, uncheck the On during
realtime walkthrough property.
