I work for the San Diego Zoo and do all our Schematic Design in ArchiCAD. As such we have large sites with allot of landscape elements (plants, trash cans, Benches, Stairs, handrails, play elements) that I place on the mesh using the gravity tool. The thing that frustrates me is as I continue to develop the site plan and move contour lines to fine grade the site the objects remain in the original location. What I wish is that a library part elevation can be linked to the object the same way the elevation marker is linked so as I change the contour elevations all my plants, site elements will follow the referenced surface. This association would save me so much time in adjusting elevations of objects after we adjust the site for ADA slopes and fine grading through the rest of the design process.
