Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Growing plants on an imported object, part of Up and Running with Plant Factory.
- The last chapter in Up And Running…With Plant Factory Producer is about inter-operability,…getting data back and forth between PlantFactory…and other applications.…One of the most common things you will want to do…is cause a plant to conform to the shape…of an external object.…And as I noted previously in the course, there is no…volumetric space-filling algorithm in PlantFactory…as of version 2015.…This means that you are currently not able to…perform operations such as…cause a plant to fill a volume.…
If you're trying to do a complex, topiary shapes,…you actually cannot do it withing PlantFactory currently.…However, you can cause a plant to conform…to the external surface of an object,…and that's a feature called Grow On Object.…It itself is actually somewhat limited,…and in order to get the best use out of it…you have to design your plant…with some restrictions in mind.…Basically, you need to make the plant conform…closely to the shape of the external object…before you even try to make it grow on that object.…

In these tutorials, Aaron F. Ross shows how to get started with PlantFactory. He'll cover modeling plants and trees, sculpting plants from components, editing plant parameters, adding materials and animation effects, and rendering the results. Plus, learn how to use PlantFactory's powerful node graph to control individual properties and generate plants procedurally.
