Application of 3D Visualization in Landscape Design Teaching

Wenbo Jiang, Yuan Zhang


The development of computer technology has reshaped the form and philosophy of landscape design, as evidenced by the growing importance of computer-aided design (CAD) in this area. This paper attempts to apply 3D visualization in the teaching of landscape design. For this purpose, three CAD teaching tools were selected, namely, AutoCAD, 3D Max and SketchUp, and subjected to theoretical analysis and teaching practice. The research results show that AutoCAD can guide the landscape design teaching from conception to positioning, 3D Max can upgrade the teaching form from 2D to 3D in the later phase, and SketchUp sup-ports the entire process of landscape design. In addition, the author summarized the specific process of supporting landscape design teaching with SketchUp. This research enriches the results on the application of CAD in landscape design teaching and has certain theoretical and practical significance.
