Digital Aquascaping? A new way to plan layouts?

Hi guys,

have you ever thought about creating or planning your aquascapes digitally?

For me, there was always the problem of converting my layout ideas into reality. So I tried to develop a new way of planning layouts, with a little bit of coding knowledge...

I think, the result is pretty cool. It's named "Scape It". Scape It allows you to create stunning layouts in a matter of minutes. Easy, fast and absolutely free.

It's a project, that evolved of the issue above. It's driven by the joy of aquascaping.

You can find Scape It here: scape-it.io

So, please give it a try. It has just been released a few days ago and is at its very starting point. If you have any feedback, ideas or questions - I would be happy to answer them.

Have fun with Scape It

very interesting! I really like this idea, with phones and VR it would be awesome to project this onto the tank and see how it looks

This is a great tool. As someone who needs to see it first before deciding if they like it, this design tool will save me a lot of time and effort.

I've already shown this to half a dozen other hobbyists and we all think it's great.

I'll say it again, I think it's great. Keep it up!

Hey guys,

thanks for the positive feedback .

here a short update: Scape It will soon be available for mobile devices.

The update should be ready within the next few weeks (actually before christmas).

It will also bring a new bunch of plants.

I am absolutely looking forward to this and hope that you will like it.

Can you add algae?

Question. Why do you need to allow cookies in order to access the site? If one chooses to allow them do you then have to provide an email address also?

Thanks!

This is a fantastic idea!

The thought of being able to add a big variety of plants is also wonderful. What would be really cool is having the ability to do a "rough" future timeline view, set to specific points (like 3, 6, 9, 12 months) under "normal" conditions for the species of plant, to see how selected plants will develop and fill in the tank.

I'm sure adding mobile functionality and even an app would be highly valued!
