How do I automaticlly place my pipe system?
The last step in sprinkler planning is normally to connect the sprinklers and the water connection together. This can either be done automatically or manual.
First you need to place your water tab in your garden. (See section above about water connections.)
If you prefer to do it automatically then simply press the button “Connect your sprinklers”. You can manually adjust the sprinklers afterwards if you are not happy with the automatic result.
How do I manually place my pipe system?
1. Select the Pipe object in the object menu.

5. All your sprinklers have been connected to the water connection when they change colour from a transparent white to blue.
