3D Vegetation plugin / addon for Blender and Cycles

3DS Max users use Forest Pack (http://www.itoosoft.com/forestpack.php) and other vegetation plugins such as Laubwerks (http://www.laubwerk.com/) to create vegetation sceneries rapidly.

I’d like to know what do Blender users use? At the moment, “make them yourself!” is not feasible as my clients have tight deadlines.

actually, as far as I know, someone had a prototype of a Laubwerk Plugin running on Blender. Laubwerk actually has a Python connection. Houdini was supported via Python at first, now there is a native plugin for Houdini.
So if there is interest and if you are a Python developer wanting to write a bridge, go and contact them

P.S I should add, that I am modeling plants for Laubwerk :wink: And I think it is also important to understand, that Laubwerk is not a vegetation modeling tool (for now).
But it is also more then just a static model, as you can change parameters like leaf density for example.

ngplant is a standalone software that began as a blender plugin, and can model trees, ferns, palm trees, and other plants.
