The client is requesting a "photo" of a roundabout we've designed to be included with our planset. I've done some isometric stuff, and draped an image over a surface, but I've never rendered anything. I've attached an example of kind of what I'm after, but don't really know how I can make this happen.
I have Photoshop and Infrastructure Design Suite at my disposal.
Any help/guidance on this would be greatly appreciated.

you might have luck in Infraworks...
or right inside C3D


Within 3D - be sure to create unique surfaces and apply styles with desired render materials assigned


with infraworks...it gets a little trickier - but you will find IBX of FBX you better export/import options

I was thinking about c3d surfaces with render materials. How can I add more materials to the list when I specify for a particular surface?
I'd like: grass, pavement, sidewalk, concrete (curb/gutter, sidewalk). I found a very basic 3d tree block, but it looks like the crap we'd draw as children (trunk + circle of leaves at top). Is there a way/block similar to the trees shown in the picture?
