    Class Legend Attributes

    Very helpful thank you! Makes me want to learn how to do this myself!

    Class Legend Attributes

    Thanks! This works rather well. I did have one question when I run and unwrap, the resulting objects are not listed alphabetically. Is there any way they can be sorted?
  3. As far as I know a framing member cannot be vertical. You can cheat by giving the slope something like 89.9999 degrees but it will look bad in plan.

    Renderworks Challenge - acrylic poly window texture

    This looks better than any of the glass textures I've tried to make.
  5. Because the interior elevation marker instance only exists in design layers, not sheet layer viewports, the scale of the elevation marker is set by the scale of a Design Layer. If you make a plan detail viewport at a different scale, the elevation marker gets out of scale, with no way to correct. (As I've been able to figure out) Interior elevation viewports should be able to be controlled like section viewports. In section viewports marker instances can be set to be visible in Design Layers, Sheet Layer Viewports, both, or neither. Even though the interior elevation marker works as designed, it's a bad design, and it really should be improved.

    Twisted multiple extrude

    when you loft the curves do you generally select from the same area?

    Twisted multiple extrude

    Why wouldn't you convert to NURBS and loft the curves?

    Details Library

    Let me know what you come up with. I am very intrigued by Boh's process but worry that individuals who are less tech-savvy may find it more challenging. It's hard getting everybody up to the same level of technical proficiency.

    Details Library

    Boh I like your approach for details which are specific to project or model geometry. That said, you can also extract the detail from the annotation viewport and put them into a 2d design layer of some sort so that they can be reused from project to project. I'm thinking of generic roof details, millwork details that are typically used from project to project.

    Details Library

    This is something I've been experimenting with the past few months. Not sure if this makes sense, but I've set up design layers at various scales that can be imported into our model for use in detailing. The benefit in keeping the details in model space is that they are viewported onto sheets, and thus you can use automatic drawing coordination to link them to detail markers. The detail sheet is set up as a template. And the Model area is next to the Detail Zone (although I haven't included it in this screenshot. Oh and I also make sure to display objects set at other scales in the Unified View Options, so you can see all the details at once. It makes for slightly messy design workspace, but I try to keep 3d information in one area and the 2d details in another area. The grids are still a work in progress, but they are increments of our sheet size. I would be interested in seeing examples of how others do this since I'm not sure this is the best solution.

    2D details library with text

    Here's the problem I see with page based symbols. The attached screenshot shows two details. 1 world based, 1 paged based. The page based symbol was placed back into a design layer at the same scale that it was drawn. As you can see, the leader lines of the callouts go crazy. They also don't appear to place on the sheets correctly. The world based symbols behave better. But you need to know what scale was used to produce them. They will also need to be viewported onto a sheet.
  14. Is there a way to adjust the scale of an interior elevation marker in a detail viewport? I've tried using the Marker Scaling Tool which doesn't seem to do anything. Symbol scaling seems to scale the data tags in my viewport.
