  1. I am dealing with a workflow issue regarding the drawing of construction details. I am trying to solve maybe too many issues at once and I may have to make a choice on which is most important. I am trying to create a variety of details for residential construction, here are the issues: Whether to create 3D(part of the building model or separate of) versus 2D details If using 2D, do I annotate the design layer or the Viewport annotation layer How do I create a reusable set of construction details, should I include the notes in my symbols? I usually ending up doing all of the above which is very time consuming, How do you do it?
  2. Associative Dimensions are great! Problem is they work only from Point-Point. I would like their role to be expanded to include associations between other snap conditions. eg Point-Perpendicular.
  3. i tried to create the flow chart. but i am stuck in middle. can anyone help in creating? Driver backs up the truck into one of the available docks.For full truck loads (FTL) the forklift driver checks the seal to be intact, and matches it with the seal number on the PL/BOL. If seal doesn’t match, he reports to the receiving clerk. Receiving clerk contacts the buyer and fills out the “discrepancy form”. If buyer doesn’t approve the discrepancy, the truck is rejected without breaking the seal. If buyer approves, the forklift driver unloads the goods from the truck and stages them in the receiving area. He counts the goods, and visually inspects the packaging and the parts themselves. If there is a shortage/discrepancy, or if packaging is damaged, he takes pictures, lists the damages/shortages on the BOL, as well as the form, and has the driver sign it. The forklift driver then fills out the “Visual Inspection (VI) Form” by matching the “Packing List (PL)” with the shipment and notes any potential quantity or visual defect issues. Receiving clerk should put a red tag on damaged goods. Damaged goods are moved to quarantine for further inspection. The receiving clerk logs the data under “Incoming QC” in “SmartSheet”. “SmartSheet” sends a notification to the QC inspector. If the load is intact, or the non-damaged portion of the shipment are staged in the receiving area, and are tagged with orange labels “inspection required”. The “VI” form and a copy of the PL are passed to the QC, and another copy goes to the inventory controller. QC inspects the shipment, and passes the “inspection report” to the inventory controller. Inventory controller receives the number of goods that passed the inspection in the ERP system. If there is a discrepancy, shortage, or quality issueQC inspector makes a note under “SmartSheet”. The buyer then follows through the “MRB (Material Review Board)” process.
  4. Hey al, Is there a way to use a spreadsheet of X,Y,Z position data to populate the appropriate X,Y,Z fields of a symbol, fixture, or any object? For example, a designer i work with gave me an MA3D file created in 3D but i need to turn it into appropriate lighting plot paperwork. I have X,Y,Z data for every finxture and want to use an easy copy and paste to position all fixtures correctly in the drawing. I have tried using a lightwright data exchange, report functionality listing the X,Y,Z data of each fixture, and tried to create records with no luck. any time i populate the fileds in a spreadsheet, the changes do not get reflected on the fixtures. Any tips? Thanks!
  5. Is there a way to link object information to record formats? I want to create a schedule by applying a record format to existing objects and have the record information auto-populate the record fields with the object's height, width, and depth dimensions.
  6. When using the new irrigation tools we are trying to determine the best way to share ONE master catalog. We are a multiple station office and need to be all sharing the same resources. The current 2017 installation puts the default catalog on the local C: drive; therefore, every computer has a locally different (albeit the same content) starting catalog. This catalog is extremely extensive, but does not contain ALL of the equipment necessary that we use on a daily basis. Adding catalog data is very straight forward, but the problem I noticed is when a workgroup individual user needs to add equipment to the catalog. This information is stored in separate .txt files in the user folder, but stored separately from any working folder setup. This means that no one else can access the information created by that user without going to the effort of moving and merging that data with the data in the workgroup library. We have a working library that everyone shares, is there a way to move the Master/Default content to that location and then when ANY user needs to add equipment, they add it to the workgroup location and not their individual user folder? Otherwise it seems we have to go through what could be a troubling copy and paste methodology to store the new catalog information. If this functionality doesn't exist, consider this a wishlist request that should be addressed ASAP to allow for larger offices to control the workflow of sometimes complex irrigation catalog information collectively.
  7. Can somebody align me to a better workflow than the one we are currently using for sheet borders in multiple files for the same project. We currently 1. Have the mother sheet border symbol in the title sheet file 2. Reference the symbol into each referenced file 3. Insert the symbol as part of a sheet border component When project information changes... 4. Edit the sheet border 2D symbol in the mother file for project information (date, project title, data, etc.) 5. Update the reference to the title block file in the other referenced files 6. TOOLS > UTILITIES > RESET ALL PLUG-INS.... This was a workflow provided to me in another post, but it hasn't been the most effective way. Often sheet borders disappear rather than update. We need a much better way of handling this.
