overlay dwg over picture


Recommended Posts

I am designing a solar system to sit on a building. I have the system drawn and a picture of the building in my VW09 drawing.

I cannot superimpose the DWG over the picture. One blanks the other. I have set all the class and layer options to show/snap/modify others, but to no avail.

I made two layers and messed with the opacity settings. Nothing works.

I don't know anything else to do.

On a design layer there is not way to get two rendered images to show at the same time.

Your best option is to use a sheet layer.

Put the photo in one view port.

Put the DWG layer in another viewport. Crop this viewport closely around the edges of the equipment.

Line up the two viewports so the equipment is in the correct location then update the viewports.
