Saved Views

Recommended Posts

Anyone use saved views in the design layer to coordinate their printed drawings instead of creating sheets in the sheet layer?

Probably suitable for basic drawings only.

Saved Views can be used in a 2D workflow where you draw your elevations and sections.

If you model though and want to generate elevation and section views from the model then you need to use Sheet Layers and Sheet Layer Viewports.

Saved views used this way were common before the introduction of Sheet Layers & Viewports.

There are several important disadvantages to this however: loss of Class & Layer overrides, annotations, Titleblocks, multiple sheet sizes etc..

Yes, with the Batch Print - Saved Views are the easiest way to output rendered perspectives as PDF files.
