I would like to know more about this too.  I think it is just a plan with the different class structure to show the lights, hide the doors, ect - but that would still require a bit of post processing to show ceiling drops and other features.  Really they need an intelligent RCP view.

Change your class visibility settings.

The Sills class controls the visibility of the door swing.

Ceiling-Main class controls the visibility of wall breaks in door and windows(?)

So for a floor plan you want Sills visible and Ceiling-Main invisible.

For a ceiling plan you want Sill invisible and Ceiling-Main visible.

Depending on how you structure your drawing and what it contains there are probably other classes you will want to change the visibility of also.

 

HTH.

Thanks Pat!  I'm on my way to making my VW RCP.

I guess using the slab tool you could make your drops and then class those slab objects to get your firm standard shading or hatching.
