creating a demo plan and proposed plan

Recommended Posts

Looking for a better way to create a demo flr plan and proposed flr plan from m y existing plan.  Currently, I create my existing floor plan and create my demo layer from this.  I will copy the existing plan and create a new layer called the proposed layer.  On this layer I remove any walls or doors, windows and add the new items as necessary.

Is there a better way to use my existing flr plan drawing and create the demo and proposed from that?

Do I need to create separate layers for each ie, existing,  demo and proposed

I think you will find that most designers use classes for controlling what is going to show in a viewport – i.e. existing, demo and proposed — and using layers for more physical differences, i.e. floor levels. Are you not using classes at all?

I will use a copy of the existing plan and chop it up and place the demo on a Demo class which i can turn off for the proposed plan and leave on for the demo plan.

Classes allow you to manipulate what you see in the Sheet Layers.
