Different component heights or layers?

Recommended Posts

I need to create numerous trellises at various heights. Would you simply create these on the 1-floor layout design layer at their varying heights, or would you create different design layers for each trellis height?

put them on the same layer and set them to the different heights. Having too many layers would get confusing.

For visibility reasons for modeling I would put them on 2nd Floor Layer.

I also try to use only 1 Layer per Story as long as possible.

But I think I would bind the Members to Story Levels.

(If that works now reliably ?)

And/Or use Classes to separate their different Levels for better overview

when modeling. Like A_MEMBER_340, A_MEMBER 280, ....
