Creating unit plans, apartments, etc

Recommended Posts

After some thought and discussion I decided to try using referenced viewports to create master apartment floor plans.  The units are on one file and the building is on another.  It is a bit of work to setup but seems good except for one big problem, the units do not show up in 3D.  Does anyone have experience using this system and how do I solve the unit 3D issue.

Not getting any action here.  But I figured it out.  Each unit has to be on a separate layer without a crop.  Then in the viewport you select the layer/unit you want and put it where it needs to be in the master floor plan.  It works pretty well.  Only thing is the exterior walls need to be deleted from the original unit plan. Then a perimeter wall is built around all the units.
