3D Symbol that automatically populates a 2D Annotative symbol on annotative layer of a viewport

Michael Smith


It would be great to build 1 symbol, let's say a 3D - 1G LV box, and have it auto-populate the annotative layer of a viewport with a 2D annotative symbol that is a particular paper size, no matter the scale of the viewport.  Sometimes you may have different annotations that need to show in the same physical space (e.g. a 1G LV box AND a 1G receptacle that might be within 12" of the 1G LV box).  In this case two viewports perhaps that show the 2D annotative symbol, or if the scale is zoomed in enough, they could be within the same viewport.

I think Revit electrical symbols for example tie the annotative symbol to a 3D object in the model.
