    Accurate creation of 2d details and 3D objects

    Whats cool is that you can import SketchUp models into Chief. Just download to your desktop and drag into open plan. You can save them to your User Library too. So if your good with SU, you may still model there for now. I realize these examples are not exactly what you need, but... Some fluted columns at SketchUps 3DWarehouse

    Repair Shop Lift Model

    SketchUp's 3D Warehouse has many. Download a model to your desktop, and drag it into an open plan. Here is one example Auto Lift
  4. Yep there it is, thank you.
  5. Eric, at 00:45 seconds into the first linked video, the instructor shows that "when you open a new plan with the out of the box default template, there are several saved plan views already integrated into the plan". I cannot find the template she is referring to. Where might that be ? thanks, J

    dual dimensioning

    Interesting, I am not familiar with that function (showing secondary units of measurement in single dimension line ) Now I know. May I ask why you are needing to have this show in a plan ? So the plan could work on more than one country ?

    Camera Views in Layout X11

    Never noticed that C key also lets you resize. Differently, but works too. X seems more dynamic.

    Switched Outlet Symbol

    Because this type of outlet is usually under a kitchen sink, powering the garbage disposal, and because the power cords you have to buy and attach to a garbage disposal often have one of those right angle plugs with the cord coming out the bottom, it is best to have the switched half be on the bottom. Otherwise the cord may occlude the bottom ( if the plug has to go in the top.) You need the always on half available for the DW My 2 cents

    Text or Dimension by Layer

    Learn anno sets and plan view sets of course. Meanwhile, make one text box assigned to that layer you want, and copy it to a few places on your drawing. Open them one by one and place proper text. For arrows, Text Line with Arrow drawn with its tail end snapped to a text object will be placed on the same layer as the text object and inherit all of that layer’s attributes
