Fastest way to create a layout page using a structural PDF or DWG file

Recommended Posts

You can import DWG details [or pdf] into a library or plan file.

 

>Need to make sure that it won't violate other users copyright infringement either

 

Best way: will be create your own, use [modify] the detail chief architect provided, ask if someone will share with you here, etc.   

If someone provided something to you, ask/check license statement "free to use in any commercial..." 

 

TYP details are the same, so copyright is about the author.

 

The easiest way to include TYP CAD details on the layout  ... is to create a separate plan file with all of the details, link this additional "details" plan

with a layout file and use send to layout for your details to be sent to a layout. This would allow you to update a single "details".plan and an update

will reflect onto every layout this detail plan is linked to.

      Open to new work. I've been working remotely for clients for years and can easily navigate the issues that present themselves from remote work. I have plenty of references and videos demonstrating my various services. The following images are snippets from my site at www.RabbittDesign.net
       

      I offer training-while-drafting services in Chief Architect as well as training in Sketchup, Thea Render, Photoshop, Premiere Pro and Procreate.
      I tend to cater to experienced designers and drafters in Chief Architect, many of which benefit from and are quite pleased with anno/layer sets, library items, toolbars, and a more cohesive folder structure and .plan and .layout files. 
      A few hours of my service may cut hours off of every project you have going forward.
      Feel free to check out my YouTube channel dedicated to all things drafting, designing, modeling and rendering in my signature below.
      Take a look at some of my recent design work in the Gallery

      Hi All,
      I would like to control the display of CAD line length and angle labels by layer in addition to via the dbx. Is there a way to do this? I know how to use the dbx below under display options, but I have a file with a bunch of different polylines and I would like to be able to turn on and off the labels without opening a dbx for each one. I would also like to display labels with some layer sets and not others for layout views. Thanks for any suggestions!
