Crawl Space Vent Tool??

Recommended Posts

Hi Chiefs, 

 

Is there a crawl space vent tool, and if so where do you go to find it?

 

I have been using tiny windows for a while now but I was told there is an actual tool for it so I want to use that.

 

Thank you!

There are foundation vents in the Lib.

Left vent is fixed window with screen material instead of glass.

The right vent is CA. and is adjustable.

I use the one in the Library and just place it? There are two sizes there? Never thought of using a window and changing the materail ?

Thanks Mr. Page, I am going to have to put you on the payroll pretty soon. That is what I needed. 

 

David, thats just how I thought to do it and it never became an issue until now, you cant get the look of the screen on the vent (at least not as far as I know) and the windows show up in the schedule which you dont always want. However you could do a window schedule from the foundation floor only and you could have a vent schedule that way. So I dont know.

If you use "Vent" symbols then they can be excluded from the Window Schedule and a separate "Vent Schedule" can be done.

Note that the "Vent" type can be set in the Symbol dbx - normally done when the Symbol is created - but any Window Symbol in the user Library can be specified as a "Vent" in the Options Panel of the Symbol dbx.

Yoda, see I do. 

 

When you use a vent symbol it is locked as a vent but you can change windows to be "vents" do you know if you can apply some kind of louver over the window opening to create something that would visually pass as a vent?

 

Usually I like to avoid the library whenever possible. It takes a lot of time to load and to find the object you are looking for. If i can do it all from my window tool that would be easier I think.

Windows created by the Window Tool can not be specified as "Vents".  Only Window Symbols can be specified as "Vents".

Organization of the User Library into Folders is mandatory.  Take the time to organize your custom Symbols in Folders and you'll be miles ahead.  Also, for commonly used Symbols - a Library Object Custom Toolbar is an excellent solution.

Oh ok, sorry I misunderstood about the vent stuff. I will definitely take time to organize the library, and I am really intrigued by the Object toolbar, how do I get there? I just looked on the support page for information about it but it is just showing me stuff about the "Place Library Object" tool, which I am assuming is different.

Alex,

 

Michael did some excellent videos on creating a Library Object Toolbar.  I don't have the link offhand but if you do a little searching in the Forum you should be able to find them.
