I'm trying to replicate a window sill I have on a model in SketchUp. I can import a .SKP file and convert it to a 3D symbol just fine, but then in elevation views, CA wants to show these CAD lines every couple inches for some reason. The 3D view looks just fine, but I do need to be able to create elevation views as well. Is there some checkbox I could toggle and solve this issue?
Can Cad Lines be customized to add words or numbers inside of a cad line?
See attached. Need to add custom notation on these lines. Labeling added?
Does anyone know if it is possible to "explode" cad polylines into individual line segments? All I want is to draw individual cad lines instead of multiple lines being automatically connected together. If I want to use 1 line as a reference line and draw something referencing it, I then later want to go back and erase the reference line I drew. I can't do this most of the time because the lines automatically connect to create a poly line. I am trying to use the cad line tool to draw simple cross sections.
On another note, I think it is possible to draw a line with an angle that is in pitch instead of degrees. I have used it before but I can't seam to find where that setting is.
Much appreciate your help for a newer user!
I am having a hard time doing accurate tile elevations in CA. I'm a kitchen and bath designer and need to be able to show tile installers exactly how the tile is being laid out. I use patterns (brick etc) for renderings but these are not ok for technical drawings. It seems CA cuts the tiles (at top and bottom) when its not necessary and I can't figure out if or how origin points might help me. Basically I need to know how to get patterns to start and end at an exact height or be exactly centered on a sink, etc. Currently I am having to use cad lines to draw the tile elevations which is time consuming and bogs my computer down. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks!
