ANGLED ELEVATIONS

Recommended Posts

I built my plan at an angle.  now I can't get a cross section that is 90 degrees to my building.  Any ideas?

Sorry if I'm not fully getting this but can't you just take the camera view from 90 degrees off the plan?

Just shoot a new cross section at any angle you want.

Scott,

Create a new "Cross Section/Elevation".  You can set the direction as you are placing the camera.

Its not that easy.  you can't pick what angles it moves. I even turned on my angle snap grid.  but that only moves in 10 degrees increments.  What If I only want to move it 2 degrees?  I can't seem to do custom angels with this.  Thanks for the help.

how do you change your angle snap grid to move by only 2 degrees?

Turn off angle snaps,  draw a construction line perpendicular to the wanted view direction,  now shoot a camera shot along that construction line that is perpendicular to the view....  the camera should snap to the construction line.

Defaults, Plan

Allowed Angles - Additional Angles

 

Scott's method works perfectly as well.

Draw a CAD line roughly perpendicular to the elevation you want to shoot. Select the line and use the Align>Perpendicular command to align the line perpendicular to the elevation. Turn on your Snaps, enter the Cross Section/Elevation command and snap the camera to the CAD line.

 

EDIT: Scott beat me.

Got it,  thanks.  I assume that applies to the cad line and not the camera.  The parallel/perpendicular does not work for camera. It does work for the line that you may want to use to get the direction of the camera correct.   Joey posted one of those cryptic posts that someone can spend 10 minutes figuring out,  thanks Joey.

      Looking for design partner for upcoming projects. My previous designer used Chief and he is too busy to take on additional work. Ideally looking for someone who may have building experience in addition to being a designer. Looking for someone who can deliver preliminary floor plans and elevations to facilitate proof of concept, someone who can design to specific standards for ARC review and submission standards. The designer will need to understand page naming conventions and all related requirements for the city of Bend Oregon for streamlined permit submission. Structural drafting and coordination with structural engineers.

      Does anyone know how to change the decimal under the story pole marker lines? I've attached a picture, it's the numbers circled in orange. I would like to get rid of them completely as some of my story pole markers are close together and this takes up extra space.
       
      Thank you in advance!!
