Creating "LIVE" Wall Sections

Recommended Posts

To create a LIVE Wall Section:

  1.  Use an Orthographic Back Clipped Cross Section
  2.  Adjust the Position of the Camera Callout (Right, Left or Both)
  3.  Set to "Clip to Sides" and adjust the extents.
  4.  Reset the Drawing Scale to 1/2" = 1'
  5.  Select an Annoset/LayerSet combination that is designed for this view and scale
  6.  Add a Story Pole Dimension
  7.  Add Object Specific Annotation
    • User Custom Text Macros (referenced macros with Leader Lines
    • Labels for some Objects
  8.  Auto Detail as needed
  9.  Add Rich Text Title %view.name% as named in the Project Browser
  10.  Add a "Graphic Scale"

Now, as changes are made to the Plan, the Wall Detail will change accordingly.

Here's a simple example.  I didn't fully annotate this but everything you see is automatic. 

 

Framing Labels are reference macros where cut in cross section, the dimensions are of course Auto Story Pole and the Title and Scale are a CAD Block with %view.name%, a scale (text) based on a macro that sees 1/2" in the "Layer Set Name", and a Graphic Scale.

 

Additional annotation can be done manually for wall materials, floor surfaces, insulation, etc.

This looks pretty cool.  Is the entire thing live?...meaning notation, dimensions, etc?

You can do it.  My Framing Labels macro handles almost every possible condition for me - but sometimes it's just as easy to do a simple one using some of the built in object specific macros.  There are not that many things that are able to be automatically labeled in a section view.

This is a Macro Package that labels all Framing Members in Framing Plans, Wall Details and Sections.  The macros can be used either in Labels or in Leader Line Text. 

 

It consists of:

  • Float Class.rb
  • Framing Labels Macro Package.json
    • Framing Labels
    • Framing Labels wo Length
    • Framing Spacing Defaults
    • FrSpecFile
  • Framing Readme.txt

I don't recall if you purchased this package.  It was not included in the "Macro a Month Club" subscription.

If you did purchase it I can send you the latest version at no charge, otherwise, the package is $50.
