Automatic Labeling in Elevations (Walls, Roofs, Material Regions)

Recommended Posts

I have been working on a system of automatically labeling in Elevation Views for the following:

  • Walls (Exterior Layers - Interior Layers)
  • Roofs (Material Layers)
  • Material Regions (Material Layers - actually works for both Walls and Floors)

In order to make it work I have named my Wall Types with a description of the wall assembly layers.

For Roofs and Material Regions I have had to use specifically named Chief Layers - again with a description of the assembly layers.


I use some custom macros to read those descriptions and format them into labels depending on the View (Layer Set Name).

This system works well, but requires some detailed Wall Type Names and Layer Names.


It would be much less complicated if there were attributes for the above objects that included the thickness and material names for the assembly layers. 


IAE, I will be setting up a macro package to provide this sort of detailed labeling.  Anyone interested in this can send me a PM.
