REF SET QUESTION

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to create a REF SET layerset to use with my 2nd floor architectural floor plan.  What I want is to have all lower level walls appear as dashed lines...if there is no floor above the wall.

 

- I know I could put some of the walls on different layers...and then turn on only the walls that were on the specific layer.  But...is there a better or simpler way to accomplish this?  Maybe I should just use CAD lines?  

 

- I thought if I "filled" the rooms with solid white color it would hide the walls below...but that doesn't seem to work either.

You are on the right track.  Use the fill and then make sure you are using DRAWING REF SET FIRST.  

 

The only issue is the walls below will show at openings.

Thanks Scott...that did it.  The trick is "DRAW REFERENCE FLOOR FIRST"

Questions regarding REF SETS and PLAN VIEWS;

 

- Do any of you create PLAN VIEW SETS for 1/8" scale drawings...possibly an electrical plan view...or maybe a view set for a home owner showing furniture placement?

- Are any of you creating a separate "View Set" that just shows "ceiling framing"...either on the first or 2nd floors?  I would think you'd want to keep this separate from "roof framing views".

 

- How do you handle "roof framing" views when you have framing on two (or multiple) levels?  Say...a one story garage and and two story main house?  (see attached pic).  Do you just use a unique "Reference Set" to refer to the framing on the hidden floor?

      Is there a way to show the hips/ridges of a roof either above or below using a reference layerset?  Am I missing something?  The edges of the roof appear (see pics) but the hips/ridges do not.  I've tried this with some of the Chief OOB templates...and I get the same result.  
       
      Thanks...

      X10 for sale $1,000, this does not have SSA.

      When you unlicense  x11 it also unlicenses x10 or if you unlicense  x10 it also unlicenses x11. That is fine and I understand why it is being done. However is should also work the other way if I license x11 for my laptop then it should give me access to x10 or vise versa..
      Case in point, I licensed x10 on my laptop to go into the field and meet with a client on a job, I have been working on for a while. Unfortunately the drawing had been opened and saved in x11 and was in the wrong file folder. Being in the middle of nowhere without internet connection I was hosed <that's the nice word> thanks to chiefs new way to  license. If you are going to remove access to x10 and x11 if just one is unlicensed then if I license one product the other should be licensed on the same machine it should automatically give access to the other product.
      Chief please fix this MAJOR licensing problem.

      Good Morning!  I am upgrading to x11 this week and wanted to know what to do with x10 and x9 on my desktop.  Can I move these over to a zip drive and retrieve them later if I need to view an old plan that I made?  I'm trying to free up some space on my computer.  I haven't used x9 since I upgraded to x10, so I'm assuming that once I upgrade to x11, I won't be using x10 either.  What do you guys do?
       
      Thanks,
      Jim
