Displaying windows on level 1 - x10

Recommended Posts

This is a single story plan with all ceilings attached to the shed roof.  Monolithic foundation and no attic.

 

There are two windows assigned to Level 1.  One had a door below on level 0 and the other has a window below on level 0.

All four items display in plan views (making an unrecognizable mess!) and only the Level 0 items are Auto Dimensiones.

 

Is there a way to make Auto Dimension pick up the Level 1 windows, too?

The labels for both windows are there, just one on top of the other, so click on the window object, grab the label and move it slightly outboard of the window to display both labels in plan view, they will show by default in elevation views if window and door labels are turned "on" for the camera set Display Options and in the object's label dialog.

Thanks David.

 

Do you know if there is a way to get the 'Auto Dimension' feature to include the windows assigned to Level 1?

William,  If you are wanting the transom windows to not display in plan view,  you can move them to a custom attic wall that is all layers of "Opening (no material)" and will not display in 3D.  Then just set the Absolute elevation for the windows.

Manually you can do whatever you want, Auto Dimensions usually default to level zero windows, manually you can dimension however you like by manually adjusting the dimensions from level zero to level one. Though common Architectural practice for such windows is to symmetrically place them,

floor to floor.

I usually create a floor plan for each floor so all windows are shown in those floor plans and level one, two, three are usually aligned to each other floor to floor.
