auto story pole question

Recommended Posts

My auto story pole only finds the outer ceiling heights.  is there a setting that will pick them all up? For example, in the pic below, I have to manually call out the entry ceiling.

did you try adding Ceiling finish and Highest Ceiling  to the Marks to include ?

 

it maybe a reach issue too , ie it doesn't see that ceiling if say reach is only 25% , try 100% as a test perhaps then dial it down as needed.

Not sure if you realize this or not, but you can manually drag out a new marker on that same dimension string.

I thought that too, but it happens on the other side too, which has a ceiling as well

So what you're saying as that you would like Chief to automatically label every ceiling height in the plan when running an Auto Story Pole dimension?

 

If so, I'm kinda curious...how are you going to clarify the potential confusion on your own plans?  Would it not be just as efficient and probably eliminate errors if you were to just continue manually pulling off the additional markers?  I don't know, just throwing a thought out there.  I imagined having Auto Story Pole do what you're describing on a plan with a lot of ceiling heights and I'm not thinking I would personally like a bunch of "Rough Ceiling  - 1st Floor" dimensions to sort through.

youre probably right. there may have to be some level of magic involved in what im asking. is there anything wrong with suspending reality and just getting what I want?
