Import Plan into New Plan file

Recommended Posts

Might be a silly question, but I designed a building and have need of pulling the entire building into another existing plan file, to place the building onto a different terrain model.

 

In essence I'd like to be able to design buildings as templates "so to speak" and import/place them in any subsequent newly created plan file...

Do you need something other than copy/paste?

Okay so I turned off the dimensions layer and copy is now possible.  Thanks for the tip.

Have you selected something?

 

Try Edit>Edit Area>Edit Area (All Floors)

But it does not pull all the floors.  So, is there a way to copy the entire structure and paste it into a new plan file?

yes, create a 3D symbol of the building and place it in the Library

 

then place that symbol in the next plan

 

I use this method whenever I have multiple buildings

each building is a separate plan

 

then I have a Master plan with the terrain

 

this gives me more control over the roofs and framing etc without interfering with the other buildings

 

the top gurus can do it all in one plan but that takes skills to manage it all properly
