Locations for fixtures on a cathedral ceiling - Sanity Check

Recommended Posts

Hello All:

 

I am designing a house with all cathedral ceilings on the second floor. The idea is to have all the duct work etc exposed. In some areas I would like to do some sloped soffits for light fixtures. So the question is and it may be stupid is do i place everything on the attic level so that it is on the ceiling?

 

Thanks

Keep them on the second floor, you can adjust offsets in the fixture's open-object dbx. You can also edit offset in 2d sections or 3d space. The delete surface tool an d convert to symbol tools can help you if you have a fixture with a base built for a flat ceiling.

      Hello,
      I am working in this file and the basement ceilings / main floor joists above have disappeared. I checked to see layers are on and now I am at a loss as to why they aren't showing up. I know they are they there because I can see the gap where floor joists should be. 
      Any insight or help would be appreciated!

      Not sure if this is the correct topic area but for some reason, I can not figure out how to display the electrical fixture I just dropped in. Here are the steps I've taken:
      1. create wall elevation (E4)
      2. clip wall elevation in plan view making sure the fixture is well within the limits.
      3. saved, exited, restarted .plan
      4. added light fixture in plan view
      5. opened elevation by double-clicking the callout in .plan
      6. display opens sans light fixture
       
      Sorry had to zip the file... didn't have time to figure out how to shrink it...

      Hi,
      I am trying to figure out how to change the line weights of the 2D symbols in a schedule.
      I create a schedule in a CAD detail, send it to the layout, and scale it to appropriately fit the page.
      However, when I print the layout, the 2D symbols look extremely thick. How can I make the line weights of the symbols thinner?
      I've tried editing within the schedule, and changing the text height to a smaller size (1"), which this works to make the symbols thinner, but then the text is too hard to read.
      Also, is there a way to make a schedule have multiple columns?
      Thanks!!
