Schedules question - 2D blocks

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to control the size of the 2D object in any Schedule?  Where does chief pull this picture from exactly? 

The screen clip below comes from one of Chief's Sample Gallery plans...the Bachelor Plan.

You can change the width of the column to resize the images.

The 3D Elevation image is generated by the program using the same code we use to generate normal elevation views.

 

You can control the size by adjusting the column width.  You may also want to rename the column if you are trying to make them smaller.

 

You can also affect the size of the images by changing the scale options in the schedule dialog.

If you click "Scale Images"...what scale is the program using?  Is this something defined by the user?

Yea...just did.  I know...should have done before posting.  :wacko:

 

So...the the software looks at all the images in the schedule and adjusts each to a "relative" size.  Do I have this correct?

Images posted by Dermot above are from X12.

Just to clarify...

 

The column resizing and ability to have all images use the same scale are both available in X11.

The ability to use the plan scale for some images is a new feature in X12. 

 

You might want to play around with these settings to see what it does to your schedule images.  The results you see will depend on what types of objects you have in the schedule and what kinds of images you are using (2D vs 3D).  In some cases, you may want to have all of the images fill up the box.  In other cases, you may want all of the previews to use the same scaling so that smaller objects actually look smaller compared to bigger objects.  In other cases, you may want the images to be the same scale that they are in the plan.

 

If you find any problems with how the program works or with the documentation, then please feel free to submit a bug report.  If you find that these options don't cover a case that you want, then please feel free to submit a feature request.
