Recommended Posts

i have my Roof Plan View layer set on, and looking at the roof plan.  I want to send this view to a CAD Detail, but is seems that isn't possible?  If so, how do I do that?  Thanks.

I was going to explain but Michael put it quite simply. ^_^

When I send to Cad Detail from view, it does that, but the roof planes are still roof planes and not cad lines.  Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks everyone, but even looking at the video, it appears that the roof planes are either still planes or they're polylines as the entire roof plane "lights up" when you select one of the lines.  I don't see a way to make them single lines so that I can trim them to look the way I want them to show on the Roof Plan.  Confused.

You can disconnect individual lines.

Solver, not sure how to do that.

Click a line, look in the Edit Toolbar, or right click a line an review the context menu.

Just to be clear, when you send your view to a cad detail the roof planes are converted into cad polylines.  You can always tell what kind of object you have by simply looking at the status bar when you select it.

 

You can then edit them just like any other polyline (including using the trim and extend tools).  If you need to edit them as individual lines, then you can use the Disconnect Selected Edge tool.


Some more information about using the cad tools can be found here:

But all of this begs the question, are you sure that you actually want to convert your roof planes into cad and then edit them?  You could get into a situation where what you are showing in your roof plan does not actually match what is in your 3D model.  You might want to let people know what you are trying to do and they may have some better suggestions for how to get what you want.
