Any good site plan house placement videos?


Recommended Posts

I have terrain and a bunch of traced elevation lines on my plan. The lot isn't a straight square, and the current hill is at an angle to the lot.

I would like to find an easierish way to move my terrain around in relationship to my floorplan, including rotating it and such.

I've been using a plan view that has only the terrain and associated layers active, but then I can't see the floorplan in relationship to the terrain I'm trying to place.

Is there any tutorial video someone's made showing this? Moving the terrain, changing the working plan view to see where the house is, then changing it and selecting everything, bump it again, repeat, is getting a little old.

 

Thanks!

Turn on the floorplan layer display.

In regards to seeing the floor plan in relation to the terrain, do as Eric suggest, or turn on your "Wall Normal" layer (or " Wall foundation") and lock it.  This way you can move, rotated your terrain easily.  Can even dimension off the walls.  I do this when I am positioning a house on a tight lot.
