Joe_Carrick Posted January 19, 2022 Share Posted January 19, 2022 I've been experimenting with Cameras to create Details that can be sent to Layout. One of the benefits is that the below the line text can be set as %page_label% so that it coordinates with wherever the detail is located in the Layout. There are a few tricks: The Section View needs to be clipped both horizontally and vertically to contain just the desired detail The Drawing Sheet of the Section View needs to be set to the appropriate size for the Layout. Generally I find that about 6x6 or 6x8 is appropriate for details. The Drawing Sheet should be set to the desired Scale. The Drawing Sheet should be centered on the Cross Section Additional CAD objects, Dimensions and Text should be added to the Cross Section. I'm still experimenting to see if I can coordinate the Detail Number with the Camera and the position on the Layout Page. Essentially, this method has the advantage of greatly reducing the amount of 2D CAD required to create a fully annotated Detail. The Details more accurately reflect the model (including foundation and framing). If the Drawing Sheet is properly sized, the details sent to layout will fit nicely in the available drawing area. If anyone has additional thoughts and/or suggestions, please post them. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
