How to show floor material breaks and labels on plans automatically

Recommended Posts

I am trying to automatically show the floor breaks and material labels on my plans.

 

ie.  Breakline between the Hallway (Carpet) and the Bath room (Tile).  See attached file for my manual labeling.

 

Is there a way CA will do this automatically on the plans?

 

Thank you in advance.

I use the Room Polyline or a Floor Material Region.  It depends on the job, but either of these will work.

AFAIK there is no automatic method - I manually place symbols to call out transitions and materials - similar to how you've shown in your attached pdf.

Joe, not sure what that would involve to create, but if it's not to much work to make that Macro, maybe Material macro can be added to a Macro A Month Membership.

It already exists in the macros. Just place in either per text box, or paste in in the label.

Just to clarify what Joey said:

 

It's in the "Global>Room Info" section of the macro selection.

I may be wrong, but it appears the OP is looking for a graphical display for the transition point.  If that is what you want, I doubt there is an automatic way to do this....but since its not a common practice to be on a floor plan, its probably going to just have to be done by hand.

Johnny,

 

See post #2 for the graphics and post #4 for the annotation.

That is also my interpretation - not just a line that shows the transition, but a call-out or marker to specify the materials (usually via a schedule) on either side of the transition. I use a different kind of symbol than the OP, but the concept is the same.
