2D Symbols for Demo. plan

Recommended Posts

I'm new to Chief, I'm using X8

 

I'm working on my first addition/remodel project using Chief. I have been trying to find 2D symbols for bathroom and kitchen fixtures that I can show as dashed lines that will represent the fixtures

being removed. I've looked everywhere I can think of and have not found any 2D symbols of bathroom or kitchen fixtures. Is there a way to convert a 3D symbol into a 2D symbol that will only show

up in a plan view and not in a perspective view?

 

Thanks,

 

Mike

In your plan view, CAD---> Cad Detail From View. Then clean them up and save them as needed in the library.

place object in plan -anywhere-CAD, CAD block management, find the CAD block and select insert. Unblock, open, change line stile to dashed, reblock.

beat me to it.

Mike, if you're still coming to the meeting tonight, I'll show you how to do this.

I usually just put these fixtures on a demo layer with a dashed line, and turn off the layer in a perspective view. No separate 2D symbol required.

 Stop it  Richard,  just stop it,  you are making things too easy.  ......  But wait...  suppose you have a wall mounted light fixture hanging on a wall that is being demo'd....  that wall mounted light fixture might seek out the closest wall... therefore being incorrect......  maybe  I am  over thinking things.

      I have been searching for a simple 2D tile pattern that I'm unable to find anywhere on the Web (CA, 3rd party, manufacturer); although do have an inquiry with a national tile manufacturer to see if they have the desired pattern file which could be inserted into their manufacturer's Library. The tile pattern is as follows: 6"h/6"h/4"h, staggered/offset bond, lengths of tile/brick could be 12"-14"L. I'd be happy with just the horizontal joints, as verticals would be a bonus. Assistance is appreciated.
