    yes and No, the Assembly tool (and resulting Assembly Views/Sheets) are a *subset" of the Drawing Set for the model. So once you create the assembly, and then the Assembly Views for the Window, the only sheet these views can go on is a sheet that is specific to that assembly. You'd have to have a separate assembly for esach window type in the project. If you made an assembly that contained all the window types, then the views would all show all of the window types as the are placed in the model.

    It`s nice to see the shedule of parts. I think this can be a schedule enhancement too
    And the propertie palete of a part can be observed

    For years I've had to duplicate roofs in order to make the slate layer oversail the timber eaves/structural layer and it would be nice if at last the roof layers could be unlocked to achieve this.
    Just a question really, but why did you have to wait for a new feature all those years when you could have used an in-place void sweep to cut the roof's eave profile however you wanted by sketch/loaded profile?

    Hmm, I tried that in the early days but there is more to it than just creating the eaves as the verge slates need to overhang also and the quickest, cleanest method seemed just to create a slate roof with a structural roof under and where needed a plasterboard sloping ceiling under that. The separation of the elements was useful but tedious for rooflight penetrations.

    I'll have another look at that approach though, thanks.

    Oh I get your problem a bit clearer now, we've encountered the same when wanting to elaborate on our models. In the first, we'll make a roof-does-all sandwich construction (and often get away with it for the entirety of documentation as we use SIPS alot! ) but then we always model our ceilings seperate (to tag/colour override in our RCPs) and will generally end up with something like the below, using in-place model edits to define our edges "nicer" for elevations and "big scale" sections :



    but then encounter, as you say, the issue with penetrations. When we had to consider between-structure voids recently on a project (not using SIPS) and modelled roof, trusses & ceilings seperate, I was so glad to learn we'd not be having any skylights!

    So I guess, I'm not entirely sure how this new "peel away" tool is going to get around these kind of real-world working issues all that much? Or would Autodesk have us use shaft openings everywhere? Maybe it's something for another thread...

    That looks pretty good, thanks for showing it

    I never see anything so new - I tend to only get involved in roofs like this, for better or worse
