    "Double" Grid line ?

    Can´t really think of a good way to deal with this...

    I´m modeling an existing building, where they originally used some "double" grid lines, which act like just one grid, with one bubble head...

    Option 1:
    Use two grid lines, and turn of the bubble on one of them (Remaining bubble will not center between the two grids)

    Option 2:
    Use one grid only, and add a ref. plane to each side of it (Will not print as two grids)

    Option 3:
    Create a custom detail component

    What else could be done to achieve this ? Please refer to the attached image, thanks. :beer:

    Personally I would use a normal grid line and an annotation line either side.

    Looks like the only difference is to define the property boundary. If you wanted it to look the same you would just pull the grid line back to the bubble.

    So it would still work as a grid and the drawing would 'look' right to the original.

      do you really need grid lines "as-built"?
      the original drawing contains a mistake with such grids lines:crazy:. distance between two lines means two grid lines; i.e. construction joints.
      I would keep a single line, on the axis, and modify original dimensions with an extra 4 cm.
      If you really need to keep the shape as original, take option 1.:beer:

      That's just advices!! good luck.

        The downside I see to using annotation lines is that you would have to copy them to all the plans that have the double grid lines.
        If there are changes, then there is the issue of coordinating that change on multiple sheets.
        I feel that the way to go might be with a reference plane (just make sure that there are no unwanted reference planes when you activate it to plot in the print dialog)

          Just put two gridlines there. Thats the way it should be anyway. You can remove the grid heads on that one if you really need to.

            It´s not only for "as-built"... I´m gonna have to deal with these whacked grids in some way or another - The owner wants to put an additional floor level on top of the existing 1st and 2nd floor level.
            Normally grids distances (in Denmark at least) are multipliable with 30 cm´s - So yes, I would also consider them to be a mistake, but I just have to deal with them...

            Am starting to think that I´ll make a custom family, using model lines to represent two "fake" gridlines, and attach that to a single "true" gridline (without the line showing)

              I'd have to agree with Aaron. Simply draw 2 Gridlines for this. I would take it for granted that the bubble isn't centered. As you mentioned: you will have to deal with this gridlines somewhere down the line of your project. Creating fake gridlines will only cause problems later on.

                Here is bit of a workaround. Use 3 grid lines locked together. turn off outer grid heads, make center grid line white. this way they move together and you can dimension to either side of center grid line. Not ideal but works.

                If it ain't broke, fix it till it is.

                  Brilliant ! Thank you Mark, that would actually work pretty well
