    Wall Section strategy...

    So this was posted over at AUGI, thought I would ask about it here too...

    How are folks showing multi-level wall sections when they don't fit on a sheet at the required scale? What Rob and I came up with was to create dependent views of a section so that we can split them up on a sheet. Problem is this creates a 1A & 1B when all you want to see is a 1. On floor plan views I would stretch one of the section tags so they are beside each other, and would have to do this for any wall section with this circumstance.

    Anyone have better ideas?

    What if you break a long view into smaller pieces by splitting the crop region, then moving the pieces closer. Then the view fits on the sheet.

      That is what we did originally before creating the dependent views...it was so cutup is was hard to understand what exactly was going on...

        Yes, setting up the view by breaking the crop region into pieces might get a little hard to handle, but it is possible. We have done some wall sections with that method, and it works. Another alternative is this (see attached) : Create a callout view on the building section enclosing the wall to be detailed, then open that callout view, and create several detail callout views . Then work on the individual details, adding annotation, detail components, break lines, etc. Then, on the sheet, arrange those detail views vertically as if they were small pieces of the same crop region. It creates the same effect but it might be easier to handle.

          Do what we all did in the old-pre-computer days. Go to a smaller scale and then use details (callouts) to get to the interesting stuff.

            We played around with that thought.....but when working with this particular client they like specific scales...

              Really, really extended sheet then?
              To be honest, I don't think that you can do this...
