    Showing Phase II halftone

    I've read a little on phasing, and I don't think this is easily doable, but I'll ask anyway. I need to show Phase II of a house design halftone. Is there an easy way to do that? Maller, I think you mentioned something in a previous thread about overlaying 2 views and using some view templates. Can you expand on that for me?

    Is "Phase II" a future phase? If it's something that hasn't been built, approved, or decided on, wouldn't a Design Option make more sense? Without knowing the history or background of your project, I have the luxury of asking ignorant questions.

      I've typically used a "future" yes/no parameter for that kind of stuff and then controlled it with a view filter, but overlaying multiple views would probably be a little more automatic down the road. I guess it depends on if you want to spend the time setting up multiple views or maintaining the checkboxes if things change.

        Model it in a future phase.

        Have a second view on the sheet set to that Phase, with a new Phase Filter called "Show as Future" and have everything set to overridden when new.

        All things must be set to transparent in that view as well, or it'll cover up the other view.

          I "think" that makes sense Aaron. lol I'll have to get into it.

          Tony, Phase II is a future phase. It's been designed and decided on, but the owner decided to build it later because of cost. I'd like to show it on the plans as halftone.

            The future phase will work for most everything. For 3d views (where you want the phase 1 roof to be over the phase 2 roof & such) it gets trickier - you might be able to do it with more than 1 layered view, otherwise it might be helpful to create a selection set filter of all the phase 2 elements (unless they have another filterable characteristic) and manage it in one view, especially if you aren't adding things to the phase 2 portion.

              Okay, I was making it way more complicated than I needed to. I just created a phase II filter. Used the comment parameter and set it all to half tone. Easy peasy. It doesn't affect any annotations, but I can live with that.

                Are you going to show us what it ended up looking like [compared to that earlier axo ?]
