    Grid extension past scope box

    Hi all,

    How do I change the distance past the scope box a gridline extends? Also, can it be modified per grid type? I have a hex grid bubble that has the point "up" in both directions ("Hex N/S" and "Hex E/W") and only want the up/down grids to change length.

    The second question is preferred but not necessary. I could change the width of the scope box I suppose.

    TIA
    John

    Well looks like I answered my own question. Propagate Extents is working for my immediate purposes. Guess I would still like to know if you can change the default distance, tho...

    Don't recall a user accessible setting for the offset from the scope box, sorry. Essentially beyond the scope box is a 2D setting so there is an assumption that you'll adjust it per view, because you'll "need to". Propagate Extents will help pass the change along. Should be able to create different types that have different heads but you can't have one type active in this view and a different in that...unless you embrace a work around like using Design Options for the other grids.

      I knew about Propagate Extents but never understood it till now, and just saved a boat load of work on our current project. This would have been pretty handy to know several projects back,..oh well. Steve's post is from 2011, but very relevant today.

            Your elevation needs to be perpendicular to the gridlines for them to show up in the view.

              In order to have the grids display in an elevation view, the view would need to be perpendicular to the plane of the grid. So...for your example, I'm thinking you need two elevations that you can display side-by-side on a sheet
              .

                There is an approach we can take to deal with grids at angles but it isn't simple. It's not hard but extra work. I wrote about it HERE. The essence of the technique is:

                involves a generic model family that contains simple lines in plan to provide something to locate properly in a view. It then uses a symbolic line drawn in the Front Elevation to act as a "Grid Line". He places this family in the project at the intersection of a grid and the element that is parallel to the intended view. The line in the Front View of the family then appears in the elevation or section view...

                  Guys, is it possible to make section cut in this way?

                    No. You'll need to do it as two sections and place them side by side on the sheet if desired.
