        Really depends... do you just need it for 2d representations in plan view ? or do you need the full 3D/BIM approach ?

          I did the same thing and went with the 2D plan view. The light fixtures and plumbing fixtures are 3D BIM, but all the circuiting, plumbing lines, etc are just line work. To do it this way, just create a view from your floor plan and turn off all you don't need. Call it a plumbing plan. Create a few line types for HW, CW, SS, Conduit, etc. etc. and draw away with detail lines. It's quick and dirty, but gets the point across.

            I would create all lighting fixtures, plumbing fixtures and sockets and switches as 3D components since I would want to be able to schedule them. he symbols in plan view you could create as a symbol in plan view nested into the 3d component. Linework, I would do in 2D as model lines. If you like, you could create a 3d model for those too, using a simple generic model which only contains a parametrised model line.

              I thought model lines showed up in all views? Why not use detail lines? I'm just wondering. I may have to change my plans depending on your answer. lol

                I think that model lines would show however you wont notice them depending on where you draw them because the will be associated to the active work-plane or face you select. recall the "small dots on my project" thread I've done things with a 3d model / symbolic lines approach just like a door and a door swing.

                  You're right but I would put them on a different subcategory of Model Lines and create a filter for them.
                  I just like the Model Lines cause they can be used for reference in other views when needed. For example in construction views, if I need to create shafts and openings or something you can check if it doesn't intersect with the piping. (also, in Holland it's common to not place plumbing fixtures in these kind of drawings but just show the connectors as a circle with pipe diameter. Then the Model Lines come in handy to place the connectors at the plumbing fixtures)
