Presentation Description

Building Elevation Line: When I select a building elevation line. We can see that a boundary was automatically created with the depth equal to the width. I drew there are grips for adjusting the width and depth of the object and one to not use the model extents for the height.

Making Elevation in AutoCAD

slide 3:

 In AutoCAD architecture you may create elevation using tools on the Home tab section and elevation panel or from the tool palettes document groups call-out palette. Let’s review the differences in the Home tab section and elevation panel. There are tools to generate section and elevation view of the building but these do not include the annotation symbols more appropriate for construction documents on the tool palette document.

slide 4:

 Group call-outs palette are tools for interior and exterior elevation marks as well as section marks. These create sections and elevations along with the appropriate construction document annotation on the Home tab section and elevation panel. I’ll use the elevation line tool at the elevation line start point prompt. I’ll pick below and to the left of my building. I’ll pick a second point below and to the right of the building which creates building elevation line object that has width and height and ends the command.

slide 5:

Building Elevation Line:  When I select a building elevation line. We can see that a boundary was automatically created with the depth equal to the width. I drew there are grips for adjusting the width and depth of the object and one to not use the model extents for the height. The model height is used by default on the building elevation line tab. There are three panels generally modify and live section in the properties palette.

slide 6:

Dimensions Group:  Dimensions group is the subdivision option we will review this in a different lesson. This allows you to control the color property of entities within different subdivisions with a building elevation line still selected on the modify panel.

slide 7:

Elevation Dialog Box:  I’ll click the generate elevation tool which opens the generate section elevation dialog box at the top is a radio button to create a 3D section elevation object. This generate a single 3D object the 2D section elevation object with hidden line option creates a 2D flat elevation. That is always viewed from the top view direction from the style to generate drop-down lists you may choose different styles that you have customized in style manager.These styles allow you to control what the linework looks like in the elevation on the bottom left the current display set section. There are currently zero items selected.

slide 8:

Object Tool:  So I’ll click the select objects tool. I’ll select the entire model that right-click. Since this is the first time using this tool. I’ll select the new object radio tool. If it was existing and I wanted to replace it. I would pick the replace existing radio button selecting the pick point button. I’ll pick a spot below and to the left of all the drawing objects then click OK to dismiss the dialog box.

slide 9:

2D Section Elevation:  The 2D section elevation object is created the routine had some trouble with our custom door that was round well fixed that in the editing lesson. I’ll delete both 2D section elevation and the building elevation line object. And now I’ll create elevations a different way on the tool palettes document group call-out. I will pick the exterior elevation mark a3 tool at the prompt specify first corner of elevation region. I’ll pick above and to the left of the model that at the prompt specifies at the opposite corner of elevation region.

slide 10:

Rectangular Shape:  I’ll pick below and to the right of the building. This creates a rectangular shape around the building the edges of the rectangle indicate where the four elevations will be generated from and open the place call-out dialog box. There are three sections in this dialog box call-out only places annotation tags but does not generate elevation objects.

slide 11:

Model Space Views:  If we choose one of the three create options model space views will be created and saved the new model spaces view name allow you to pre names. These views the default names are north east west and south elevation. When created these elevation objects they may be placed in a new or existing view drawing or the current drawing.

slide 12:

Project Navigator:  The use of the phrases views drawing indicates the creation of the type of drawing used with the project navigator. However these views may also be used in projects not utilizing project navigator in the bottom section are options to generate section elevation as well as place title mark and the scale to use for the view boundary as well as an annotation. When this view is dragged and dropped from a view file onto a sheet file in project navigator the view part will be scaled so that the plot scale matches this value. I’ll pick the current drawing button at the prompt specify insertion point for the 2D elevation.

slide 13:

Result:  I’ll pick above and to the left of my building at the prompt pick a point to specify the spacing and direction of elevation. I’ll pick to the right of my first pick the spacing is the distance between the right or bottom edge of the first view created and the left or top edge of the next view. All four elevations are created and labeled the attributes in the view little blocks are using field which is automatically filled in correctly using project navigator to drag and drop these views onto sheet files.
