architectural use of SE2d

N/A

Hello out there,
I wonder if there are also architects etcetera using SE? I've just used this for
two evenings and it seems a very usable product also for drawings on different scales.
Is there anyone who can tell me about possibilities for architectural use?
Regards, Kasper

OK to answer my own question, I think it will be possible in a nice way. I still
have two questions; is there a way to use coloured lines related to layers. For
architectural use its very handy to use presets for lines for every different layer
The other thing is about X-refs. I see that x-refs from acad are loaded very well,
but has Solid Edge also a x-ref system, or maybe a workaround?

Certainly it is possible after the event: once it is all draw and lines set to the
correct layer, in version twenty you can right click the layers and select "Show
only" - make sure everything is in the same line font.
Alternatively you can keep all layers shown and use the selection filter set to
"Current layer only" and change active layers selecting all and recolouring the
entities.
I know of companies that are designing double glazing and fire doors and cladding
(three different companies) on the software, all kind of relate to the architectural
domain.

You can look at the setup for Architectural drawing
if you download the free Solid Edge textbook.
http://engr-tech.com Click on Solid Edge icon
Page 76 is the section on Architectural.
You have to provide your own scale between model space
and the working sheet. I list some common scales.
Because scaling is set between model and working space
there is only one scale per document.
Use one document for 1/4" = 1'-0" floor plans.
Another document for 3/4" = 1'-0" details.
Input format (7'-3 5/8") 7'(space) 3(space) 5/8" {use the ' and " marks)

Jerry,
You can have more than one viewport per drawing sheet and you can independantly
scale each one.
Try drawing a large scale rectangle with a detail in each corner.
You can designate one drawing view for the overall rectangle and several smaller
views at a larger scale to show the details in each corner.
You can even use independant layer control on the different views, so you can chose
to show details or not on the overall view.
This can also be achieved by using the "insert detail view" button just below the
"insert 2d model view" button.
