Getting drawing view borders inline.

Good day,

 

Qeustion:

Is there a option to easily get the drawing view borders inline with each other?

 

Now we draw a line and move the point to the line and in snaps on it and remove line later agian, but this can be done easier I hope Man Very Happy. This snap hasn't been in SE for long now I think it has been added in ST6 or ST8.

 

Picture just as information, drawn as a reference.

RMB the drawing view and select Create Alignment

then from the command bar you can align the center of the view or based on geometry keypoint.

Hello @Johnson_BigMatt,

 

Thank you for the response but you didn't understand my qeustion. Getting view alignment is not what i meant, the thing is when you put the border on we want to align those to get an more profesional view.

I wish you could use constraints between views, it would make our life easier for setting up drawing templates if the **bleep** objects would stay put when they change size from one job to the next. Same goes for break lines, I wish I could constrain them with driving dimensions so the view is always the same length regardless of the length of the actual object.

If you are talking about the background for the title block.

 

I get things located by adding a circle to the title block, then edit the circle to 0,0

Then you have a starting point to work from.

Seems like in this case you could leave DV borders off and draw a box around one view, maybe make it a block or group, and copy it from/to a common origin point.

I understand were you going for, it's not really nice because the updates and names are all controlled by our own program.

Sometimes i wished I had my own personal Siemens programmer available Man Tongue, sometimes our support company thinks we go to far anyway with controlling SE.

I will say that in all my years of experience I've never encountered anyone who had this requirement. But that's just me.

Hi @Sander-NL

 

 

 

the only answer I can give is, taht with ST10 You will be able to snap view borders to lines.

And due to there is a new option in ST10 You also can snap to geometry on the background sheet.

Just did it here 30 seconds ago!

 

 

 

Edit:

and to clarify

 

You also can create horiconatl/vertical alignments (but not permanent) to any points on the background sheet.

So if You have an oriantation marker somewhere on the side border, You can use that for horiconatl alignment of views.

And to be exactly, You cann ot move the view to those orientation amrkers but You can resize those views to them

 

 

 

Edit 2:

and You also can put those background lines (grids) to a specific layer, which will be set to hidden after view aligning

 

 

regards
Wolfgang
