I have run across a common misconception about the Factory Design Suite and that is it’s ability to work with elevations. This post will talk about a few different ways to work with elevations and some of the functionality that lives inside of this unique set of tools. The main tool I will use is creating sub-layouts that I relate back to layers but really they are sub-assemblies. When creating a sub-layout you have the ability to offset the original flush constraint (consider it a work plane) any positive or negative distance. Take a look at the video and like always if you have any questions please feel free to reach out to the cadgeek team. CAD.Geeks@tatatechnologies.com

Speaking with one of my co-workers Joshua Hunt he gave me the idea for this post. He was recently at a customer doing some AutoCAD Electrical customization when he learned that the customer wanted to have a master sheet containing all the drawings that made up a given project. Of course that is easily solved by just using the xref command that has lived inside of AutoCAD forever. It’s your choice of course if you want this sheet to be part of your actual project but to keep items simple at least place this file in the folder with your project dwg’s to ensure simple updating of the xref’s. Let’s Take a Look!!!
