I have read several topics about this subject, but am not sure I found a good answer (or I hope there is a better one).
I just installed VisArq 2, after trying the previous version a while back. I concluded at that point that de software was not developed enough to become a big part of our office. I am giving it another shot now.
I just imported the IFC model of the engineer, which looks nice in Rhino. I have been able to give the different objects a hatch, for plans and sections.
If I understood correctly, you advice against using live plans. So I am guessing I put a plan block, in modelspace, that I update when I want to make plots, right?
I was hoping to create several layouts (8 A1’s for the plan, 6 for sections and elevations) in the Rhino layouts.
However, if I add a detail to one of these, the hatch scales get messed up. So modelspace looks fine. The block looks fine, but on the layout, the hatches are scaled with a factor 50, making them invisible. Of course I don’t want a 1:1 print, but a 1:50. How do I do this? Some prints we are making are 1:100, some 1:200 and some 1:500. I don’t understand how I can get the hatches to adapt to this, and I don’t want to change settings, whenever I am printing in some scale.
It seems to me that this is one of the most basic operations, of making a 3D model and being able to communicatie this properly on a drawing. So I hope I overlooked something!
