Hey guys just wondering how to show typical details (eave detail, Footing/Pad detail)

If I have a typical detail that I want to put in every job which is the best way I could do this?

Using symbol or something to put it in.I will want to show the cross referencing with the section to.

 

I was thinking do a call out of the section then hide everything and put a symbol in..Or is there a proper / better way to do this?

 

Thanks in advanced.

Import your typical detail in a drafting view (2d elements only). You can do this by using cut and past method or import a drafting view from another project by inserting view from another project file (look for it in the insert tab). Once you have set this up, you can use call out to to refence this view. The key to referencing a drafting view in a call out is to remember to toggle on "reference other view" in the option bar before you pick point to create the callout. Now you can pick a view from the drop down list in the option bar to link to your callout.

I hope this help.

If you have a large library of details, I recommend making them each their own family.  That way, you can drag and drop them into the project as needed.  If there are a number of details that are ALWAYS on your projects, you can inport the detail families into your default template and have them ready to go on a sheet.

Lizard - I disagree with you on this.  Details should never be families.   Detail components - yes but not details.  To edit the detail for a project would be cumbersome.

 

I suggest you keep your drafting details in a library, detail project.  We actually place them on a sheet in the library project so they can be easily viewed.  Then you can easily transfer single or multiple details from this project.  << Very fast.

WWHUB,

 

If they are details that never change,the ease of changing them will never be an issue and it is far easier than having to open a project and transfer project standards.  We do this for things such as a typical ridge vent, a typical footing, etc.  We also use it for manufacturer's details that we add to our sheet (which we SHOULDN'T be modifying).  Details that are project specific would not fall into this category, but Jamie351's question was for, "a typical detail that I want to put in every job".  So, in THIS SPECIFIC instance, I still hold this is the best option.
