Hi All,

 

I have a question regarding Grids I hope you can help me with. I have a hexagonal shaped building and when I place Grids on the Angled walls in Plan they don't display in Elevation. If this is not possible as it's not with Curved Grids what is the general work around? How can I display Grids in Elevation for angled walls?

Please see attached jpg image showing North, South, East & West Elevations which display the Grids in their Elevation Views and also the Elevationa: NE, NW, SE & SW which are at an angle and don't display Grids in their Elevation Views.

Thansk,

Peter

Grids will only show in elevation views that are perpindicular to the grid.  Think about this.  Where is the angled grid in your elevation.  It continuously moves because it is at an angle to the view plane so where would the grid line be?  At the view cut plane?  I don't think you would like that.

It's hard to tell for sure from the image, but it appears that your elevation markers on the angled sides of the building are not perfectly parallel to the grids you want to see. Unless the direction of the view is exactly parallel to the grids you want to see (as it is in a typcial N/S/E/W elevation, where you will see the appropriate grids). Try rotating your elevation markers so they are exactly parallel with the grids you want to see in that view.

Thanks for your replies. The Elevation display Grids once the Elevation is Perpendicular and although it's not possible to display Grids in non-perp views a client requested this as he has added the Grids manually in AutoCAD. He can add them manually but it's not ideal. If teh are on an angle in plan they can't display in a non - perp view in Elevation. Looks like if he really wants them he can create fake Grids that look the same.

Cheers, 

 

Peter
