The Design F/X plugin streamlines your ability to work with your office CAD details. From drafting and organization to easy callouts and edits, Design F/X makes details a snap. 

General Usage Instructions

Details Preferences - Details Preferences include settings for detail sizes and callouts.

Detail Explorer - Our detailed organization system that gives you access to your entire detail folder structure directly from CAD. You can use it to see which details are saved where, view a thumbnail image of your details, edit or delete details, and move or copy them to another category location.

Create a New Detail - When you first create a detail, you're initially laying it out at full scale. Once you've initially laid out your detailed configuration, you can finish it with items that do require scale, such as; Dimensions, Hatch Patterns, and Text.

Detail Blocks - Our library of detail blocks contains a wide variety of components you might use in building a detail, from wood framing to metal connectors, masonry units, pre-cast concrete trim, plant container sizes, irrigation equipment, etc. 

Detail Enlargement Tools - When building details you'll often find yourself needing to provide a close-up view of a detail component that shows a more intricate and detailed view of that component. One of the biggest challenges in creating these enlarged sections lies in maintaining the same dimensions between the main object in the detail and its close-up component. Our Detail Enlargement tools make this process quick and foolproof.

Detail Annotation & Callouts - Build your details with our diverse set of callout styles and other annotation tools.

Save Your Office Details - Once you've placed a Detail Template, you can save that detail into our detailed system. You'll then be able to access your detail from the Detail Manager and the Detail Explorer.

Use Your Details in a DWG - There are several ways to add detail to your project, this page will guide you through them.

Details & Refnotes - Want to place a site object or hatch? Try using Reference Notes. Our Reference Notes (RefNotes) tool allows you to place site amenities, mulches, and any other site object you can think of - while also assigning data such as cost by unit, area, length, or volume.

List Your Details in a Schedule - Once you've associated a detail with a Reference Note and placed it in your DWG, you can list that detail in the Reference Note Schedule.

Detail Callouts - Graphic symbols that indicate the detail number and sheet number of a particular detail location. This callout type can be one of two variations: a "dumb" callout called a PlaceHolder Callout, or a "smart" callout called a Detail Callout. You can use these callouts within details, or in Paper Space to call out details.
