General Usage Instructions

A. Sectionview creation: 

The procedures of section views creation, in brief, can be divided into 6 steps:

  1. Select alignment, sample line group & sample lines to draw section views;
  2. Set the number of section views per sheet (row x column number), row & column gap (spacing), paper size;
  3. Set the minimum distance above and below each section view's sections;
  4. Set the label set and section style/ code set style for sections; 
  5. Set the section view bandset;
  6. (Optional) Set the section view quantity table(s);

Click "Draw individual section views" to see results.

 B. Sectionview layout

  1. Create plot area block in Model space. A plot area in Model will cover the region of a Viewport in Paper space.  Plot area blocks are automatically inserted when drawing section view.  User can manually add, remove, edit Plot area block region later.
  2. Insert Title block or Title Xref in Model space, or chose a Template layout with Title;
  3. Create section view layout.  Each layout covers a sheet.  Viewport and Title block/Title Xref will be inserted to each layout automatically;

C. Printing

Use the App Block to Excel (lite) to export Title block attribute to Excel, edit attribute value in Excel and import back to Autodesk® AutoCAD®

User can print directly from Model space without step B3 and publish layouts or creat a sheetset from layouts

Previous settings are saved on exit & can be reloaded by Reload button at the bottom left.
