Demolition Plan

Welcome to this tutorial on creating a demolition plan in 2D CAD. In this lesson, you will learn how to take existing conditions drawings, duplicate them, and transform them into a demolition plan using simple and timeless CAD techniques. We will focus on creating a plan where the elements to be demolished are represented by dashed lines, making it easy to visualize the changes to be made. This approach allows for clear communication and precise planning when undertaking a demolition project.

Specifically, you will be learning:

  1. Creating a Duplicate Page: Learn how to make a perfect duplicate of existing conditions drawings to work on the demolition plan separately.
  2. Setting Elements to Dashed Lines: Understand how to change the line style of existing conditions to dashed lines to represent demolition elements effectively.
  3. Overlaying Existing Conditions: Discover how to paste the existing conditions back onto the demolition plan to show demolished elements as dashed lines.
  4. Adding Annotations: Explore how to annotate the demolition plan with dimensions, notes, and other essential information for clear communication.
  5. Organizing Pages: Learn how to rename and organize the pages in your CAD layout for better project management.

By the end of this tutorial, you will have a solid understanding of how to create a demolition plan using 2D CAD techniques. With a well-organized layout and clear representations of the elements to be demolished, you'll be ready to tackle demolition projects with confidence. So, let's dive in and get started on creating a comprehensive demolition plan that will serve as a valuable tool for your projects. Let's begin!
