Drawing Set Overview

In this tutorial, we will walk you through how to effectively use the ConDoc Configurator, a valuable tool that allows you to create your own ConDoc. You can either start from scratch, which we'll do in this lesson, or open up a drawing set that has been previously created, and then modify it to your own requirements.

The focus of this tutorial will be to provide a solid understanding of how the ConDoc Configurator operates, along with best practices and helpful tips for effective usage. We'll be working with a basic model, composed of a roof, walls, doors, windows, and floors, differentiating between interior and exterior aspects. The aim is to keep the process straightforward and focus on mastering the ConDoc Configurator tool rather than getting tangled up in complex layer lists.

Specifically, you will learn:

  1. Understanding the Basics of the ConDoc Configurator: Here, we'll introduce you to the ConDoc Configurator tool. We'll explore its interface, understand the different components, and look at how to start from scratch.
  2. Creating and Adding Layers: In this section, we'll delve into the process of creating and adding layers using the ConDoc Configurator. We'll focus on the standard default ConDoc prefixes.
  3. Assigning Layers to the Model: Once we have our layers ready, we'll assign them to different components of our model. We'll explain how to switch between different modes (design or draft), and how that affects the layers assigned.
  4. Saving and Sharing .condoc Files: Lastly, we'll show you how to save your drawing set as a .condoc file. We'll discuss how this file can be shared across teams, thereby standardizing the way everyone works.

This tutorial will lay the foundation for adding each different ConDoc drawing in upcoming lessons. By the end of this course, you will be well-versed in the ConDoc Configurator tool and be able to employ it effectively in your projects. Remember, practice is key. The more you familiarize yourself with this tool, the more efficient you will become. So, buckle up and get ready to dive into the world of the ConDoc Configurator!
