    Is anyone having to submit supply and waste plumbing ISO’s or 2d plans in their plan sets, residential or commercial? If you are can you please share your workflow? Are you building it into your model and exporting it layout or drawing them directly in layout? Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated. I’m currently drawing them in layout. The issue for me is layout gets bogged down, gets slower as I draw more in the layout file.

    Hello, Ruben.

    That is a great question. I’ve been asked to provide Plumbing ISO’s as well and like to hear more about how others handle them.

    Hmmm….I’m starting to do my electrical plan in sketchup. I created dynamic components like the condoc doors for each. Still working it out as far as showing existing, demo and new. But I think it’s a matter of adding additional “scenes” or “tags” in condoc configurator…..I’ll let you know how it goes.

    Great question!

    First instinct would be to add a ConDoc Tag, ELEMENT_Iso Diagram.  Draw/model the diagram right in place with your model.  Group it.  Tag it.

    You will need to create another perspective drawing using the Configurator.  Only tag turned on would be ELEMENT_Iso Diagram.  No need to assign levels or any other tags.  Keep it simple.

    I worked up a quick prototype you can download here.  Keep in mind that if you have already created scenes using the ARCHITECT drawing set, then load this one, it will add a new ELEMENT_Iso Diagram tag.  The default behavior for new tags is to be visible in existing scenes, so you may need to go back and turn the new tag off and update a few scenes.  Should not be a big deal though, just a heads up!

    Let me know how it goes!

    Mike …… thanks much for the suggestion and the initial leg work. I’m going to try this in the next week on my next CD project. I’ll be sure to post letting everyone know how it goes
