I have successfully exported my plans, elevations and sections and I have been successfully setting up my pages in Layout. However, I’ve been having troubles exporting a site plan. Its as if Layout does not want to recognize another Plan drawing getting inserted into the Layout folder, despite multiple sections and elevations being added throughout my work. I even tried to trick condoc by creating an elevation, and rotating the cut plane to make a site plan, and yet Layout still did not recognize that it was there.
When I say that Layout does not recognize the drawings, I mean that when I look at the Sketchup Model “Scenes” pull down menu, it does not exist. Even though all of my other drawings are prominently there. My scrapbook shows the drawing I want, and when I bring it in to Layout, and place the drawing, it automatically defaults it to the first floor plan every time.
Any ideas what is going on? Does anyone know a better way to make site plans?May 14, 2019 at 3:39 pm #23670Mike BrightmanKeymaster
First thing I would check for is that you have the right ConDoc Drawing Set loaded up. You will want to make sure you have the “ConDoc 4_ARCHITECT – SU2019.condoc” drawing set loaded (if you are using SketchUp 2019, refer to screenshot).
If you are not using SketchUp 2019, you would want to load the regular “ConDoc 4_ARCHITECT.condoc” set. If you are running the Plan Generator, and elevations and nothing is showing up, that means that the ConDoc Configurator does not know which layers to create for the scenes, until you load a drawing set. Which brings me to the second thing to check for.
Double-check that your layers are all set up correctly using the ConDoc System. If you have any layers with geometry that are not ConDoc Layers, these will also not be recognized when you use the tools to create the drawings. 99% of the time, these will fix the issue you’re having.. the 1% being if you were able to create the scenes, and see your drawings, but they’re still not showing up in LayOut.
For now, try the above recommendation and let us know if it’s still not working. We can look at other solutions if that’s the case. There are some helpful videos under the ConDoc System Section of our tutorials if you want more information as well.
