Hi folks, I am trying to teach an old dog new tricks (I have been mostly hand drafting residential projects for the last 40+ years, with occasional forays into Sketchup, illustration programs, etc.)
So I have tried a few things in Shape, and am now trying to bring one into V18Platinum/BIM (trial) . If I can get from modeling existing, adding new, to construction drawings, Ill be happy. So while I have read most of the manual, and understand most concepts, etc, my CAD knowledge is decidedly thin.
So to the immediate issue. The attached drawing is a (rough) shape model of an existing modest house, combined with a shape model of proposed construction, brought into v18. The two initial models were not orientated the same way, so I flipped and flopped UCS, etc to get them aligned, and north up in plan view.
Everything looks ok until I try and generate views. It gives me a ceiling view rather than a plan view, a nice view of the bottom of my floor - and I suspect the sun is buried in the center of the earth.
Where did I go wrong, or more importantly, how do I fix it. TYIA
File is 8mb. Any workflow tips appreciated.
