We / My client are still hovering between 2D, 3D and BIM. Modelling has its growing pains but documentation drawings to paper/pdf is an important issue here.
for example We would like to have all sections and views of 2 sub-projects in one 2D drawing with annotations in MODEL space and all paper layouts made up in this file (f.e. several items on iso A0 paper).
And we love to have the conversion from 3D to 2D blocks automated.
Not the bricscad bim way as read in the docs. Our pipeline (and of clients) is based on annotation in modelspace. And making layouts of it. We do not mind to do that manually.
What we did try :
A. putting all views on one sheet using the BIM project browser
basically selecting all sections and views and filling in one and the same filename as destination file
problem : system is not programmed for this, difficult to setup. only one sub-project per file. After moving the blocks and restarting the drawing next morning somehow bricscad was not able to update the 2D drawing anymore
B. Making sheets the bricscad way and importing as block in one file
all views and sections exporting using the BIM project browser in separate files. Then importing the dwg files as blocks in a master drawing.
problems: manual labour: inserting one by one. nested blocks are not updated if there is a change. I also cannot delete these blocks with purge command.
C. making sections in the 3D model itself with bmsectionplanetoblock
problem : levels and grids not in these blocks and manual labor: moving the blocks with copy paste to new 2D file
How do other companies tackle this (essentially multiple views on one sheet)
What we are also struggling with : How to get a 3D view to a sheet (now we make extra layouts with camera views)
