Cabinet/Wall elevations - 3d views of interiors

Hello,

 

I am wondering what people are doing to get the best views inside smaller rooms in a home.  For example, my client wants a wall of custom built cabinetry with a window seat.  I was able to build it all in, but I have to move the adjacent wall in order to view the entire wall of cabinetry, (basically to back the camera far away enough the wall to view it.)  Is there another way to modify the camera, or a trick of some sort?

 

Also wondering if there is a quick way to do cabinet elevations?

Thanks

For interior views I normally set the camera Field of View to a larger number. Generally 85 degrees or better. To do this select the camera icon in SoftView or if you have V2012 you can select the camera from the camera tab. In the Camera Control dialog select Edit and then click on the camera in the overhead view. The Edit Camera dialog will open and you can change the Field of View.

For Cabinet Elevations you can generate them easily if you have drawn in your cabinets on the plan. From the draw menu or tab simply select Cabinet-->Elevate Cabinets. Click on a set of cabinets and place the automatically generated view on the page. If you click on an upper cabinet you will get both the upper and lower cabinet elevations. If you click on just a lower cabinet you will get just lower cabinets.
