Creating Facades from Solids
SoftPlan Version:
2014

Hello all,

I’m in the process of re-creating my common façades into 3d symbols.

I’m looking to do this with the use of SOLIDS, converting it into a 3D symbol and then applying it to future drawings as needed.

However I’ve come across a problem whereby I’m unable to take a section or cut out of a SOLID Polygon??

I’ve tried using several of the SP tools without any luck.

Any suggestions on how best I can approach this?

 

Cheers

Peter.

Thanks
Peter

Softplan will not do that.

Softplan will not do that. Some people prefer to use Sketchup for things like that but there is a way to do it in Softplan.

 

You just need to trace your polygon line into your cutouts.
