SETTING UP YOUR SKETCHUP MODEL Semi-Off Topic Question
SoftPlan Version:
2014 Plus

Hey Bill,

Very nice article! Here is a question I have for you along these same lines. I know you can import models into SoftPlan to create symbols but can you take those symbols and create interior & exterior doors out of them in a way that the program would use them like a normal opening? 

 

Thank you,

Jerry Quesenberry

Elevation Opening

Each opening has an Elevation Opening assigned to it. If you want to have a specific 3D model for a particular opening you will need to link a 3D model to the associated Elevation Opening.

Assuming you have already created the desired Elevation Opening and assigned it to an opening you can link a 3D model to it by selecting System Library and in the library type select Elevation Openings. Browse to the appropriate Elevation Opening and select Edit Symbol to open the Elevation Opening for editing. Select Link to 3D Symbol. Browse to the appropriate 3D model.
