- So far in this chapter,…we've seen global object style settings…and view specific overrides…at both the category and the object level.…Sometimes none of these methods is sufficient…to get just the right graphical treatment…in a particular drawing.…In such situations, we have the Linework tool,…our last line of defense, if you will.…With this tool, we can actually modify…the individual edges that make up an element…and vary them as required.…For example, we could make one side of a wall bolder…or we could change the roof overhang to a dash line…in certain areas of the plan.…
The Linework tool can be just what you need…to add that finishing touch to your work…but please remember to use it sparingly.…So I'm in a file called Linework…and I'm in the Level 2 Floor Plan.…And I'm gonna zoom in over here…in this area above the lobby…and you'll see that I've got this Open to Below space.…That's the lobby space down in the first floor.…And then over here is a floor slab…which provides a balcony space…looking down into that lobby space.…

Paul also shows advanced techniques for modeling stairs, complex walls, and partially obscured building elements, as well as adding rooms and solid geometry. Finally, discover how to annotate your drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
