Learn about creating primary views in Design Options and accepting them in the main model.
- [Instructor] So now you've done a great job bedazzling your model and making it look really good for presentation documents, but now we need to go and create construction documents and we need to make those look just as pretty. So the first thing that we're going to do is we need to make sure that we accept the design options that we had chosen from our previous phase so that we can go ahead and start to create construction documents for those.
So the first thing I'm going to do is I'mma come down here to my design options dialogue box, and of course this is after you've also archived your model, and make sure you put it somewhere. I can't tell you how many times I've had to actually go back to an archived model and pull another scheme out because all of a sudden a client wanted something from that scheme. So always, always, always archive your model with the previous schemes or options in them just in case you need to go back to 'em because what we're about to do, they're gonna completely take 'em away, and once they're gone, they're gone.
So we're going to approve the kitchen configuration that the client has chosen, and for the sake of what we're doin', we're gonna click on scheme A. So what you first need to do is you need to make sure that it is set to primary. If it's not already set to primary, all you would do is just click on this option and say make primary, but right now, our scheme A is our primary, so we're good to go. The next thing you wanna do is now you wanna accept it, so we're gonna go back up to the option set itself, and we're gonna click on accept primary.
From here it's gonna give us a warning, just so you know, anything that you created in any other scheme, any other views, any other schedules, that are associated with those schemes, is going to delete and they're going to be gone. So you may lose some views, but the only views that we really did a lot of work on were scheme A so those are gonna stick around. So we're gonna tell this yes, and it's just gonna let you know what other views are being deleted. There seem to be none that we have to worry about, so we can go ahead and click delete, and we can keep goin'.
You'll notice over here, let me hit close on this, in your project browser, we only see scheme A now. Anything that said scheme B or scheme C on it, it's completely gone. So now that those are gone, you can even go through and remove the wording on scheme A as well, or maybe remove this view because you have one now. Now we're all back to everything being in the main model.
