Join Paul J. Smith for an in-depth discussion in this video Grids and levels, part of SketchUp for Architecture: LayOut (2015).
- So we're now in chapter ten and four, grids and levels.…And this is really a consolidation…of the technique taking information from the scrapbook…and then adding it to the drawing.…Now I've created some level indicators.…so I've got these things…which will be used on the elevation.…And I've also got some grid line indicators.…And I've created four different versions of these…so that the text is always upright…and correctly orientated.…
So if you just zoom into this,…the positioning of this grid line is gonna…be dependent on the construction method.…Now as this is sort of a cavity wall construction out…of brick work and block work then I will position…this really on the outside edge.…But say it was timber frame or some other type…of construction you may want to position…this centrally on the main structural supports.…That is gonna be dependent on the construction…and certainly down to you to decide.…But the process of adding these is extremely simple.…Once they're positioned, then if you want…to adjust the length of this line,…
