Learn about the other type of layer, sheet layers. These provide a way to create a page layout of the final presentation.
- [Instructor] In traditional drafting, annotations,…title blocks and other descriptive elements…are laid out on sheets of paper.…In Vectorworks, sheet layers take our CAD designs…and present them in a stylized and organized way.…Notice in this file, we're currently in a design layer.…The background is an off white color.…Let's go up to our info bar and change our layer…to a sheet layer, S-01.…You notice that the background is now white.…Kind of looks like a sheet of paper.…Vectorworks color codes the different view types…that are currently presented.…
Another thing to consider is scale.…Where design layers can have different scales,…sheet layers are always one-to-one.…This replicates the printed page of scale.…Let's take a closer look at the sheet border.…If we highlight this border,…we can see that it is a separate object.…Title blocks stick to the print area,…but we can double click on this…and we notice that there is a title block connected to this…and we have a dialog box where we can change the information…
