Line drawing

Postby Ted Allen » Thu, Nov 03 2005, 6:03PM

Just thought I would post a line drawing for folks like me that had never used it and so they can see the potential for it.

Brian,

That is a wall from the layout that I sent to the line drawing editor and then dimensioned, added notes and copied and pasted the end view.

Forgot to say

That page I had the line enhancement setting raised up so that the hidden lines show. You can lower the line enhancement so that you don't get all the hidden lines if you need it. And you can have multiple pages of different views, single cabs or even parts for details.

Funny thing, I think I have posted on this forum in the past about wishing dimensioning was more autocad like, and lo and behold if I had just checked it out sooner. There it was all along.

Ted,

Which font did you use in you drawing? I kind of like it but can't figure out which one it is.

Thanks
Greg

Greg,

Sorry it took so long to answer. Been gone working in New Orleans and just came home for a visit.

Times New Roman Italic-- I think is the font

That definitely is not Times New Roman Italic. TNR is what you see in the newspaper.

Your right Dan

Postby Ted Allen » Mon, Jan 16 2006, 7:51PM

City Blueprint is the correct answer. Sorry, I got it mixed up with another drawing.

It is a very nice font, Ted. I just reread my post and it sounded pretty harsh. Sorry, I didn't intend that to be the tone.

I don't have that font in my list. Did you download it as a freebe or did it come with somethiing else you have? I do like it and wouldn't mind using it if I can get it at a decent cost.

Thanks,
Greg

I did a search for it on Yahoo and came up with lots of posts about it being a \"misbehaving\" font. I didn't read any of them so I don't know what to gist of the posts were. I found it at http://www.free-fonts.com but haven't downloaded it.

Ted

Have you had any problems with this font?

Thanks, I'll look into it. Just what does a miss-behaving font do?
