How we can define 2D Tags/Symbols with Rotate option?!?

Hi to all,

Now after while i just want to share one tricks with you, which i shared in BILTANZ 2018,

This is very useful tricks and i’m sure when you are delivering projects, you will face with this issue or you already face with it.

Just take a look to below picture, did you saw this before? one Tag with two label text, for example : Type Name, Column Location.

 

 

But, but because you need to present this label text with different direction you have to make duplicate from that and you have to define extra parameter for visibility to say for 45 degree which item should be presented, or for vertical and Horizontal.

let’s finish this story one time at all.

Just define one new Generic Annotation, you can say this should be Furniture Tag or any other Tag.

 

 

 

Define Label Text as you need and define right location regarding to reference point of two reference plane.

Go for another Generic Annotation Family, you can call that “For Angle Definition”. Define one annotation line like below picture,

Now just load it into your Furniture Tag Family and define location for placement like below picture.

Select Generic Annotation Family “For Angle Definition” and label text object and put them in the group.

 

Define one Reference Line with 45 degree like below picture and make it Pin.

Now you need to define one Angular Dimension between Reference Line and that annotation line from “For Angle Definition” family.

Call that “Overall Angle” and define another parameter “Angle”. In formula row for Overall Angle define this ” Angle+135 “.

Select angular dimension and make it change to Overall Angle.

As you can see in below picture, suddenly you will get sort of result like reverse for you text element.

 

Go for edit group and make edit your group according to below pictures and step that you can see.

 

Make click and drag on the grip that you can see and do this clock wise .

 

You will get result like below picture and say Finish Edit mode for group.

 

Move you group from reference location like below pictures to the center of family, which is intersection of two reference plane.

 

Like below.

 

Now go to family “For Angle Definition”  select annotation line and say turn off visibility. Load it into your Tag family.

 

Orwrite Existing Family .

Now you can define new family type regarding to any angle as you want. Like H,V,30,45,60 or any other.

 

 

Next trick will be next week.

Enjoy,

Behzad
