Creating and managing sheets

Open BIM Layout offers several options to make it easier to manage sheets. The available actions include the possibility of creating groups, creating new sheets, copying existing sheets and deleting existing sheets.

Within the "Grid" option, users can control the visibility of the grid. The colour of the main and secondary lines can be selected, and the spacing and division of the lines can be adjusted.

Furthermore, in this same section, there is a printing option, which allows us to generate PDF, DWF or DFX versions of the sheets created.

To start working in Open BIM Layout, first of all, a new sheet must be created. To do this, select the desired standard paper size to represent the plan, assign a name to the sheet and add it to a group if necessary. If a previously created template is available, it can be loaded into the program.

The sheet will be drawn on the interface, and its size will be indicated at the top right.

In the "Styles" group, using the "Sheets" option users can create or import sheets. Furthermore, modifications can be made to the default sheets. For more information, please click on the following link.
