Creating Elevations in the Architectural Toolkit

This Tech Tip explains how to insert the elevation views on an architectural drawing.

Once a plan view has been completed with windows, doors and roof line inserted, select the draw elevations option from the Archtectural Toolkit

Toolkit > Architectural > elevations > Draw

The Elevation Set up dialog appears.

Here you can adjust the Eaves height, Floor to Window and Door height, Pen Colour and the Line Type. It is not necessary to select the layers as AllyCAD will position each elevation in its correct layer.

Click on each window and door in the plan view that you want included in the elevation and press Spacebar once completed.
