Existing -> Demolished -> New ?!

82 Views, 4 Replies

Is there a way to get a door or window to be visible as existing then demolished and then the same type of window or door in new construction.

I have a door set which is existing, it is demolished (in the Demolition Phase) and then replaced in the New Construction Phase. This all works in plan, but the model and elevations show the new new doorset in red with the wall material going over it.

Is there some way to solve this?

I'd also like to be able to have the demolition plan NOT infill the opening, but simply show the existing door as dotted out.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I think you need to change you phase filters. For a demolition plan, use a filter Show Previous and Demo while in the New Construction phase(you may need to create this one). For your 3D model view, use Show Previous and New in the New construction phase. The infill is automatic, but it is in the New construction phase. > Is there a way to get a door or window to be visible as existing then demolished and then the same type of window or door in new construction. > > I have a door set which is existing, it is demolished (in the Demolition Phase) and then replaced in the New Construction Phase.

Allen,

So simple, but not really documented (as far as I could find).

Thanks for the quick response.

But phasing is something I really didn't 'get' until I started using it. ;-) The difference between the 'phase' and the 'phase filter' and how you have to set each to get what you want out of a view is a little confusing at first. I've found it helps to think of it this way: 1. A 'Phase' is actually a range of time, not a point. 2. Every Phase has stuff happening at the beginning, the middle, and the end. 3. The Phase setting in a view is which phase you're looking at. 4. The Phase Filters in a view then set whether you're seeing things at the beginning of that phase (Prior + Demo), the middle of that phase (Prior + New or Show All), or the end of that phase (Show Complete). I always make a 'current phase only' phase filter that's used just to help figure out what's in what phase and to help correct display issues. -- Jeffrey McGrew Application Specialist BSD AEC Technologies, a division of ID8 Media Inc.

That is one of the most coherent explanations of Phasing and Phase Filters that I've seen in the various forums. Thanks!
