Plan Set For Bidding

Recommended Posts

With HomeDesigner is there a built in system for creating a Plan Set (Architectural, Structural, Civil, Mechanical, Electrical) or must that be done outside the software? I can't find anywhere that the "Layout" can have more than one page.

That is a limitation of the Home Designer products.

 

The common work around is to make copies of your plan when it's complete. One for architectural, one for electrical etc.

Only in Home Designer Pro do you have a "layout page", you make a different layout page for each printed page of plans ie. plan view.layout, then electrical.layout, elevations.layout, foundation.layout etc, one layout file equals one printed page. None of the other titles (Architectural, Suite, Interiors and Essentials) have that feature.

PS: Any software package contains tools and procedures, it is your job to find out from your local permit authority, what they require as acceptable plans and create them using the provided tools the software provides to meet those requirements. The software contains the tools, you must contain or acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to produce what the local Permit authority requires. No software on Earth that I know of, does the job for you, that is your job to do
