Trying to measure the placement of items


Recommended Posts

I'm stuck on this one. I've put items on a wall, speakers, TV, amplifier, etc. and now I'm trying to find a way to get a view that I can see the dimensions of where things are in relation to the floor. The placement. I tried elevation view but it only shows somethings and I still don't know how to get the dimensions to appear. Any help would be appreciated.

They are where I want them. What I would like is something that shows me the dimensions that I set them at and not have to go back and figure out the positioning that I did since I was doing it all in real time and didn't document where I positioned them since I thought there would be a way to get HDP to show me.

try a string of manual dimensions vertically at each object in elevation view. Or you may be able to now click on each item and see the description box and the dimensions should show up there

and for what you don't see in elevation view, make sure those particular items are "visible" for that camera view. Remember, every camera has their own choices for what you can and can't see

Ok, 

 

I don't know how to make them visible in the camera view. What setting is it that controls that. I selected the camera in plan view and opened it but I don't see anything there. Would it be some where else?

when you are using the camera you want, go to the "display options" box (the white one w/a red check mark in it). Then find the item group you are trying to show and see if that is checked or not. If it isn't, check it and it should show. Or take a look through your reference manual and see if that helps you as well.
