View Full Version : First problems using ASD 2011

This is my first thread, so please be merciful :)
I am experiencing the following problems:

I have changed the appearance of the drawn items from the "styles->construction drawings - settings". However, when I choose the automatic procedure for some element (ie a beam) ASD draws it using its own style, different from the settings that I have chosen.

Is there a way to control the visibility options of whole groups of reinforcement (for example a group of distributed bars)?

I have customized the tables so that all names of the table cells appear in Bulgarian, but when I hit the "Reinforcement table update" button, all names return in English.

I have read that some users are experiencing problems with editing reinforcement that is exported from Revit. Well, so do I :)

These are the main problems I've encountered in ASD... for now :)
I hope to read some solutions from users that are more skilled than me.
Thank you.

Is there something wrong with my question? Or no one wants to discuss it :(

Probably you need to configure the ASD to your regional settings, more than personalize templates.

Thank you, I'll try this.
And any ideas about the visibility of groups?
I can explain exactly what my question is:
Here in Bulgaria the manner of drawing insists on showing top and bottom reinforcement to be shown in two different drawings (although the formwork of the slab is the same). I want to draw the formwork of the slab and then the top and bottom reinforcement on it. But when making the layouts for bottom reinforcement, I want to hide top reinforcement and vice versa. Is that possible? Because when a reinforcement distribution is drawn, it automatically goes to a system layer and I cannot change it.
Thanks again :)

Why don't you make 2 drawings?

I haven't denied this variant, but it's just a habit - when you work on one drawing, making corrections is faster and easier.
