I have searched for what i am looking for.. and i found this.. http://forums.augi.com/showthread.ph...=linking+sheet
and it seems that help stopped... in 2009...
I am working in Civil 3D 2011. I have our SSM set up with Model Views from a "source" drawing. Our blocks have 3 fields.
Basically, Top half of the call out is linked to the view number.
The bottom half is divided in 2.
- The left half is linked to the “Location of Call Out” or the plan view in our sheets.
- The right half is linked to the “Location of Detail” or the last few sheets where the details are.
I’ll take you through the steps;
I create a Model view in the plan view sheet. We’ll call it sheet C-03 and View1. I qsave and then open my detail sheet or sheet C-08. I will go to the “Model Views” tab, expand sheet C-03, right click on “View1” and “Place on sheet”
The viewport is generated, the View Block is inserted. However, both fields of our block now say, “C-08 | C-08”
Subsequently, when I go to the original plan view, sheet C-03, I now click on the “Sheet Views” tab, right click and select “Place Call Out” and our block. I insert the block on sheet C-03 and the fields populate correctly. “C-03 | C-08”
I want to know how I can make the viewport block populate to be “C-03 | C-08”
I have the view block defined as “SheetSetPlaceholder -> SheetNumber” for the left side. This is where I want the plan sheet number to be placed. I.E.: C-03.
The right side is “CurrentSheetNumber” and displays correctly.
Now in comparison, our callout block is defined like this:
Left = CurrentSheetNumber
Right = SheetSet -> “C-08” -> SheetNumber
And it works.
So, long story short.. How do I link a detail view to the plan view and the plan view to the detail view?
