Place Drawing Volume by Two Points - Intergraph Smart 3D - Help

Intergraph Smart 3D Space Management

Intergraph Smart 3D
10.1 (2014 R1)

Creates a volume that is associated with a specific drawing volume component by using two points to represent opposite vertices of the volume. The two points can be located with standard tools, such as PinPoint or SmartSketch relationship indicators. You can place more than one volume, which means that the software creates more than one drawing for the drawing volume component.

The software places drawing volumes in the space hierarchy, visible on the Space tab in the Workspace Explorer.

Before using this command, you must first use the Drawings and Reports task to place a drawing view with any scale value, including No Scale. For more information about placing drawing views, see the Orthographic Drawings User's Guide, available from the Help > Printable Guides command in the software.
