2D Symbols

I've made a new version of a 2D symbols library.
The symbols appear only in 2D plan.
I could improve it with more symbols.
See this 2DSymbols

Re: 2D Symbols

I think your work is very useful. I saw many times people using CAD drawings to create these emergency plans with these symbols and everything is a mess, without clear standard.

As a suggestion you could create a group of symbols related with other kind of plans such as orientation plans used in Shopping centers:

Or maybe you can create symbols for electrical plans:


Anyway thanks four your contribution.

Re: 2D Symbols

For amateurs like me, this is useful. Both the symbols library (dorin/eTeks) and the legend provided by bitacovir. Just a note on usage that works for me: Use models for the various fittings (sockets, lamps, etc.) and then group them with the symbol. That way the 2D plan shows the symbol, while the 3D view shows the correct lamp, socket etc.

However, I have not managed to figure out what are standard symbols (especially for electricity). Lamp is easy, and already indicated with the light-sources, but for other elements I struggle. E.g. dorin's socket seems to have a slightly different meaning from bitacovir's. So if a pro cares to elaborate on the symbols library, so some text elaborate on the standard symbol sets would help. Wikimedia commons' collection of electrical symbols is of limited use to me without further explanation of what each symbol means.

Re: 2D Symbols

Playing around with the concept of symbols, I found out I actually needed to see the symbol location in both 2&3D views. At the same time I only wanted the lightsource itself when rendering. Very similar to the included light sources, but I wanted to make the mounting points more visible.

However, it is also reasonably easy is to do the same for wall-lamps - and without the light source: electric sockets, switches etc. For cable pipes I suppose one could use the arrow set or use dimensions. Attributes for reference in the SF thread: 2DSymbols

ok

Re: 2D Symbols

What are you using to make the symbols? And how do you make them only show on the 2d-view?

I have made electrical symbols using sh3d and export to obj but I could improve them if I could use something else to make them

Re: 2D Symbols

New version. I've put back the electrical, I've add few new ones.
I've remove lines and arrow lines.
With new features of SH3D-v5.0 it's possible to make more.

Here is the link to library
2DSymbols.v1.5.0.sh3f
and here
