#7

hello @salvatoredragotta,

This node can relocate sheet view ports based on your provided template sheet view port location.
Below attached GIF and AlignViewports_Demo.dyn (7.0 KB)
for your info.


#8

Thank @jean. Do the sheet template views have to be of the same type of the one you want to re-align? Does it work with legends and schedules?


#9

It’s working fine. :sunglasses:

Edit: one more here,


#10

Hi Jean,

Can you make the list Sorted?

Cheers!


#11

Hello @interactiverendering, lists have been sorted(by name). :grinning: :smile:

Here is updated script for ViewSelector node view-selector-updated.dyn (7.2 KB) and it will also be updated in Quasar upcoming version.

Thanks mate, have a great day.


#12

Hi

Is there anyway to modify the nodes creating views out of rooms…specially ElevationinRoom.to be working with area elements as well please…that would be great help


#13

Hello @mohamed.mostafaDQCGU , if you want to modify and use “ElevationInRoom” Node or any other nodes in the Quasar package, you can directly go to the source code repository https://github.com/mgjean/quasar.
Thanks mate, have a great day.


#14

Thank you jean, unfortunately am not a well python user and i hope you can help me in making an update to the LinkLevelGrid node which used to hide levels and grids from links , i need it to run on all views not just the current view

hope you can help me with that one. thank you


#15

hi @mohamed.mostafaDQCGU, I’ve written LinkLevelGrid second version which applied for these view types (floor plans, ceiling plans, elevations, and sections views). I hope whoever needs to use this script, will use it wisely.
