    Kudos but convincing a practice to move to this system would be tough. Good for small outfits /one man bands I'm sure.

    Hi Mike, When i Over layed my light View-port or scene onto my heavy view-port etc, It was very difficult to align them up correctly, the nudging of the view-port was not accurate, I am using metric system and have my units set to mm and the percussion to 0.1mm. Any advice??

    Mike Brightman, you are a genius. You have figured out a method for software solutions for people who want to have more sophistication than AutoCAD, but less headache than Revit. This is great
