Creating User-Defined Elevation Labels

The AutoCAD Architecture templates provide a number of predefined elevation labels.You may, however, want to create specific labels that are not included in any of the templates.

You can choose attributes for your own elevation labels, combine them into blocks, and create elevation labels from them.

Process Overview: Creating User-Defined Elevation Labels

Creating a user-defined elevation label consists of these basic steps:

  1. Determine the location of the property set definition of the custom label.
  2. If necessary, create a new property set definition to use in the custom label.
  3. Create a graphic symbol.
  4. Add attributes from the property set definition to the drawing.
  5. Create a block from the attributes.
  6. Create a multi-view block from the block.
  7. Add the elevation label to DesignCenter™.
