    Default Using visibility states

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I've been toying with this feature for a while and I must say it has saved
    me a lot of time. I have posted one of my dynamic casework blocks below.
    It is actually 4 individual pieces of casework in one block. Reason being is
    i have Handicap Accessible heights to deal with. Adult counter top height is
    34"max. Elementary 29" max. and kindergarten/preschool is 24" max. Plus
    standard adult height which is 36" max. My problem here was the shelving
    arrangement. Because my casework is not all even dimensions, I couldn't use
    the stretch command and get even spacing. So i created one piece of casework
    and then set up 3 other visibility states. With each state I hid the previous
    cabinet and inserted another cabinet and so on. I also had to make a visual
    state for back splashes as on a wet wall or one that has a sink, i needed to
    have them. on others, i was able to turn them off I also had to do this for
    some dimensions as I also arrayed the casework and sometimes i don't
    need the overall dim to be there if only one cabinet is used. I'm sure there
    may be faster ways to do this but this one worked for me and I was able to
    eliminate single blocks out of my library making more space on the network
    drive. Anyway, I hope you like it.
