Objects vs. Entities What sets Architectural Desktop apart from AutoCAD is that it draws with intelligent, real-world building objects
versus standard drafting entities. There are 4 characteristics of an intelligent object. 1 ? Properties Everyone is used to the basic AutoCAD properties of layer, color, and linetype, which all objects have, but they also include properties specific to the object type, for example… Doors: frame depth, frame width, panel height, panel thickness, swing angle, etc. Walls: base height, component materials, width, etc. 2 ? Behavior Different objects have different behaviors depending on their situation, for example… If a door is inserted into a wall, the wall automatically cuts an opening for the door and re-hatches itself appropriately. If the door is moved or erased, the opening is filled-in and the hatching again updates. Graphical Representations These are essentially different visual “versions” of each object. Graphical Representations is a generic term that many different software products use, Architectural Desktop calls them Display Representations. Objects display differently depending on two factors… View Direction: a door shows as a frame, panel, and swing line in plan view, but in elevation, the door panel closes and shows the swing line as a chevron. Design Intent: a door shows as a frame, panel, and swing line in floor plans, but only as header lines in a reflected ceiling plan. To create your own Display Representation, you must duplicate one that already exists (thereby duplicating the same components. From the Display Manager, navigate to the “Representations by Object” folder and expand the Object you need. Right-click on any current Display Representation, and choose “Duplicate”.
