Power Tip: How to Cross Reference Plans

Feature: How to Cross Reference Plans

Once you start taking on bigger projects, your Model Space can become far too cluttered. Breaking up a drawing into separate plans using Xrefs not only cleans up Model Space but allows for more than one drafter to work on a project at once. However, it also creates the need for each drafter to see the design in other drawings, which can also lead to an issue known as a circular reference – a drawing that references itself. This Power Tip will show you a cross-referencing technique that will prevent circular references.
