Using Grid Lines for Property Lines

Here is a quick tip on how to use Grid lines to represent Property lines in your project.

Duplicate your Grid Type and call it Property Line GL
Turn off the Symbol and change the Line Type to match your property line.

Using grids for your property lines you can show the Property Lines in your elevation and section views to graphically display how close the building is to the property line.



  1. The problem with this methood is that it works only when the property lines are orthogonal!
    The same issue with reference planes! :(
    is there anyway to do it with non-orthogonal lines?

  2. You can do non-orthogonal grid lines with the Multi-Segment option, which becomes available when you are placing Grid lines.
